Hand Milled Soap Recipe for Sensitive Skin: Simplest Recipe in the Universe

Okay, you know how I always say that melt-and-pour soap recipes are the easiest to make? Do you want to hear about one that is even easier - the simplest, most eco-friendly, zero-waste recipe?

Fine, you talked me into it! Put all your problems aside, all the bad things that happened today, and come make some soap with me!

Hand Milled Soap Recipe

Tiny Hint – It actually clears your mind and reduces stress if you cook or make something. You become so focused on the process that all the thoughts in your head go ‘poof’ like a cloud of steam.

OK ! Here's What You Will Need For This Hand Milled Soap Recipe

  • All the leftover soap that you can find – perhaps some bits and pieces left from your previous recipes, perhaps some hotel soap
  • Glass bowl
  • Cheese grater
  • Coconut milk- Coconut milk is great for arthritis because it contains antioxidants, which control free radicals and decreases the risk of joint inflammation. 

It’s a great moisturizer for dehydrated skin in winter, and a great help against sunburn in the summer – the fats in the milk help reduce redness. 

It helps with skin elasticity due to its copper and vitamin C content. It’s also great for your blood vessels, preventing wrinkles, saggy skin, and age spots.

It is especially good for sensitive skin because it can soothe the symptoms of psoriasis, dermatitis and eczema, and it also removes harmful bacteria from your skin.


  • Argan Oil – It helps with acne and has been proven to reduce sebum levels in individuals with oily skin! It’s also great for stretchmarks (just rub the bar of soap over the affected areas – vitamin A and E give elasticity). 

It helps to soothe your skin after razor bumps and burns – which, let’s face it, happens to all of us mortals who use a sharp object on our delicate skin.

It is also great for your bikini line!  

I also highly recommend it for all who have dry cracking skin on your feet and heels – just rub the soap over it and let it set for a while, then wash it off.

Argan Oil
  • Molds – I will use a simple butter tray, but you can use anything you find at home!

We won’t be using any essential oils or other additives in this Hand Milled Soap recipe because it’s a basic, simple recipe for sensitive skin. Sensitive skin gets irritated quickly, so essential oils would do more harm than good. 

This soap works great with skin prone to dryness, or oily skin, skin with eczema, rashes, psoriasis, dermatitis, sunburn…basically, if you have sensitive skin, it will help you!

A Fast And Fun Way To Make Hand Milled Soap

  • Your 1st Step :– Take a moment of quiet for yourself, to relieve your mind of stress and thought. Focus on the tiny spot in-between your eyes, and breathe in. Breathe in happy feelings. Breathe out the negative feelings. Feeling good? Okay, next step!
  • Your 2nd Step :– Grate the soap you have into a bowl. I grated just enough soap to fill out one butter tray, but you can do more or less, it’s your call.
  • Your 3rd Step :– Add 1/3 cup of coconut milk, or just enough to cover all the grated flakes.
step-3 Add coconut milk
  • Your 4th Step :– Place the bowl over medium heat, and stir slowly. Use the wooden spoon, and be careful – old soap flakes tend to stick to the bottom.
step 4-Place bowl on heat
  • Your 5th Step :– Your most important step of the Hand Milled Soap recipe. Now add in your Argan Oil. I used 6 drops of it for my butter tray, but you may use more if you have more soap mixture, or vice versa. Mix everything together.
step 5- add Argan Oil

Your 6th Step :–  Pour the mixture into the molds you chose, and let it cure for at least 4 weeks!

Fantastic! Now, take a breather. You’ve got your fantastic soap ready, your stress is gone, and you are simply awesome.
