Calendula Melt and Pour Soap Recipe

3 Materials
1 Hour

Learn how to make a calendula soap recipe. This is good for dry skin. I also added shea butter to moisturize skin. Calendula is naturally anti inflammatory, so this is a good soap for dry skin. Calendula is one of two flowers that you can add to melt and pour soap, so don't substitute it with another flower.

To make the soap, you will need:

You can use your favorite essential oils. I like lavender essential oil or helichrysum essential oil. For a blend, I like Bumps and Boo Boos for skin.

Cut the soap into 1 inch cubes. Microwave the soap and shea butter on high in 30 second intervals. Stir between each interval. Repeat until all of the soap is melted.

Add add the dried calendula flowers and essential oils.

Stir well. Pour into a soap mold. I like this soap mold because the soap is easy to unmold. Each bar is 4 ounces, so you'll make 4 bars of soap with this recipe.

Your calendula soap is ready to use immediately. Use it for your hands or body. I have several essential oil suggestions in my calendula soap recipe and more information about each ingredient in my calendula soap recipe post.
