seaweed melt and pour soap recipe by lisa maligaSeaweed Soap is fun and easy to make. This recipe was created due to loving anything oceanic! Dried seaweed contains lots of minerals so it’s good for you. It can be found at any Asian market. Nourishing extra virgin olive oil is suitable for all skin types. Lavender and lemon essential oils add a touch of zest and make this soap smell clean and fresh!


32 ounces clear soap base

Dash of green mica

6-8 pieces dried seaweed

1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil

1.5 teaspoons lemon essential oil

1 teaspoon lavender essential oil


3 part Ziploc divided rectangle mold


Place broken up pieces of seaweed into mold. Slice the soap base into small cubes. Just before the soap is fully melted add the colorant, olive oil and essential oils. Stir well. Slowly pour into the molds. Spritz away bubbles with rubbing alcohol, or avoid this step for a more realistic looking soap. Allow soap to harden in fridge, freezer, or remain at room temperature. Remove from molds. Make sure soap is at room temperature before cutting and wrapping. You may want to cut the largest chunk of finished soap into 2 to 4 slices. A wavy edge soap cutter is recommended. Wrap in cling wrap and label.

  3. Thank you so much for your kind words, Anne.
    That’s great that you live near the sea so you have access to lots of free seaweed!
    However, it should be dried before adding it to melt and pour soap. The reason for this is that it naturally contains moisture so it’ll cause the soap to mold within a few days.
    For best results, use DRIED seaweed. Here’s a link to a blog that shows you how to dry seaweed:

    Hope this helps.
    Happy Soaping!
