This DIY loofah soap with goat milk, dried chamomile, fresh cinnamon, and clove bud essential oil is aromatic without being overwhelming. Perfect for a thoughtful holiday gift!
This loofah soap is great any time of year, but the chamomile, cinnamon, and clove bud remind me of Autumn. The aroma is super inviting and comforting.
I have a confession to make – I haven’t delved into the world of soap making yet! I know, I know. It really doesn’t make any sense. After baby #2 makes his or her appearance, I’ll probably dip my feet in.
My point is, I know nothing about making soap. And while I’m interested in learning the cold press method, the melt and pour bases will have to do for now.
This is the perfect afternoon craft for someone looking to get into soapmaking. You don’t have to know anything about soap, seriously! Honestly, this is even easier than most of my salve recipes.
It’s no secret that I love chamomile. It’s hypoallergenic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-fungal. Plus, it’s beautiful and it smells great.
Goat’s milk is high in vitamin A, which helps repair damaged skin tissue. Additionally, the lactic acid helps remove dead skin cells, leaving you nice and soft.
Clove bud is commonly used topically on small wounds and fungal infections, and the aroma is said to keep colds at bay and ease respiratory issues. No wonder it’s a favorite fragrance during the flu season!

One day, wouldn’t it be nice to grow your own loofah, have fresh goat’s milk on hand, and dry your own chamomile? If, like me, you’re not there yet, these are the products I bought to make my loofah soap:
- Goat Milk Melt and Pour Soap Base
- Loofah Sponge
- Silicone Tray
- Dried Chamomile
- 10-20 drops of Clove Bud Essential Oil
- 10-20 drops of Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil
- Optional: A pinch of Cinnamon on top
1. Melt The Goat Milk Soap Base
In a double boiler, melt the goat milk soap base. If you buy the base that I recommended above, the entire container will make about 8 loofah sponges. I used half to make four.
2. Cut The Loofah Sponge
Put them in the silicone mold tray.
3. Add Essential Oils To Soap Base
Once the soap base is fully melted, allow it to cool for about 30 seconds, then stir in the cinnamon bark and clove bud essential oils.
4. Pour The Soap Base Over The Loofah Sponges
Pour the goat milk soap base into the silicone tray, over the loofah sponges.
5. Add Dried Chamomile To The Top of The Soap
Do this before the soap hardens. You can also add a pinch of cinnamon if you like!
And there you have it! Your goat milk chamomile loofah soap is done! It smells heavenly, and it leaves your skin super soft and refreshed.
