What is Turmeric Soap Good For?


There are several turmeric soap benefits for skin.  Using a turmeric bar soap recipe may have the following benefits:

Using a soap dish will also allow the soap to dry between uses and extend the life of your soap.

Turmeric Soap Recipe Melt and Pour Tips and Variations


Here are some tips and other variations to customize your turmeric soap DIY recipe:


  • Use a quality melt and pour soap base.  I use Crafty Bubbles white soap base, but you can also use Stephenson melt and pour soap.
  • Melt your soap in a double boiler or in the microwave.  If you use the microwave, heat in 30 second bursts and don't let it boil.  If it gets too hot, the soap can get rubbery.
  • I added the turmeric directly to my melted soap base.  You can also mix the turmeric with a little bit of rubbing alcohol or glycerin to get the clumps out.
  • Try adding 1/2 tablespoon turmeric and 1/2 tablespoon charcoal for a turmeric charcoal soap.
  • You can also use turmeric essential oil for more turmeric soap benefits for skin.
  • Spray the tops of the soap with rubbing alcohol after you pour it.  This gets rid of air bubbles for a smoother bar of soap.
