When it comes to things in our bathroom there is one staple that is always there, and that is soap. Soap to wash your hands, and soap for decorative purposes, bottles or bars of soap are useful things to have.
Soap can also be something that you might want to include in a DIY hamper as a gift, or even as a small wrap=up for birthdays or Christmas.

How to make the Cinnamon Apple Soap Bars
Now that you have everything that you need to make these lovely soap bars, here is how you create them.
Cut the soap base into one-inch cubes and place them into a measuring cup.
Heat in the microwave on high in 30-second bursts, stirring between each heating session, until the soap base is fully melted. If 30-seconds is not enough, do another burst of 30 seconds in the microwave.
Now take your melted soap mixture and add the cinnamon, then stir well, until fully blended.
The next part involves creating the scent. Add the fragrance oils and stir well to ensure that they are combined.
Pour the soap into the molds, and allow to set. Make sure the soaps are undisturbed for 2 hours to ensure they are set properly.
Unmold and reveal your Cinnamon Apple Soap Bars. Now use them in your home or gift them to your friends and family.
Notes and tips
- Make sure you have all of your supplies to hand in before starting this process. It is important to help you move to each step.
- If children are helping then make sure they are supervised at all times. You will be dealing with the hot soap mixture, and this can be dangerous if your children are left alone with it.
- Make sure you give the Cinnamon Apple Soap Bars time to set. This will ensure that they form properly and will be able to be used.
- Don’t overheat the soap mix cubes. Always do 30-second intervals in the microwave and check each time.
- Give yourself time to make the soap bars, you don’t want to rush the process.
You can really make these your own and more personal if they are being made for gifts. Here are some of the variations you could try:
- If you are not a fan of the apple or cinnamon, why not change things up a little? You could easily adapt this method to suit different scents and looks. The cinnamon is used to create the overall look as well as a scent, so you could use mica powder in different colors instead. Look at different essential oils and see what fragrances you like.
- You could add other elements if you do decide to do something different. For example, flower petals.
- Buy different shaped molds if you are looking to create something a bit different. An apple shape would look perfect.
- If creating the Cinnamon Apple Soap Bars as a gift, wrap them in plastic wrapping and then add a sticker to advise what it is.
