If you’ve ever considered making your own soaps at home but thought it was too hard, think again. Soap making is easier than you think, thanks in no small part to the easy availability of high quality organic soap making supplies.

Melt and pour soap bases:  If you’re a beginner soap maker, this is the easiest way to start learning how to create your own soaps. Soap base can be purchased in chunks and cut down to the required size to make your soap. Simply melt the soap base in a microwave or double boiler and add color or fragrance to create exotic individual soaps.

Some suggestions you might want to consider adding to your M & P soap base include:
Apricot kernel oil–good for sensitive skin
Lavender essential oil–good for soothing away stress
Aloe vera–soothes dry or chapped skin
Honey–softens skins
Tea tree oil–an astringent
Once you’ve melted your base, add your “extra” ingredients and stir, then pour into molds and let the soap harden.
Traditional soap making with lye
If you prefer a challenge, try this simple soap recipe using your favorite organic soap making supplies. Beware, soap making lye is caustic and should never be used without proper precautions.
¼ cup of crystal lye
2/3 cup of coconut oil
2/3 cup of almond oil
2/3 cup of olive oil
¾ cup distilled water (cooled)
Glass jars
Thermometer
Add your lye to your water in one jar, stirring constantly to prevent lumps.

Combine the oils in another jar. Stir then microwave for about a minute, or until they reach around 120 degrees F. Allow both the oils and the lye mixture to cool to around 95 degrees F, then add your lye mixture to the oils and combine, stirring until it begins to thicken.
Add your “extra” ingredients, mix well, then pour into molds and allow the soap to harden. Once your soap has hardened, turn it out onto a soap rack and allow it to finish curing.
