This recipe requires a 30-day wait for the soap to fully cure, but trust me when I tell you that it will be worth every second of anticipation.

So, grab your apron, roll up your sleeves, and get ready to make a soap that will leave you feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and maybe even a little younger, all while having fun along the way!


Sea Moss Gel Soap Recipe

Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 1 day
Total: 31 days
Yield: Dependent on size molds used (about 3 cups)



2 Cups + 2 Tbsp Organic Coconut Oil


2 Tbsp Sea Moss Oil


3 Tbsp Maju Purple Sea Moss Gel


4 oz Sodium Hydroxide Granules


1 Cup filtered water


Essential Oils (optional)


Other Helpful Tools:

Soap Molds (available on Amazon)



Step 1: Slowly heat the 2 cups plus two tablespoons of coconut oil in a pot until fully melted.


Step 2: Stir in two tablespoons of sea moss oil.


Step 3: Add in your 3 tablespoons of sea moss gel, mix well leaving on low heat while you complete step four.


Step 4: *This step should be done outside for safety reasons.* In a large bowl, carefully combine one cup of water and four ounces of sodium hydroxide granules. Stir this carefully, avoiding any contact with the skin. Avoid inhaling the fumes. 


Step 5: Once the water and sodium hydroxide mixture cools, carefully carry it back inside where the pot of oils is sitting under low heat.


Step 6: Slowly pour the water and sodium hydroxide mixture into the pot a little at a time while stirring the mixture constantly.


Step 7: Keep stirring under low heat until the mixture reaches a “trace” consistency. You should see soap residue leaving a trail when drizzled across itself with your mixing spoon. 


Step 8: Once you notice the trace pattern, quickly remove from heat.


Step 9: Optional step – Add 20-30 drops of your favorite essential oils. We love Tea Tree, Lavender, Peppermint, and Citrus like Orange or Lemon for a fresh smell and cooling sensation. Stir well until fully combined.


Step 10: Once your essential oils have been fully combined in the mixture, quickly but carefully pour your soap mixture into the molds to cool.


Step 11: Optional step – place molds in the refrigerator for a quicker cooling time.


Step 12: The next day, take the molds out of the refrigerator and pop the bars of soap out.


Step 13: Cure your soap – Store your soap in an area with good ventilation and away from heat or direct sunlight for at least one month.


Step 14: Once your soap has cured for 30 days, it’s ready to go! Enjoy!
