How to Make Soap on a Rope

These are a fun little soap to make that is just different enough to be an unusual gift. If you would like to make your own soap on a rope, read on for the tutorial instructions:

Notes:

• This is the Soap Mold used in this tutorial. It works very well but any soap mold tall enough to give room for the rope will work.

• I list paracord or cotton rope as the rope portion of this soap on a rope. paracord is the superior product as it does not fray as easily as cotton rope. The colors will not run into your lighter colored soaps.

• Be sure to use soap colorant (soap dye) and not food coloring when making soaps.

• You can add more or less soap dye to make the colors deeper or pale.

• You can add more essential oils for a stronger scent.

Tip: I like to allow my soap to harden so I keep them unwrapped on a shelf in the linen closet. The closet smells pretty good too! The scent will dissipate this way, so add more essential oil if you plan to store your soap open on wire racks (shelving).

Soap on a Rope Instructions:

Step 1: Measure, cut, knot and trim your paracord. You should have about a ¼ inch of room from the bottom of the mold and the amount of cording you want to show form the top is totally up to you. For the mold used in this tutorial, paracord was cut into 8″ pieces which allowed room for the knot, room at the bottom and about 3” of cord showing from the top of the soap.

Homemade Bug Repellent Bars

One of my blog’s most visited summertime posts is this terrific Best Essential Oil Mosquito and Bug Repellent Recipes post. I (finally) decided (three years later!) to add a homemade insect repellent bar “recipe”. You can wash with this and have some protection against summertime mosquitoes and bugs even if you forget to apply a homemade bug spray.

Note: (and big disclaimer) not all bug repellents (sprays, bars, wipes) commercial or homemade work for everyone. What works for me may not work for thee, and vice versa. Even if you use this bug repellent bar and find it helps ward off those flying pests for you, you are still going to be better off using it as a first layer defense, and continue to use a homemade bug spray when those buggers are biting.

Note: (and a second big disclaimer) This Homemade Bug Repellent Bars recipe should be safe for children. However, I cannot guarantee anything so your best bet is to consult your child’s pediatrician and ask for medical advice.

With that in mind, let’s make some bug repellent bars!

• 15 drops Citronella Essential Oil
• 10 drops Clove Essential Oil
• 10 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil
• 10 drops Rosemary Essential Oil

You may want to increase your essential oil drops by up to 5 more (so 15 instead of 10, 20 instead of 15). A lot of this is personalized by reactions to oils, and the reaction (good and bad) to the scent of the oils.

I recommend storing in a plastic or metal container with a lid. We keep ours in the fridge until we are ready to use them. They will get soft if kept in warm temperatures for an extended period of time!
