I believe in winning friends with gifts. I just can’t help myself, but if I can “buy you”, IMMA TRY. And lately, I’ve been on a bit of a handmade soaps & lotions kick. I recently made a cocoa butter body butter and I love it. It melts like butter. (pun intended.) I decided to try my hand at a few other kinds of skincare and this DIY soap recipe is my current fave what with its coconut scent and its sweet pink Himalayan salt. It’s just the classiest of soaps. And it looks even classier when packaged up with one of these printable geometric soap labels! So many goods to win us so many friends!
To make your Coconut & Himalayan Sea Salt Soap:
- ArtMinds Shea Butter Soap Base
- Coconut Oil Soap Fragrance
- Pink himalayan salt
- silicone ice molds
- microwaveable bowl & spatula
Break off several large chunks of the soap base and heat in the microwave in for forty seconds. Stir it up, and then continue heating for 10-15 seconds and stirring until everything is melted. Add a few drops of your fragrance of choice (coconut for the win!) and stir to combine. Slowly pour the soap into the ice molds.
I thought I’d play around with some color, but these didn’t really give me the nice pastel shade I was going for. They were a little more saturated, but still fun! Add a few drops of color and use a toothpick to marble the color in the soap.

We found some matching paper bags lined with copper and they’re the perfect little bag to stuff to the brim with soap. Tie the label around the top and get ready to buy all the friends you can handle! Everyone wants some salty soap!
