Exfoliating Foot Soap

9 Materials
2 Hours

This soap has loofah and ground nuts to exfoliate your feet. I also added some peppermint essential oil to soothe tired or achy feet.

You'll need:

1 pound melt and pour soap

1/2 tablespoon ground almonds

1/2 tablespoon aloe vera powder

1/2 teaspoon peppermint essential oil

1/2 teaspoon tea tree essential oil

red mica

4 loofah slices

The ground almonds help scrub your feet to exfoliate more dead skin off of your feet.

I also added some aloe vera powder to moisturize the skin.

Peppermint is cooling on your feet, so it feels great if your feet are tired or ache. Tea tree naturally kills germs.

Cut the soap into 1 inch cubes and microwave in 30 second intervals until melted. Add the ground almonds and stir well.

If you're using a loofah "loaf", cut it into 1 inch slices and put one in each mold cavity.

Pour the soap over the loofah to fill the mold. Let it sit for a few hours until fully hardened Remove the soap and you can use it right away.

I used the Crafter's Choice round mold. The loofah slices fit perfectly into it.

    Could you use Aloe Vera gel instead of the powder?

    • Everything Pretty
      on Sep 8, 2019

      Yes, you can add up to 1 teaspoon per pound of soap. The powder is just more concentrated. You could also omit it completely.

    Has anyone used metal muffin tin for soap molds for this or other soap with success?

    • Everything Pretty
      on Sep 8, 2019

      Yes. I prefer silicone, but metal works. Once the soap is cooled, put it in the freezer for 10 minutes and try to remove. You may need to hit the bottom with a spoon to pop them out. If it doesn't work, try freezing for 5 more minutes. Don't leave it in the freezer too long or they might sweat. They are usable if they sweat, but it won't look pretty.

    Is this used in the shower/bath?

    Don't know if you know but from my understanding from those who done it already they say that you can use a muffin pan to do this project instead of buying the mold
