How to Make Luffa Soap

Why not add some luffa soaps to your endeavor? Your guests will love them and you’ll benefit by the proceeds. Furthermore, it’s just good business to offer your guests some extra nice things such as fine, natural soaps. One of the awesome things about luffa soap is that it gets you squeaky clean without being too abrasive.

Here is how you make luffa soaps:

  1. Take a soap mold and place a 1” thick luffa slice into it.
  2. Melt enough melt-and pour type soap to cover the mold.
  3. Add color or essential oils if desired.
  4. Apply a fine spritz of alcohol onto the luffa so the soap adheres to it.
  5. Pour the liquid over the luffa to fill cavity and tap to dislodge air bubbles.
  6. When cool, remove from the mold and carefully wrap the soap immediately.
