You will need:-

  • Mould – I used a measuring cups – available from any baking shop
  • 3ml Fragrance Oil – I used Cucumber & Bergamot
  • No Colour
  • 1000g Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 500g Citric acid
  • 40ml Coconut oil
  • water – the amount you need will depend on the amount of moisture in the air. Less is more so add it slowly
  • Bowl, scale, spoon, pipette and a fly press(optional)


To Make:-

  • Add dry ingredients to your bowl and mix
  • Add melted coconut oil into fragrance oil, and then add to dry mix
  • Mix until squeezed mix retains shape – a little like moist beach sand
  • Add a little water to assist
  • Using the 2 measuring cups, scoop the mixture and overfill
  • Press cups together and clean join and place under the fly press plate. Pull the lever down hard but not too hard so as to break the cups
  • Leave to stand for 30 – 60 minutes
  • Gently remove mould and release – tap with a spoon to help release if they stick

Riverlea Soap


  1. Thank you for this tutorial. Very straight forward and precise. So one doesn't need witch hazel to spray! Good!

  2. I have never used it and cannt quite see the need for it. Maybe I need to do some research.
