Learn how to make this easy DIY Ginger White Tea Cocoa Butter Soap with just 3 simple ingredients!
During this past year, I discovered how easy and rewarding it is to make my own skin care products. When I was talking with my sister months ago, she mentioned that she had a favorite lotion that had white tea and ginger, and so when I was at Trader Joe’s a few weeks after our conversation and stumbled upon Organic Ginger Pear White Tea, I decided that I had to buy a box and see what I could make with it. That box of tea has been sitting in my bedroom waiting for months, but I finally got around to making my first bath and body product with it.
It smells so heavenly…and after reading about the benefits of both white tea and ginger essential oils, I couldn’t wait to start using it!

This soap couldn’t be easier to make because it uses a melt and pour soap base (in other words, you can skip the complicated part of soap making and simply enjoy the process of making your own, beautiful, fragrant soaps).
Homemade soaps make amazing gifts! So if you’re looking for a last-minute holiday gift or you simply want something to soothe your dry winter skin, then this soap is a perfect project. With just a few minutes of work, you can make your own unique soap.

I bet this smells heavenly! I haven’t made a huge amount of DIY skincare but I want to. Part of the reason is I’m slowly creating a collection of ingredients. I like that your recipe uses a pre-made soap base. I definitely wouldn’t consider making my own soap at this point.
