Adventures in Soap Making

by Amy

I’m going to do it. I’ve been putting it off for years. I’m going to risk my life and play with caustic chemicals and make my own soap. I’m not taking the cheater way out and grinding up a store bought bar and adding stuff to it.

Yes, I was going for melodramatic. I know lye isn’t a big deal to work with if you’re careful.

In particular, I want to make an oatmeal honey soap made with all sorts of yummy oils.

Some resources I’m browsing through to make my shopping list, in case anyone is interested in making their own soaps…

Have I ever mentioned I’ve really bad at math and almost as bad with science-y stuff? This will be fun!

Trainings are conducted here and there on how to make a soap. It’s surely fun learning how to make soap and make one for your own skin. ;)

I totally agree….a combination of oatmeal and honey is perfect for the skin :)
Good Luck!

We used to always get our soap supplies from Pinetree Garden Seeds. They were usually a lot cheaper. Have fun with the soap!
