Simple SoapMaking soap is not terribly difficult but you have to buy a few things. To be honest everything I learned was from this great video on TheCrafyGemini youtube channel. This recipe results in a lovely wonderment from the saponification of olive, coconut, almond and castor oils. I wouldn't lye to you! This soap can also be used as a shampoo bar or even use it for shaving! Those with skin allergies to commercial soaps will love this recipe!
| Contains no: Triclosan, phthalates, parabens, titanium dioxide or calcium thioglycolates.
