Here is another fun and easy-to-make DIY: homemade soap. It is the best alternative to industrial soap which may cause skin rash or allergies. This 100 % natural soap would be the perfect gift for those who love beauty and body care products.


  • 10 ounces or 284g of goat milk or natural soap (no fragrance)
  • A grapefruit or an orange
  • A tablespoon of poppy seed
  • 10 drops of grapefruit or orange essential oil
  • 4 drops of mint essential oil


  • A glass bowl to make the soap
  • A grater
  • A silicone mould


1. Cut the soap into cubes (280 g or 5-6 bars)

2. Put within reach the grapefruit, poppy seeds and essential oil

3. Melt the soap in the microwave for 30 secs or over the stove.

Stir with a wooden utensil to avoid burning the soap.

4. Once the soap is completely melted, pour the liquid into a measuring cup

5. Add in and mix the grapefruit zests, poppy seeds and essential oils

6. Pour the mixture into the silicone mould and wait until it hardens

Tips: Poppy seeds are great for exfoliating. Goat milk is hydrating for the skin. Grapefruits are also a good toner for the skin.

Have fun!
