2. Cinnamon Cocoa Melt & Pour Soap

Making soap for the first time isn’t difficult and this quick and easy beginner soap recipe comes with a fun twist. There are four common methods you can use to make soap: melt and pour, cold process, hot process, and rebatching. This project from The Soap Queen uses the  melt and pour process so is not soap from scratch but instead uses a pre-made soap base which is then simply melted and molded.
