I’m a huge fan of being frugal and making your own products. Not only is it a great way to save money and learn new skills, it’s always nice to have home made soap in the bathroom. It’s also really thoughtful when you put effort into a gift which is made in the home rather than store bought. 

Ingredients For Strawberry Heart Soaps 


  • ¼ lb melt and pour soap base
  • 1 drop red liquid soap dye
  • 10 drops strawberry soap fragrance

Top Tip:

I really hope you enjoyed this simple tutorial. The first time I attempted to make soap I used the wrong kind of container which melted in the microwave and stunk the whole kitchen out. 

To avoid this make sure you use products designed for the microwave!
