It’s pumpkin season and if you love pumpkin as much as my husband does, you’re going to love this pumpkin spice loofah soap. It’s fun and so easy to make, and it makes such a fantastically fall-smelling soap, you’ll want more.
Plus it makes for a great gift! Every time I make a batch I save some to give to our friends and family and it’s always a success!
Easy Pumpkin Spice and Honey Loofah Soap
I can’t get over how much easy homemade loofah looks like and smells like fall. It’s a seriously awesome DIY soap!
It’s a great soap recipe that suds up really well, but has the scrubby exfoliating effect because of the loofah. And it’s all sorts of pumpkin-ey, so it makes a great bar of soap to put out around fall and Thanksgiving — or even as a gift for Christmas.
It’s so easy, too, I think this style is one of my favorite soap making recipes. So. Easy.

How to Make Pumpkin Spice and Honey Loofah Soap
Cut your loofah into 1.5” slices and set aside.
Add 18 cubes of soap base to a microwave safe bowl or measuring cup. Add frankincense essential oil, holiday season essential oil and jojoba oil. Melt in microwave for 30 seconds. Stir and repeat until completely melted.
Spray mold with a small amount of rubbing alcohol.
Add just enough soap mix to cover the bottom of the mold. Gently press a loofah slice into each mold. Allow to harden for 15-20 minutes .
Then, pour the rest of the soap mixture into soap mold until it just covers the top of the loofah.
Allow to harden overnight. Remove carefully and store in an airtight container or Ziploc bag. This loofah soap is a fantastic for exfoliating, cleaning and moisturizing your skin!
