DIY Christmas Cinnamon Soap Recipe

DIY Christmas Cinnamon Soap Recipe

Making homemade cinnamon soap for Christmas can be a delightful project! Here’s a simple recipe to create festive and fragrant cinnamon soap:


  • 2 cups clear glycerin soap base (available at craft stores)
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 10-15 drops cinnamon essential oil
  • Soap mold
  • Rubbing alcohol (in a spray bottle)
  • Small microwave-safe bowl
  • Spoon for stirring


  1. Prepare Your Workspace: Set up your workspace by covering it with parchment paper or newspaper. Make sure all your materials and tools are easily accessible.

  2. Cut the Soap Base: Cut the glycerin soap base into small cubes or chunks. This will help it melt more easily and evenly.

  3. Melt the Soap Base: Place the soap cubes in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in short bursts (30 seconds to 1 minute) until the soap base melts completely. Stir gently after each interval to ensure even melting. Be cautious not to overheat the soap.

  4. Add Cinnamon: Once the soap base is melted, add the ground cinnamon and cinnamon essential oil. Stir well to combine. Adjust the amount of cinnamon oil for your desired fragrance strength.

  5. Pour into Molds: Carefully pour the melted soap mixture into the soap molds. Spritz the surface lightly with rubbing alcohol to eliminate any air bubbles that may have formed.

  6. Cool and Set: Allow the soap to cool and harden completely. This might take a few hours, depending on the size of your molds and the room temperature.

  7. Unmold and Store: Once the soap has solidified, gently remove it from the molds. Store the finished cinnamon soap in an airtight container or wrap them in decorative paper for gifting.

  8. Label and Decorate (Optional): Consider labeling your homemade soaps with a festive touch, adding ribbons, or other decorative elements for a personalized finish.

Remember, homemade soaps might not last as long as commercially produced ones, so it’s best to use them within a few months. Also, cinnamon can sometimes be a skin irritant, so if you have sensitive skin, it might be wise to test a small area before using it on your body.

Have fun creating your Christmas cinnamon soaps! They'll make wonderful gifts or additions to your holiday décor.
