These DIY Piña Colada Mini Pineapple Soaps are the perfect way to keep your skin refreshed and ready to show off! Pineapple + coconut are a delicious tropical combination that smells incredible!
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!
If you love this idea, don’t forget to pin it!
Your recipe calls for 1 block of gold colorant. What is the measurement of 1 block? I can’t find the colours in a block. Only in a powder form. Also, how much of the lime green colour?
Hi Christina, it looks like the gold block colorant that I used and linked to is currently unavailable. Since different brands of colorant can vary wildly in intensity, I suggest starting with adding a very small amount and then adding more as desired until you achieve the shade that you want. Melt and pour soaps do not generally experience any dramatic changes in color as they cool and harden, so the colors that you create in your melted soap base will be VERY close to the color of your finished soaps.
I am over-the-moon delighted 🤗 that I came across your site. From the bottom of my heart, buckets full of thank yous for doing all this so people like me can follow easily along. This has been by-far the best site EVER!!!!! 👍👍
These are so fun! How many pineapples does this recipe make? One mold’s worth?

Hi there Heidi!
I went to order the ingredients for the pineapple soap, and I had a question. The instructions call for metallic gold for the body of the pineapple, but in your photos it’s a pale yellow. Could you let me know if there is another color I should get for this project?
Thank you so much!
Hi Candy, I used the metallic gold for the body of the pineapples as stated in the post. The gold, when mixed with the white soap base, actually looks more like a shimmery pale yellow. 🙂
