Rainbow Popsicle Soap Recipe

  • Author: Ashley at Frugal Coupon Living


  • Cocoa butter block soap
  • Pink, orange, green, blue, and purple food coloring
  • Soap scent (we used cucumber melon, also consider an Essential Oil* like Lavender)
  • Small spray bottle of rubbing alcohol
  • Popsicle mold (dollar store)
  • Wide craft sticks
  • Small sauce pot
  • 5 empty clean soup cans
  • Knife


  1. Cut your soap block into about 10 large ice cube size pieces.
  2. Place 2 soap cubes in each tin can.
  3. Fill your pot about 1/4 way with water and bring to a boil on your stove.
  4. Place one can in the boiling water to act as a double boiler.
  5. Stir occasionally for about 5 minutes until melted.
  6. Add in 1 very small drop of your pink food coloring and 1/8 teaspoon of your soap scent (any more food coloring will stain your hands when using).
  7. Spray a very small amount of a non stick cooking spray inside your molds.
  8. Pour your pink melted soap 1/5 way up in your Popsicle mold, spray once with alcohol to prevent air bubbles.
  9. Freeze for 5 minutes, then stick Popsicle stick into the center.
  10. While your soap is in the freezer, place your next tin can with 2 soap cubes into the boiling water.
  11. Add 1 very small drop of orange food coloring and 1/8 teaspoon soap scent, stir occasionally for 5 minutes.
  12. Once melted, pour over your pink soap another 1/5 way and spray with alcohol.
  13. Freeze for 5 minutes.
  14. Repeat steps 4-6 with each color.
  15. Once hardened, stick a Popsicle stick into each side of the soap to loosen, then pull out.
  16. Please supervise children around soap and while using soap as this smells and looks yummy but is still soap!
