DIY Loofah Soaps.

I love loofah soaps and my favorite ones are from Basin, a bath and body shop at Downtown Disney.

But since the shop is in central Florida and I am in Michigan, I decided it was about time for me to cook up some of my own.  I found this recipe over at Martha Stewart Crafts and am so happy with how my soaps turned out.  Saves a lot of money too!  The ones at Basin are around $6-$7 a piece and by doing it myself, I got 5 soaps for less than $10.  I got my loofah over at the dollar store, they are $4.00 at Target, so that helped keep the price down. 

Want to try it for yourself? 

Tools and Materials:
Waxed paper
Tart tin
Ready-melt soap (such as honey-glycerin and honey-oil mixtures)
Double boiler (or microwave)

Loofah Soap How-To

1. Cut a half slice of loofah using a bread knife.

2. Place slice in tart tin with cups lined with waxed paper.

3. Place brick of ready-melt soap in the top of a double boiler. You can also melt the soap in a microwave.

4. Pour enough soap into tart tin until loofah slice is just covered.

5. Wait about 30 minutes for soap to completely harden before popping it out from tin.
