Do you have a favorite soap that you love to use every day in the shower? In recent years are you trying to buy soaps that have more natural ingredients? Natural soaps tend to be much more beneficial to your skin, and rather than strip your skin of the natural oils; they help to promote balance and level out the pH of your skin.

One of the best things about DIY soap so that you know exactly what is going in the soap. You don’t have to worry about harsh chemicals. When making DIY Kratom soap, you can have fun with the different essential oils you use and other botanical ingredients.

Understanding Where Kratom Comes From

Kratom is a substance that results from a careful cultivation and refining process. The leaves used for this process come from the mitragyna speciosa tree that is native to Southeast Asian rainforests. If you want to try out Kratom, DIY is a great way to introduce yourself to its remarkable properties.

While many cultures worldwide claim to benefit from Kratom, the FDA disagrees with these statements and has taken a strong stance against Kratom. For this reason, you can only purchase Kratom if it is for research purposes. When using Kratom, make sure that you evaluate the product for yourself.

Why Put Kratom In Your DIY Soap?

If you wonder why someone would put Kratom in DIY soap, you have to look at Kratom’s active compounds. These compounds can elevate the soap’s therapeutic effects. If you are already using botanicals and medicinal herbs in your DIY soap, add Kratom powder to the mix. The results can be synergistic.

Kratom soap can be both nourishing and moisturizing, delivering concentrated nutrients to your skin that it craves. If used correctly, your skin will be softer and more supple. These soaps can also help rid your skin of blemishes both on your face and other areas like your back and chest. Most blemishes are a result of an imbalance of hormones and bodily chemicals. When your glands produce sebum, it can clog your pores, which can lead to defects. If you use a soap that has been correctly blended using the best ingredients, it can result in more clean and clear skin while also helping to balance out sebum and oil production.

Creating The Soap

Whether you are an expert soap craftsperson or just starting to get into it, making soaps can be both cathartic and rewarding. By making your own soap, you take control of your body and what goes on it. There is no need to stress if it is not right the first time. There are endless possibilities when it comes to customizations and combinations of DIY soap.

Below is a great, simple recipe for a glycerin-based soap that is going to help you get the most out of Kratom products while also providing you with a thorough clean:

Ingredient List

Melt and pour glycerin (2lbs)
Olive or coconut oil (1 cup)
Premium Kratom (6oz)
Your favorite dried flowers or essential oils

Depending on the type of oil you use, the effects it could have on your skin will be very different. Soap bases like melt and pour glycerin already have oil within, so you may only need to use half the oil amount. The consistency of the soap will change based on the amount of each ingredient you add.

Make sure to set up an appropriate workspace not to ruin any of your furniture, or clothing. You will want to use rubber gloves to handle the hot pots of glycerin. If you have children or pets, make sure they are in another room during the process so that everyone stays safe.

The Process

Start by melting your glycerin. You can do this over the stove using either a double boiler or pot.
Prepare your molds for the soap. Usually, there are silicon ones shaped in various fun objects that you choose from. If you spray them with alcohol, it can help prevent bubbling once you pour in your mix.
Add your olive oil or coconut oil to the pot of melted glycerin. Make sure to stir thoroughly so it is spread evenly.
Take the pan off the stove and add your active compounds. You can add Kratom and essential oils together and make sure to add it slowly. Any dried plants should be added last.
You can now pour your mixture into the already prepared molds. Make sure to keep stirring as you are filling the molds. After the molds are full, you can place your dried flowers and herbs on top. Lastly, add a few sprays of alcohol to the top.
The soap must now cure somewhere cold. A fridge is sometimes a good option. Make sure that you let it sit for at least 24 hours undisturbed.

High-Quality Kratom Makes Better Soap

With your fresh Kratom soap popped out of the mold, you can now enjoy all the benefits it has to offer. When making this soap, make sure to always choose premium Kratom to guarantee there are no added contaminants.
