How to make an apple pie essential oil blend plus an apple pie soap recipe.  Apple pie spice isn't as common as pumpkin spice, but it's a wonderful fall blend to use in fall soap recipes.


Apple spice is the middle child of the fall scents.  Everyone goes nuts for pumpkin spice and all things pumpkin, and apple spice is just the afterthought.


Maybe with Starbucks new apple drink that will change.





While I like pumpkin and pumpkin spice, I also like apples and apple spice.  Give me an apple crisp over pumpkin any day.


This was originally going to be an apple pie soap recipe, but I also wanted to share several different apple pie essential oil blend recipes that you can use.


You can use one of these essential oil blends in a diffuser, perfume, or melt and pour soap recipes using essential oils.  


Apple Pie Soap Recipe


Apple spice and pumpkin spice are very similar.  You can learn how to make a pumpkin spice essential oil blend here.  Or try one of these best fall essential oil blends.


You can use this apple pie essential oil blend in fall soap recipes and in other recipes.  Try it in one of these fall recipes:




 


What's the Difference Between Pumpkin Spice and Apple Spice?


Pumpkin pie spice and apple pie spice are very similar.  They both typically have cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice.  Pumpkin spice sometimes has cardamom.


Apple spice, however, also has cloves.  It gives it a different scent and changes the profile.


Of course, each family has their own recipe and preference.  That's why I included so many apple pie essential oil blend recipes so you can make your favorite version.


Can You Get Apple Essential Oil?


No, unfortunately there is not an apple essential oil.  There is an apple fragrance oil that you can use to get an apple scent.


From my research, there is an essential oil blend that does smell like apples.  It's 6 drops of Jade Lemon essential oil and 3 drops of Davana essential oil.  


Jade lemon essential oil has a milder scent than regular lemon, so I don't believe that you can use lemon essential oil.  It's said to smell more like lemongrass, so that my be a good substitute.  


I don't have either oil in stock, so I can't say if it does smell like apples or not.  However, if you have them and try it, please let me know!





Can I Mix Different Essential Oils Together?


Yes, you can mix oils to create custom blends, including an apple pie essential oil blend.  There is a science behind blending.


Each essential oil has a blending factor.  The lower the number, the stronger the oil and the less you will use to create a blend.  


You can use an essential oil blending factor worksheet to help you create custom blends.  You can modify your blends to suit your needs, but this is a great starting point.  


The worksheets have a place for the math and for notes.  I recommend keeping them in your essential oil binder to reference later.  


I use empty 5 ml glass bottles to make my blends in.  These hold 100 drops, so you can make a smaller amount.  Don't forget to use blank labels to label your blends!

How Much Essential Oil Do You Add to Melt and Pour Soap?


When making melt and pour soap recipes using essential oils, you can use 0.25 ounces of essential oils per pound of soap.  


For fall soap recipes with cinnamon and ginger, I tend to go lower.  Therefore, I will only use 0.25 ounces of essential oils  with 1.5 pounds of soap to make this apple pie soap recipe.





Fall Soap Recipes Ingredients


To make apple pie melt and pour soap recipes using essential oils, you will need:



How Do You Make Apple Pie Soap?


Step #1


Cut the goat's milk soap into 1 inch cubes and divide between the two glass measuring cups.  Microwave one batch on high in 30 second intervals until melted.  Stir at each interval.  Be careful not to overheat or boil the soap.


Step #2


Add the red mica until you reach the desired color.  Add 0.125 ounces of apple pie essential oil blend and stir well.  Pour the soap into the mold and spray the top with rubbing alcohol.  Let sit for 20 minutes.





Step #3


Melt the other half of the soap following the same directions.  Let the soap cool for a few minutes.  Add the cinnamon and 0.125 ounces of essential oils.  Stir well.  Let the soap cool until a skin forms on top.  Then stir to melt and skin and pour the soap into the mold on top of the other soap.





Step #4


Use a wood craft stock to poke around in the soap until the soap starts to harden.  This creates texture on top.  Spray with rubbing alcohol and let cook for 4 hours.





Step #5


Remove the fall soap recipes from the mold and cut into 4 bars of soap.





Your melt and pour soap recipes using essential oils is ready to use right away.  


Note that cinnamon can be irritating for some people.  I recommend using this apple pie soap recipe as a hand soap.  You can also omit the soap or substitute the cinnamon for poppy seeds or even oatmeal for texture.
