When my print book, Easy Homemade Melt & Pour Soaps, came out, I received a bunch of questions about where to find the different soap molds featured in the projects.

To help you quickly find the mold you’re looking for, I’ve put together this list of various ones used in the book. I hope you find it helpful!

Silly Pops Ellipse Silicone Molds

These oval silicone molds by Silly Pops are terrific for both melt & pour and cold process soap. I use them all them time for projects. They unmold beautifully and have held up really well after tons of use!

Projects shown are: Sunflower Sunshine Bars, Thyme Facial Soap, and Jojoba Sage Shampoo & Body Bars from my melt and pour print book.

PS: Silly Pops also has a rectangle variation of the mold – as shown on page 40 (Rosemary Mint Shampoo Bars) in the Easy Homemade Melt & Pour Soaps book.

This basic square silicone mold has four 4-ounce square cavities. It’s the perfect size for simple infused soaps and shower scrubby bars. Line the bottom with bubble wrap for the honeycomb texture shown.

Small Silicone Loaf Mold

A mini loaf mold is indispensable for making small sized batches of melt and pour, and especially layers and swirls. This mold will make 4 bars of soap and is the perfect size for home hobbyists.

Photos shown are from my print book, Easy Homemade Melt & Pour Soaps: (L) Diagonals Technique Instructions and (R) Spring Flowers Soap.

shell shaped soaps and mermaid tail shaped soaps

Mini Sea Shells and Mermaid Tails

Individual fondant molds are normally used for cake-decorating purposes, but also make terrific melt and pour soap accents or mini soaps.

The Anyana sea shells fondant mold set I used for the book contained 7 individual types of shell designs. It looks like they’re no longer available, but this 5 Shell Set looks pretty identical. They can be used to make individual guest soaps, or I use them as toppers for the Easy Beach Bars project in my Easy Homemade Melt & Pour Soaps book.

The shimmery mermaid tail soaps can be made and used as they are, or could also be used as toppers for ocean-themed soap bars.

Round & Square Silicone Mooncake Molds

I love these YGEOMER silicone soap molds for testing out new colorant and essential oil blend ideas! They’re a cute little size that fits right in your hand.

They were used to create all of the soaps in the photo gallery of natural colorants + melt and pour soap, which spans pages 155 to 160 in the book.

These molds can also be used to make lotion bars, such as Dandelion Lotion Bars and Herbal Intensive Lotion Bars.

rose shaped soaps and mini flower shaped soaps

Rose Silicone Mold & Mini Flower Cakes Mold

The rose facial soaps on the left were made with a six-cavity rose-shaped silicone mold. I bought my Celebrate It brand mold at a local Michaels craft store, but have also seen this mold on Amazon.

The herbal infused soap embeds on the right were made using a Sunny Side Up Bakery mini flower cakes mold that I purchased at my local Hobby Lobby store.

bar of soap with nubby texture, bars of folded leaf shaped soaps

Massage Bar Mold & Folded Leaf Mold

Etsy is a great place to find unique molds. The massage bar mold for the Mocha Mint Massage Bars recipe came from the Two Wild Hares shop. It’s a very sturdy mold with four cavities that are 3-1/4″ long, 2-1/4″ wide & 1-3/4″ deep.

The folded leaf silicone mold used for the Colorful Autumn Leaf Soaps project is absolutely beautiful and so well made! I suggest getting at least two or three if you can, so you can make more than one leaf soap at a time.

Look for the Leaf II – Handmade Silicone Mold by Williamhouse Korea to get the authentic version with all of its lovely details. (I inadvertently bought a knock-off version elsewhere at first, and the corner was all wrong and the details not as nice.)

Square Ice Trays for Scrub Cubes

Square silicone ice trays are perfect for making sugar and salt scrub cubes. I use these Tovolo brand trays from Amazon, and have also seen them at Bed Bath & Beyond, only listed under the brand name SALT.

Projects shown are Calendula Orange Sugar Scrub Cubes (left) and Pink Grapefruit Pedicure Scrubs (right) from my Easy Homemade Melt & Pour Soaps print book.

succulent shaped soap and a round soap that says "shave soap"

Succulent Mold & Shave Soap Mold

Bramble Berry has an outstanding succulent mold that’s very sturdy and well made. It looks like their succulent melt and pour soap kit contains the same mold as well.

I don’t use a lot of clear plastic soap molds because they can be notoriously difficult to unmold soaps from. However, Milky Way’s Shave Soap mold is quite nice and I didn’t have trouble popping melt and pour shave soaps out of it. I purchased this shave soap mold from Wholesale Supplies Plus.


I hope you found this list of mold sources helpful!

  1. Hi Jan, I love your book and thank you so much for this list of suppliers for the molds-there were a couple I really liked Kathy

  2. hi
    The comments on the cold process mold are closed, so I write them here. I know a place that sells molds that don’t sell anymore.
    It’s sold in Korea.
    I’m not sure if the original mold started in Korea or somewhere else.
    But it’s a mold that was popular in Korea 10 years ago. The price was a bit expensive at the time.

    I got a lot of information from this site. I’m writing this because I want to return my gratitude to you.

    1. Hi Hobbygogo, Thanks for letting us know about the molds!
      Sorry about the comments being closed on the older post for cold process.
      Some of my older posts get a lot of spam comments so I had to close comments on those.
      I appreciate you letting us know about the pretty molds! ❤
