Are you feeling stumped on what to give as gifts this Christmas? Winter soap might be what you are looking for. 

These easy melt and pour soap recipes for beginners are fool-proof ideas you have to try. They are nice stocking stuffers for tweens and gifts for adult children who come home to visit for the holidays. Even older women will love the thoughtful gift of a beautiful soap.

The overall process is simple yet highly customizable, so you can be as creative as you like with these winter soap recipes. I sometimes use the essential oil blends for soap that I made, because some combos like lavender and peppermint or spearmint and patchouli also remind me of the holidays!

Furthermore, buying all the materials won’t break the bank either. Many DIY projects look cute and inspiring, but the cost and effort are way too much to make them viable options when you get down to it. You won’t have that problem with these soaps!

How to Make Winter Soap?

Melt and pour soap recipes consist of a premade soap base. That means there’s no need to fiddle with lye. This process is completely lye-free and chemical-free. 

Bases come in an assortment of suspensions. For example, you can choose various formulas from goat milk, shea butter, glycerin and more.

  1. When you’re ready to start, cut the soap base into small cubes.
  2. Then, melt the material in a microwave or double boiler on the stovetop.
  3. Next, stir in colors, essential oils, chocolate powder or other fun add-ins.
  4. Now, pour the liquid into silicone molds of your choice and let cool.
  5. Finally, remove the hard soap from its mold and store in an airtight container.

By the time you’re done, your whole house might smell like the holidays! Keep these cozy winter fragrances going all season long by trying our 15 Winter Essential Oil Blends too.

You may want to keep them all for yourself. However, if gift giving is your goal, there’s nothing cuter than wrapping soap in parchment paper and tying it with a ribbon. It’s simple yet elegant, and above all, budget-friendly. 

Attaching sprigs of holly or a candy cane to the package takes the presentation to the next level. The final touch makes each one memorable. Everyone will love these!
