Hello again! In this post I will give you a list of the most commonly used soap making ingredients available.

As you probably already know, I've been making soap for quite some time and have actually been selling my soaps for some time too. This is how I found out just how important the soap making ingredients you use for your soaps really are!


Most Popular Soap Making Ingredients:
  1. Dye blocks. You will need these dye blocks to give color to your soaps. You can choose any color available. This is based on personal taste and style.
  2. Fragrance oils. These oils give aroma to your soaps. There are tons of different fragrance oils available (see soap making ingredients url link above for list and where to buy them for cheap).
  3. Natural moisturizing oils. These oils can vary from Castor oil, Olive oil, Coconut oil, Sunflower oil, or Avocado oil (see soap making ingredients url link above for more information on these oils).
  4. Lye. This is an essential soap making ingredient.
I actually use these soap making ingredients myself when I prepare my soaps and can tell you they enable you to make tons of awesome smelling, healthy, and really pretty soaps!

If you make soaps regularly as a business or even as a hobby, you should DEFINITELY buy wholesale soap making supplies. It can save you tons of money!

I started making soap a few years ago for myself and my family. I started it as a hobby and a way to let my creative juices flow. To tell you the truth, I find soap making a very relaxing activity that really helps me clear my mind and have less stress in my life.

I started buying wholesale soap making supplies after just a few weeks of soap making. Though I started out making soap for myself, my family, and my friends, I realized that I was going to be able to sell these soaps!

You know how it is. People talk. As soon as I started to give away soaps to my friends and family for their birthdays and holidays throughout the year (which is a really big money saver by the way!), I started to get phone calls with requests!

I found myself spending too much money on materials and instead started buying wholesale soap making supplies. Within a few months, I was selling my soaps in the local craft market in my town.

Because I buy wholesale soap making supplies, my profit margin is huge! I can tell you that buying wholesale soap making supplies totally makes sense. If you have a soap making business or even if you just make soaps as gifts for your family and friends for different occasions, it's totally worth it to buy wholesale! You get a way cheaper price and better quality ingredients and materials!

Hello again! So, you want to find out how to use soap making molds?


If you are new to soap making or have been doing so for years, you know the important of using soap making molds.

The art of soap making allows you to let your creative self loose and create gorgeous soaps that not only look gorgeous and smell wonderful but are healthy for your skin too!

Using soap making molds allows you to create whatever shape soaps you want. Soap making molds make the task of making the actual soap a heck of a lot easier and cuts down the time it can take by a huge margin.

Soap making molds come in different sizes, shapes, and material. No matter what size or shape you are looking for, make sure that the material of the soap making mold is heat resistant. If the soap making mold is not heat resistant, then you soap will not come out good.

Through the soap making classes I teach, Ive prepared sites on how to choose and what to look for in soap making molds. I hope you find them useful and that you find the best soap making molds to fit your needs!
