Whipped soap leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth, but it is expensive to buy at a store. Make your own soap at home using a melt-and-pour base you can find at your local craft store. Create homemade whipped soap in any fragrance or color in minutes.

  1. Cut the melt-and-pour soap base into small cubes, about one to two inches per side. Place the chunks of soap into a microwave safe bowl and heat in the microwave for one to two minutes, or until the soap is completely melted.

  2. Remove the bowl from the microwave and allow the soap to cool for about one minute. Add fragrance oil or essential oil and soap colorant to the soap as desired.

  3. Mix the soap with an electric hand mixer or a stick blender on medium speed until the soap is bubbly and has doubled in size.

  4. Pour the whipped soap into a soap mold and allow it to harden overnight. Alternatively, you can put the mold in the freezer for about 10 minutes.

  5. Remove the soap from the mold and slice it into bars. Feel free to use your soap right away, as melt-and-pour soap does not require curing time.
