Make a statement with your AirBnB condo by providing custom soaps wrapped with your own label. It’s easy to make a splash with rich, luxurious soaps that will remind your guests of their visit every time they use them at home.
The soap-making business has gone mainstream after years of being under the radar. It has long been the go-to cottage industry for artisans living in resort areas. Nothing says vacation than a heavily scented soap you can’t buy anywhere else. This guide will show you how to up your hospitality game with a simple home-make soap.
The raw ingredients for making soap can be difficult to handle. If you’re using lye, there are certain precautions you must take including wearing goggles and gloves. This method can be difficult for beginners or for very low volume needs, such as an AirBnB. A better solution is to use the melt-and-pour products that are available. Companies such as BrambleBerry.com have a selection of base soaps that are ideal.
For this project, you’ll need the following: some basic office supplies, a mold for chocolate or candy, some essential oils, a container to melt the soap, and some food colouring. Choose a candy mold that will allow you to wrap a paper label around it. Your brand fastened to the soap with an invitation for guests to take them home is part of the marketing effect.
Melt the soap base in the microwave or on the stovetop. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully to ensure the best results. When it is completely melted, add the essential oils and colour. Add some flax seeds for a natural, exfoliating body scrub. Pour into the molds and allow to set.
There are a variety of essential oils to choose from. You should sample them in person so you’re familiar with each scent before buying. Search online for guides to create custom fragrances, such as a cedar+cinnamon+ginger combo that is a real eye-opening in the morning. There are unlimited combinations so you can create a signature soap that is unique to your special property. Consider providing an extra bar for each guest to show your appreciation for their stay.
Labels can be designed using an online editor then printed on some light card stock. Trim neatly so they look professional and fit perfectly. Wrap snugly around the soap and use a dot of instant glue to secure it.
