Candy Corn Soap

Fun and Easy DIY Candy Corn Soap - perfect for Halloween and Thanksgiving! 
Servings 6


  • 1 lb. Goats Milk or Shea Butter Soap Base, cubed
  • 10-15 drops Sunset Yellow Soap Colorant
  • 10-15 drops Sunset Red Soap Colorant (plus additional Sunset Yellow if needed)
  • 30 drops Candy Corn Fragrance Oil (or scent of choice)


  • Start by cutting the large 2-lb block of soap base in half (set half aside for later), and cut 1 lb. of the soap base into small cubes. Divide the cubes into three piles. 
  • Place one of the piles of soap cubes into the Pyrex measuring cup, and melt in the microwave in 20-30 second increments, stirring well after each microwave session to ensure that the soap is completely melted. 
  • Carefully mix in Sunset Yellow soap colorant (10-15 drops as needed) and Candy Corn fragrance oil (10 drops) until the desired color/scent is reached, and pour the liquid soap into the mold.
  • Spray the top of the soap with isopropyl alcohol to break the surface tension and remove any air bubbles, and allow the soap to cool for 20 minutes.
  • Repeat the process for the orange (Sunset Red mixed with a tiny bit of Sunset Yellow) and white layers, allowing the orange layer to cool for 20 minutes before pouring the white layer. IMPORTANT NOTE: Before pouring the melted soap into the mold, spray the top of the previous soap layer with alcohol again to help the layers adhere together! 
  • Allow the soap to cool until it is completely firm (around 60-90 minutes depending on the temperature and humidity) before unmolding. 
  • Slice the loaf of soap into 5-6 individual bars. Trim the bars into triangle shapes to resemble candy corn pieces.
