Homemade Glowing Ghost Poop Soap

We made these glow-in-the-dark soaps this year for Halloween, and everybody got a good laugh out of them. They are such fun not only to make but also to use!

Psst… have you read my soap making guide yet?! I included how to get started, plus some of my tips and tricks – learned from trial and error. 


Tips for Making Glowing Soap at Home

Creating soap with a melt and pour soap base is straightforward and affordable. You literally pop it into the microwave until melted and pour it into a mold to set.

While this is a perfect soap-making recipe for beginners, these tips and tricks will make creating soaps at home a bit easier.

Dissolve powdered colorants in isopropyl alcohol before adding to melted soap base.

To do this, mix a tiny amount of isopropyl alcohol into the powdered colorant you plan to use in a separate cup. A little will go a long way. Mix until all the powder is blended into a liquid, and then add to your soap base. This will help you avoid creating bubbles in your soap as you stir in your powders, and as a bonus, the alcohol will dissolve any bubbles that may happen as you stir the soap base.

Note about Glow Powder: Several colors and brands are available online, but we recommend ordering the Night Glow Powder from TKB Trading. This is because theirs are approved for use in soap specifically. Other companies say theirs is safe but aren’t certified.

When picking out a melted soap base buy clear.

A clear soap base can be used for a variety of different projects. However, if you end up having a project where you need a white soap base, it is a lot more affordable to have a white mica powder on hand…which a white melt-and-pour soap is just a clear-based soap with white mica powder. This will save you money in your soap-making journey.

Always spray your silicone molds with isopropyl alcohol prior to use.

Alcohol helps eliminate any bubbles that may appear in your soap which will help define the details. For a beautiful looking soap, this is a must.

  5. Add green apple scent and mix well. Carefully soap mixture into mold. Spray top of soap to prevent bubbles from forming. Allow to harden at least 2-4 hours. Make sure there are no ripples when you blow on it. Carefully “pop” the soaps from the mold. Store in an airtight container until ready to use.
