Are you looking for a healthy and effective way to keep your family clean and germ-free? Look no further than homemade soap! With just a few simple ingredients, you can create a soap that’s both gentle on your skin and tough on germs.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 pound of soap base (we recommend using a natural, unscented base)
  • 1 tablespoon of vitamin E oil
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of tea tree oil
  • A few drops of your favorite essential oil (optional)


Cut the soap base into small cubes and melt them in a double boiler. (If you don’t have one, fill a larger saucepan with a few inches of water and a smaller saucepan on top. The ingredients that need to be melted go in the smaller saucepan.) Stir occasionally to ensure the soap melts evenly.

Once the soap is melted, remove it from the heat and add in the vitamin E oil, honey, and tea tree oil. Stir until everything is well combined.

Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil and/or soap colorant if desired. Stir again.

Pour the mixture into soap molds and let it cool for several hours until it’s completely solid.

Once the soap has hardened, pop it out of the molds and store it in an airtight container until ready to use.

This homemade soap is a great way to keep your family clean and germ-free while avoiding the harsh chemicals in many store-bought soaps. Plus, it’s fun and easy to make with the kids! Give it a try, and let us know how it goes.

By creating homemade soap, you can teach your kids about the importance of using natural ingredients and avoiding harsh chemicals. You can also experiment with different scents and colors to create unique and personalized soaps that your kids will love. So, get ready to have fun and create your own DIY soap-making project that your family will enjoy!
