Either you buy your favorite natural bar soap from a spa shop or you make one by yourself you can easily turned it to a liquid form. Making natural lye soap is relatively easy process that I have described in my post how to make soap at home. Alternatively you can buy natural castile bar soap and use it to make liquid soap.

Step 1: Chose Your Favourite Natural Bar Soap

It could be a fully cured soap that you have made either by cold or hot process. It could be a nice, natural bar soap bought from you proffered spa shop. Then weigh the bar and weigh filtered or distilled water equal to four (4) times the weight of the soap bar.

Step 2: Grate the Soap

Grate the bar with a standard kitchen grater and put it in a saucepan. Add the water and let it boil on the stove.

Step 3: Let It Cook

Leave it to boil for 5-10 min on low heat. Stir occasionally to allow the grated soap to completely dissolve. It is important to leave it cook this time in order not to separate later.

Step 4: Pour Into a Bottle

Remove the soap from the heat and let it cool down. Pour it into bottles and leave it to mature for 24h.

Step 5: Final Touches

If the soap is too liquid go back to step3 and add more soap. I believe that it will not be too liquid if you have measured properly the soap and the water.

If the soap is too hard / dense add some hot water and mix well. let it stay for another 24h.

Congratulations. You have nice homemade soap.

    Hi Tri Bayu, It stays homogeneous. doesn't sediment at all if you follow the instructions. I made quantity for not more than a month and for this period it doesn't change. The soap is quite stable.

    It works quite well. It is not the same as the real liquid soap but quite close and also allows you to add some essential oils after cooling. I personally use only this liquid soap made from my own homemade bar soap.
