Pineapple + coconut are a deliciously tropical combination, and these DIY Piña Colada Mini Pineapple Soaps are the perfect way to keep your skin refreshed and ready to show off!
Note: these directions were originally included in our DIY Piña Colada Sugar Scrub post, but they’ve been such a hit that I decided they needed their own reference page 🙂
While I making piña colada sugar scrub, and I already had the pineapple fragrance oil out, I whipped up a quick batch of these adorable mini pineapple soaps. They make a great gift idea and take just a few minutes and a couple of ingredients to make!
WHAT YOU’LL NEED TO MAKE PINEAPPLE MINI SOAPS:
- Coconut Milk Soap Base
- Pineapple Fragrance Oil
- Metallic Gold Soap Colorant
- Lime Green Soap Colorant
- Pineapple Silicone Mold
I didn’t take any step-by-step photos of the process this time, but don’t worry – it’s super easy! If you want more in-depth detailed instructions on how to make melt & pour soaps, check out our DIY Pumpkin Spice Soap post!
For these mini pineapple soaps, I used about 1/2 lb. of the soap base in a Pyrex measuring cup, and added 5 drops of pineapple fragrance and 1 block of gold soap colorant. I filled the pineapple molds 2/3 of the way full with gold soap (there will still be soap leftover in the measuring cup), and allowed it to cool. I took the remaining gold soap in the measuring cup and melted it again, adding lime green colorant to the gold, and filled the remaining 1/3 of each pineapple mold. Allow to cool completely before removing soap from molds.
Easy peasy, and SUPER cute! It’s hard to tell in these photos, but the pineapples are actually really shimmery and sparkly!
