Learn how to make salt bars by combining sea salt and cold process soap!

Why on earth would we want to make a salt bar?

There are many reasons!

  • Sea salt is purifying, drawing and acts as an astringent. It is great, especially, for acne. It gets into pores, killing bacteria and cleansing cells. If you live by the ocean, you’ve known that salt water from the ocean is wonderful for helping with acne.
  • Salt bars last FOREVER in the shower. In my experience, they last longer than regular bar soap. This is a great selling point. Customers will love these soaps that last a long time in their shower.
  • Salt bars are hard! Salt bars are great for individual cavity molds that you can’t usually use with your regular recipe. The soap gets hard fast and will pop right out. So if you have cute decorative molds that don’t work well with your regular cold process soap recipe, try using them with a salt bar recipe.
  • Salt bars are inexpensive to make. Salt bars contain mostly coconut oil and sea salt, both of which are not that expensive. Coconut oil is one of the cheaper oils to make soap with. You can purchase sea salt in bulk from many suppliers.
  • They are easily marketed as spa type or facial bars of soap. Customer love to hear about the benefits of sea salt and will pay more money for these special bars of soap.

This guide features direction on making salt bars, creating your own formulas and includes recipes to get you started.

    I love Amanda and Benjamin’s books. I have learned so much about soap making from their resources and this salt bar book is no different. I use if often for inspiration and as a reference. It is written in an easy to read manner with great explanations of the process. Thank you Amanda and Benjamin for sharing your knowledge and passion with us.

    I love this book, it’s great and use it very often 🙂
    I have and love all the books of Amanda and Benjamin, because they are all written in a very easy to understand language, and even if you are new to the soap making, after reading the book you can make your own lovely salt bars.
    What I really appriciate of the books, is that all contain so many different recipes and explainations, why they are different or what they are good for.
    I would highly reccoment the book and the e-classes, to all soap makers.

  6. Jayne Jordan

    The hardest part about this ebook is picking which recipe to start with! I love how the recipes are all scented with essential oils. So far I’ve made the Rose Clay and Argan Spa Bar, Lavender Dreams Spa Bar, and the Charcoal and Tea Tree Spa Bar. But don’t ask me to pick a favorite because I like them all!

  7. Kelly Quinney

    I am brand new to salt bars but am becoming a HUGE fan! I didn’t have Amanda’s book when I created my first recipe, and while they turned out great and people like them, I am so excited to try the recipes in this book and make an even better bar now that I gained all the knowledge she shared in this amazing book! I will be doing this tomorrow and I can’t wait to see the results! Thanks Amanda for sharing all your research with us and helping us to make a better product!

    I purchased this book in September, 2017. Very informative book. Lots of good ideas for making salt bars. Glad I added it to my soap making library. Would definitely recommend.

  9. Laura

    I think I own all the Aaron’s recipe books :). I love printing and binding them and pulling them out when I’m wanting to try another new recipe. I especially love the Charcoal & Tea Tree Sea Salt recipe w/Peppermint Essential Oil. It’s one of my customers top picks too! I love the wealth of Essential Oil blend ideas in their books too, especially when I had no clue where to begin!

  10. Kelly G (verified owner)

    I love the Making Salt Bars book. The recipes are easy to follow and the essential oil combinations are lovely. You won’t regret this purchase.

  11. Shirley

    I love salt bars and this is the only book dedicated to salt bars. I’m glad I purchased this and have almost all of Amanda’s books.

  12. Kasia (verified owner)

    The best ebook on salt bars I could find.
    Easy to understand and packed with solid information.
    It inspired me to make and use these beautiful soapy creations 🙂

  13. Robin Avrett

    Love all the recipes in this book. The essential oil combinations are great. The java and spearmint scrub is a favorite of all my friends. Amanda writes great books and the recipes are superb.

  14. GOLDENGREENSOAPS

    We love this book. Its the basis for our spa line and our customers love the creations. We have bought most of the books on here and I will say there is not a bad one among them!

  15. Marilou

    Pleased to add this book to my collection. Very informative and the recipes are wonderful. I have made several and each one has turned out great! Family members are enjoying the long lasting bar and the designs from the molds give bars character.

  16. Charlene Haymond

    I love your e-books. You have so much knowledge and truly appreciate you sharing and help fellow soap makers. Thank you!

  17. Michaux Downing

    Love your E-Books!!! The recipes are concise and information relevant. The essential oil blends, lovely! Thank you for assembling such a bounty of information. My first purchase was your men’s skin care book. It is equally helpful. Then got the book bundle. I am excited most excited about the salt bars, as salt is a passion of mine!

  18. Kerry Meier (verified owner)

    I have made soap for many years. This is the first book I have seen that talks about salt bars. I made my first salt bar from the book 6 weeks ago. I am patiently waiting to see how they turn out because I hear a long cure is better. They look beautiful. I can’t wait to try some more recipes.Thank you for the recipes in this book and your other books. I use them frequently.

  19. sylvia shattler (verified owner)

    I bought this e-book to learn the right technique for making salt bars. I previously made salt bars and ended up throwing them out because I was not happy with the outcome. So happy with this purchase, I acquired the proper techniques for salt bars. At first I was a little hesitant about such a high percentage of coconut oil in a soap bar. I decided to try the salt bar with shea butter. After patiently waiting 5 weeks for the cure, I can honestly say I am not disappointed. Absolutely love love these bars. For those of you who are skeptic about making salt bars, this e-book will convince you otherwise. Highly recommend for anyone wanting a spa experience.

  20. Carol S (verified owner)

    I’ve never heard of a salt bar before Amanda introduced me to them. This book is very informative and has easy to follow directions for making the perfect salt bar. My customers love them!

  21. Celeste Gennarakis (verified owner)

    My soap-making journey started with Lovin Soap. I have purchased quite a few eBooks including Making Salt Bars and have learnt so much and it gave me the confidence to try many different types of soaps. This book is really wonderful with beautiful recipes and the soap is amazing! A great soap to add to the inventory!

  22. Emma Jane Molloy (verified owner)

    Absolutely love all Amanda’s books. I’ve made every single bar in this book since getting it and made some modified ones too, using the easy to understand comprehensive information obtained from the book. Perfect for the seasoned soaper, and people just dipping their toes in soap making for the first time. Having three teenagers, our favourite family soap from this book is the charcoal and tea tree spa bar – I always end up making extra for my two nieces too!

  23. Jill Perander

    I’ve made one recipe even though I got the book in 2016. Looking forward to making more and looking forward to the mini book!

  24. Jacqui Mark

    This was the first of Amanda’s books that I bought and now I have them all! Easy to follow recipes that are palm oil free and full of natural ingredients. The Java Coffee Bar is my favourite! I recommend this for all levels of soap making experience.

  25. Murielle (verified owner)

    I love this book!! All recipes are easy to make, with good explanations. My skin loves salt bars 🙂
    I totally recommend this book!!

  26. Elizabeth Harrington (verified owner)

    I just love this book! Amanda makes learning how to make salt bars easy and fun… even if you haven’t made soap in the past. Giving a quick intro and history into the soap making process, Amanda then moves on to what a salt bar is and why we would want to make/use one. She’ll teach you the basics of making salt bars as well as more advanced techniques with instructions and pictures for each step. Between the recipes that are in this book along with the explanation of choosing different base oils, salts, fragrances and colorants your possibilities are endless. My customers love these salt bars!

  35. Gail Dulgar (verified owner)

    I bought the Salt-Bar book last spring. and I made both the triple-butter and the Argan and Rose Clay Soaps in the spring. I was kind of turned off by the texture of the soap initially, (the salt settled to the bottom of the bars – oops my bad) but after a second go at them and a full 8 weeks cure, they turned into lovely bars.. Now I have friends and family asking when I will make them again, as they want more!

    I’m looking a making another couple of the recipes this spring.. Need to keep surprising them with something new!

  36. Kathleen Butterworth

    Purchased this book and so happy I added it to my collection. I haven’t tried a recipe I didn’t love. Salt bars are long lasting and my skin loves salt bar soap.

  37. Ingrid (verified owner)

    Great comprehensive information on making salt bars. Great recipes. Would definitely recommend.
