Green Apple Soap with Oatmeal and Thyme

I just finished making my first batch of hand-milled soap. It needs 24 hours to dry so I can take it out of its mold. If that doesn't happen, I would have to rebatch it. But for now, let me share with you what I did.

  • Double Boiler
  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 cups of dry grated soap base
  • 1/4 tsp. of color
  • 1/8 tsp. of scent
  • 2 tsps. of oatmeal
  • 1/4 tsp. of thyme
  • plastic mold
  • petroleum jelly


  • Prepare the double boiler and turn on the heat.
  • Pour the water into the top pan of the double boiler.
  • Pour the grated soap base into the water.

  • Mix it.
  • Once the soap is totally melted, add the color.
  • When the mixture is even, turn off the heat.
  • Put in all the other ingredients and keep mixing.

  • Prepare the mold by waxing it with a thin layer of petroleum jelly so the soap can easily pop out after drying.
  • Pour the mixture into the mold.

Hopefully, it works out well. If not, I am planning to rebatch and superfat it with olive oil.

Ciao for now!


  1. Hi Jen!!

    This is so cool! I wanna try this out too. Where can I buy the dry soap base?

    Now I am excited....waiting for your response :D

  2. Hey jade, there's a factory that sells it in bulk. But if you want to buy some, I can sell you mine. So cheap lang, Php350.00 per kilo.:)

  3. Hi Ate Jhen. We have this Entrep Subject in school, and soap-making yung napuntang project sa amin. We're planning to produce a herbal soap.

    Saan po ba pwedeng makabili ng mga ingredients like yung scent, color, and glycerine soap? We've already check some shops sa mall, wala kaming makita eh.
