It may seem counterintuitive to have a product that is typically consumed orally also applied to your daily hygiene routine, but hear us out. Below, we will break down all to know regarding kratom soap benefits, possible skin benefits, and how you can make your own kratom soap at home.


Why Include Kratom in Soap Mixtures?

In addition to being a potential self-medication replacement for illicit opioids[1], kratom soap is a great way to make some extra use of the powder you have sitting around. People considering making their own kratom soap typically do so because of its potential kratom skin benefits

Here is a broader look at the pros and cons of kratom soap:



Can exfoliate your skin

Limited scientific research to back claims

Can moisturize your skin

You might need to make your own

Can kill bacteria


May contribute to healthy skin


May help fight pain


Keep in mind that although we find the pros in the list above to be accurate, we cannot quite confirm them. It’s important to remember here that there is a lack of scientific studies to back up these potential benefits. Therefore, please consult your doctor before making this.


Kratom Soap Ingredients

To get started, here are all the ingredients you need.

  • 2 lbs. of organic shea butter soap base
  • 1 cup of oil - can be avocado, palm, coconut, olive, etc. 
  • 6oz of kratom powder
  • 2 tablespoons of dried lavender buds
  • 3 drops of vegetable dye
  • 10-20 drops of lavender essential oil
  • 10-20 drops of eucalyptus essential oil.
  • Your favorite molds. 

Step-By-Step Guide to Making Kratom Soap

Ready to add some kratom soap to your wellness routine? Let’s go ahead and cut to the chase. Below, we will break down the full process. 

1. Get Your Base Ready

First, gather those 2 pounds of organic shea butter base and melt it using a double broiler until they are melted down into a nice liquid. Make sure the liquid dissolves evenly and that there are no chunks of base. 

2. Add in Carrier Oil & Kratom Powder

Now we are ready to start with the fun part. With your base still in the double broiler, now is the time to mix in that cup of the carrier oil that you got. Remember, it can be palm, coconut, or really whatever your desired oil is. 

Simultaneously, mix in about 6oz of kratom powder. We prefer green vein powder, but it can also be any strain and vein of your choosing!

3. Mix in Your Lavender Buds

Although you can choose from really any type of botanicals, we find that lavender buds are the best for kratom soap. Mix in about 2 tablespoons of lavender buds to add some extra fragrance and soothing properties to your final product. 

4. Drip in Your Vegetable Dye

Next up, we need to turn this sketchy-looking goo into something that looks like soap! To add some extra color, mix in about 3 drops (or as needed) of vegetable dye and mix it thoroughly throughout. 

5. Top Off With Essential Oils

Next up, we need to add a nice aroma to our soap. For best results, we think a nice mixture of both lavender and eucalyptus essential oils offers the best benefits. Make sure that you mix in the oils thoroughly so that it is all evenly distributed. 

6. Pour Into Soap Molds

We’re getting close to done now! Now that we have a nice soap mixture ready, it’s time to let it harden into the good stuff. Pour out your mixture into your favorite soap molds and let them sit and harden completely. For best results, let it sit overnight to ensure it is all completely hardened. 

7. Unmold & Use

After a full night’s rest, go check on your soap babies. They should now be hardened and ready for action. Keep them in a dry cool place until you are ready to use them! 


Using Kratom Soap On a Daily Basis

Once you have your first batch of soap ready to go, you are now ready for the fun part. To get started, it’s best to ensure that there are no unintended side effects. Therefore, start slow and only use a small amount on a small part of your body. 

Once you are confident that you made your soap successfully, lather it and use it as you normally would use your standard body soap!


Tips For Storage & Longevity

If you aren’t ready to use your soap right away, or you are considering selling it, here are some tips for storing and ensuring longevity:

  • Seal it: Use an airtight container to ensure that the product stays fresh over long periods of time. 
  • Store it: For best results, put your finished product in a cool dark place away from any sort of direct sunlight to ensure that it maintains its high level of quality. 
  • Rotate it: As you store your product for longer periods, it is also advised to rotate it now and then to ensure that all sides stay fresh. 
  • Keep it Dry: Finally, don’t let any humidity or water get into your soap - until you are ready to use it!
