Five Minute Spiced Apple Goats Milk Soap

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Spiced Apple Goats Milk SoapYaaay! There is a little taste of fall here in our Georgia mornings! It can’t be too far away and I am sooo ready for my favorite season! So to celebrate its arrival, I have created a special soap that just smells like fall…my spiced apple goats milk soap! And best of all, it only takes about five minutes to put it together. Seriously…if I had any idea that soap-making was this easy, I would have started it long ago!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Spiced Apple Goats Milk Soap Here’s what you will need:
  • Goats milk glycerin soap (Mine came from Michaels. I used 1/2 of a 2 pound block.)
  • Apple soap scent (Mine came from Hobby Lobby. Note that this is NOT essential oil.)
  • Apple pie spice (Yep…the kind used in baking!)
  • Coloring for the soap if you wish ( I added  a few drops of orange since I thought red would make it turn pink.)
  • Heavy glass bowl for melting the soap
  • Molds (I used clear plastic rectangular ones from Hobby Lobby.)
  • Non-stick spray such as Pam
And here’s what you will do:
  1. Slice off as much soap as you plan to use. (I used one pound which made 4 rectangular bars.)
  2. Follow the directions on the soap to melt it in the microwave. Be sure not to overheat it!
  3. When it is completely melted, stir in 1/2 teaspoon of apple pie spice and gradually add soap scent to your liking. As noted, this is NOT essential oil, so you may need to add more. I used about 1/2 of the package (or 1/4 ounce) for one pound of soap.
  4. Spray the molds with non-stick spray, pour in the soap and let it cool and harden.
  5. Once they have hardened, simply pull the molds back around the edges to release the soap. It may take several tries, but it will work!

  1. Oh, I love this! I had to send my crafting class your link. They are carried away with making different types of soaps as gifts and this would be wonderful to make. I could almost smell the scent as I am reading your tutorial!

  2. OMGosh..I'm going to try this. I LOVE scented soaps. I only made soap once and it was the old fashioned way with lye and it was an outdoor project. Never again. Can't wait to try your recipes..

  3. So easy! Who knew! I love the Mizz Ozzie in the leaves. I'm ready for some cooler weather for sure! Time to get out my Fall decor.

  4. I made your lavender soap and it was so easy although I had no idea how much essential oil to add so I winged it. I bought cute soap molds. I'm also going to experiment with lotion bars. Fun and easy project. Thanks for your posts.

    Thank you again, I love it!!

  13. Can you use essential oils for soap instead of soap fragrance? What's the difference?

    1. Yes, you can. It depends on what you have in mind. Here's a good article explaining the difference.
