DIY Body Soap That Smells So Good You May Accidentally Eat It
…Okay, so, maybe you won’t actually eat it. Yet, we can gladly say that this soap is not only an eco-friendly option for your shower time ritual, but it smells heavenly.
To spill the beans on what makes it so yummy, here are the three major ingredients: cinnamon essential oil, vanilla essential oil and shea butter. We know, that sounds like the start to a dessert recipe, and we promise scent-wise it is.
First, let’s break down the ingredients and their role in this soap:
Shea Butter Soap:
Shea Butter is a skin treat! It’s naturally moisturizing, giving your body a dose of luxurious softness. Derived from the nut of the shea tree, its substance is naturally thick and creamy. Thus, making it the perfect base to a homemade soap!
Vanilla Essential Oil:
From vanilla scented perfumes to decadently fluffy vanilla cake, this is one smell tied to an inherent sweet tooth. Its scent is one of the most recognized and within good reason. The aroma can uplift the spirit and bring a sense of tranquility to the mind. After all, if it has you daydreaming about cake, how can you not feel a sense of ease, right?
Cinnamon Essential Oil:
Cinnamon is an age-old scent that is reminiscent of all things cheerful. Whether it be the onset of the fall season (as we are in now) or holiday time when you were a kid, its scent is tied to good memories. As a result, each time you breathe in the aroma of this oil, you’ll be reminded of happy days, making your shower experience all the more pleasant!
Now that we’ve completely sold you on this soap, here’s what you need to make it yourself!:
- Soap Molds (Shape is your choice)
- Cinnamon Bark 100% Pure Essential Oil
- Vanilla Essential Oil Blend
- 1 lb Melt and Pour Shea Butter Soap (Find online)
- Cinnamon Powder Organic (For Exfoliating Texture)
Melt the Shea butter base soap
Mix in the essential oils
Sprinkle a layer of ground cinnamon powder in the soap mold
Pour the liquid into the soap mold
Let sit for an hour, until it’s solid.
Use as you please!
Simple solution to getting clean, right? The best part is that you’ll smell great and help cut your environmental impact by not purchasing store-brought soap with packaging. Win-win!
