Easy DIY soap that includes epsom & sea salts - perfect for exfoliating that tough dirt from a day spent in the garden!

Did you know making your own soap is easy and inexpensive to do? I’ve written about making your own soap before (back in my homesteading series), but wanted to share another idea for making your own gardener’s soap. This soap contains salt, which is excellent for helping to remove that deep grit that gets in your skin after a day of being in the dirt!

Here’s what you’ll need:

First, cut your melt and pour soap into small cubes and place in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 15-second bursts, stirring in between until completely melted.

At this point, you can mix in your color and/or fragrance (if you so choose!).


Don’t delay – add in the salts quickly! Immediately pour into molds. If the soap starts to harden, you can reheat the mixture in 10-second bursts.


Let harden fully before removing from the mold – about 30 minutes. That’s it!

Couldn’t be simpler, and it doesn’t even take a lot of time or equipment. This soap would make a lovely gift!
