How to Make a Base Oil for Your Bathroom Soap

When I was growing up, soap was my favourite, but it was never made with the same care and attention to detail that soap makers are known for nowadays.

And if you’re like me, the last thing you’d want to do with soap is remove the most essential ingredient, which is water.

So I thought I’d try my hand at making a base oil that would last longer than a lifetime.

My inspiration for this was a local soap maker called Oasis that makes their soap in the UK. 

When I was in the early days of soap making, I noticed how simple it is to make a soap base, even if you don’t know how to make soap, and I decided to try it.

The soap base I came up with is just water. 

I’ve used it for years and it has been my go-to soap base for years.

It’s very similar to regular soap, but without the oils.

I use the same base for all my soap making and I always make a batch to keep on hand. 

For the base, I used the same soap that I use in my home: my favourite natural soap, Dove Natural. 

The soap has a lot of oils in it and I also added some natural flavouring to make it even more luxurious. 

My favourite natural oil, Lavender Essential Oil, is made from a plant, Lavandula angustifolia. 

Lavender Essential oil is also known as a toner or oil that is used in lotions, hair care products and cosmetics. 

It is used for its calming properties, and when used in products such as body scrubs and lotions it can reduce the skin’s sensitivity to harsh chemicals, such as alcohol and petrolatum. 

Here is a photo of my base in action. 

This soap has been made from my favourite soap, so I love it!

I also like that it smells so good. 

How does it make a base? 

The most important part is to add some of your favourite natural oils to your base. 

Oasis makes a soap that’s made from their own soap and is made to be a natural product.

The essential oils used in their soap are from Lavandulias plants, which are plants that are used in aromatherapy, soaps, candles and perfumes. 

There are so many oils in natural soap that can be used as base oils. 

To get started, add a small amount of your natural oil to a jar of soap. 

Wipe off any excess and add more as needed. 

Mix it until you have a smooth base oil. 

You can mix it with a little water to make your base smell like fresh water.

Then, add just a few drops of your choice of your essential oil to the jar. 

If you’re using a bit more oil than your soap does, you may want to add a little extra to give it a bit of a kick. 

Use a small spoon to apply the soap base to a clean sponge and gently massage it to create a nice oil-like texture. 

Add some of the soap oil and your essential oils to the soap jar.

I like to add about 2 teaspoons of each, but if you want a thicker base, it’s fine to add more. 

Pour the soap into a clean jar, close it and use a toothpick to scrape any excess from the bottom of the jar, then open the jar and place the soap in a clean container and let it sit for about a week. 

After a week, the base will have softened enough to be suitable for use. 

Do you want your soap to last longer? 

I love to make my soap at home, so when I was trying to find something to use as a base, Oasis was right up my alley. 

They offer an easy recipe for their soap base that is easy to follow, and makes for a very luxurious soap.

I love the idea of adding a bit extra to the recipe and I love that you can experiment with the amount of essential oils you want in the base to find what works best for you. 

Where to buy your soap: Oasis’ soap base is available from Oasis UK at Oases shop, 8, Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogery, wales, UK.
