    Heres how to make Argan oil calendula soap—it’s super easy! Argan oil is derived from the kernels of the Argan tree 

    How to make easy Argan Oil Calendula Soap Bars

    This base’s vibrant golden color is naturally derived from the Argan oil used to produce it. It is SLS and SLES free, rich in Vitamin E, and all vegetable based. While its color might suggest an odor, the soap base has a neutral scent (perfect for adding your own fragrance) and a high glycerine content. You’re going to love it!


    • Stephenson’s Argan Oil soap base
    • Calendula flower petals
    • A glass bowl for melting your base (preferably something with a handle)
    • A fragrance oil of your choice
    • Single cavity log soap mold 
    • Isopropyl alcohol spray 
    • I

    STEP 1

    In a small bowl, prepare your Calendula flower petals you can purchase from local naturals store or they can also be purchased online.

    STEP 2

    Take your Argan Oil soap base and cut it into small easy-to-melt cubes. You’ll notice the base is fairly opaque at this point: Note that it will melt clear! Microwave your soap base in 15-30 second intervals, stirring after each interval, until your base is completely melted. Be sure to not overheat the soap by melting it longer than necessary, as this will cause your soap to lose its moisture when it hardens and can make your soap base boil over.

    STEP 3

    Once your base is melted, add your fragrance oil, stir thoroughly, and pour your base into your loaf soap mold. You may want to utilize oven mitts, as your glass bowl may be hot!

    STEP 5

    Before your soap starts to dry (you will see a thin film of dried soap slowly start to form on top of your soap loaf if you wait too long), sprinkle your dried calendula flower petals over the top of the loaf mold, gently and carefully pressing down to ensure your flower petals stick to the top of the soap. The petals should float, but if a few sink to the bottom, no harm done. Since your soap base is clear, it will have a nice effect anyway!

    STEP 6

    Allow your soap base to dry thoroughly before attempting to slice it into soap bars! This process can take several hours depending on the size and depth of your soap loaf, and slicing your soap too early can ruin the beautiful look of your soap.

    I hope you enjoyed this soap making tutorial!
