DIY Exfoliating Loofah Soap

DIY Exfoliating Loofah Soap

I just love when I discover a new health and/or beauty product that I can make at home for less money and that works better than the store-bought stuff!

Servings: 6 pieces


  • 2 pounds shea butter melt-and-pour soap base
  • 1 6- inch loofah
  • 20 drops lavender essential oil
  • Silicon mold or soap mold


  1. Begin by slicing your loofah into six equal slices with a bread knife, and squishing a slice of loofah into each soap mold. Any round-ish shape will do.
  2. Now chop up your soap base. Place your soap bits in a glass container and microwave for 15 seconds at a time, stirring each time.
  3. Once the soap is completely liquid, add the essential oil and a few drops of soap dye, if you want to.
  4. Simply pour the melted soap mixture into the mold, making sure to pour on all sides of the loofah - covering it completely.
  5. After an hour or two, the soap will be set up and ready-to-use!
