This is the Peppermint essential oil I used. It smells fantastic!

As mentioned, this calendula soap recipe is infused with calendula oil. First, you’ll need to make a batch (don’t worry, it’s super easy). If you only plan to use the infused oil for this recipe, just make a small batch like I did.

Calendula Oil Directions

If you have time to spare, mix the carrier oil (I used sweet almond oil) with a small bunch of petals and place it in a clear jar. Set the jar by a window and allow the oil to infuse in the sun for several days.

However, if you’re short on time, or just making a very small batch (like I did), you can infuse the oil using heat! In a small saucepan, heat the oil and petals over low for about 10-15 minutes. Be very careful not to boil or burn the oil! Just use very low heat for a gradual infusion. Then, you can remove from heat and allow to cool to room temp before use.

Soap Making Directions

In a heat-safe bowl, melt the soap base in the microwave until all cubes have dissolved into an even liquid.

Next, remove from the microwave and stir in the essential oil.

Now, for the infused oil that you made! To this base, add 1-2 tablespoons of calendula oil. MP soap bases are packed with nourishing oils so you don’t need to add much when working with them.

Carefully pour the soap mixture into a prepared mold. I used a silicone loaf pan, but feel free to use other mold shapes and designs if you’d like to.

Immediately sprinkle the remaining calendula petals over the top of the soap. You want to do this step quickly after pouring as the soap will begin to set pretty fast and you want the petals to stick.

Finally, allow the finished soap to cool and set completely before taking it out of the mold. Cut the block into even slices (mine are about 1/2 inches thick) and package in clear cello bags to showcase just how pretty they are!

    1. You can try putting int he flowers first, then pouring some of the base over it, leaving a bit of room to the top. After that, you can use a toothpick to reposition the flowers if they float to the top, then add some more of the base for a smoother finish to the top. You can also try a layer approach, where you add the base, let it dry for about 20-30 minutes, add the flowers to the top, then add some base, let it dry for about 20-30 minutes, and finish off with another layer of the soap base. You can sure try the Honey SFIC Glycerin Melt and Pour Soap Base.

      Hope this helps!

  1. Good evening

    What size loaf mold did you use? Can I use a 10lb loaf mold? After the flowers are infused in the almond oil are we to just pour the oil into the M&P? Do we need to use all 4lbs?
