DIY Loofah Recipe with Lavender and Geranium Essential Oils

DIY loofah soaps with essential oils

It's time to make these fun loofah soaps. Place a couple by the sink for a refreshing hand wash or keep a few in the shower for smoother, more radiant skin from shoulders to heels.

Soft skin is coming your way. Here’s how to craft your own DIY loofah soaps with essential oils

Yield: About 15 soaps


3 natural loofah sponges about 12 to 15cm long each

2 pounds clear glycerin soap

Soap dye

Young Living essential oils—see our suggestions below

Round silicone moulds about 7cm in diameter

Loofah Instructions

Step 1. Cut the loofah sponge into 1-inch-wide disks and place in the mould, lying flat.

YL tip: Tie a string around your loofah before you place it in the mould. The string allows you to hang it from a hook in your shower, so you never drop the soap again!

Step 2. Cut the glycerin soap into about 30gm squares. Put 2 squares in a microwavable bowl and microwave on high for 30 seconds or until melted.

YL tip: Two squares make 1 soap. To make larger batches, melt more soap and add the proper amount of oil and dye to keep the ratios the same. We like making individual soaps so we can customise scents and colours.

Step 3. Add 3-4 drops of soap dye and 3-4 drops of your favourite essential oil to the melted glycerin soap. Mix well.

Step 4. Pour the glycerin soap mixture into the mould, fully covering the loofah sponge.

Step 5. Repeat until all the loofahs are covered with glycerin soap. Let them dry for 2-3 hours, pop the soaps out of the mould, and lather up.

What does exfoliation do?

Why exfoliate. By exfoliating, you’re removing the layer of dead skin cells sitting on top of your skin. Once those skin cells are gone, the lower layers can come to the surface, resulting in a brighter the appearance of your skin.

Beyond healthier-looking skin, there are more benefits of exfoliating. By removing the layer of dead skin cells it helps the skin better absorb products like serums and lotions. For best results and silky-smooth skin, exfoliate 2-3 times a week and follow the exfoliation with a rich moisturiser like our Coconut-Lime Replenishing Body Butter or Young Living Lavender Body Lotion. By combining exfoliation and moisturisation it will help revitalise and rejuvenate the appearance of even the driest skin.

Tip: The loofahs in these soaps are great for exfoliating the body, but shouldn't be used for the face, as the facial skin is more delicate and needs a gentle touch. For the face, use Young Living's Satin Facial Scrub.

Which Oils to Use?

Each DIY loofah soap calls for 3-4 drops of essential oil, so keep the blends simple. You can also scent your soaps with just one essential oil for a nice concentration of your favourite smell. Here are a few essential oil combo ideas:

Relaxing retreat: Peace & Calming with Copaiba essential oil

Masculine mood: Shutran with Black Spruce essential oil
