How To Make Soap | DIY Life
I’ve been making my own soap for years, it is so much fun and makes perfect gifts. I plan on selling at the markets later this year (if you’re in Adelaide, look out for me!) but I encourage anyone to have a go even if you just make it for friends and family as gifts. Melt and pour is the easiest (and you avoid using lye, that is needed for ‘cold press’ soap, which is pretty harsh stuff and a takes a longer time to make - that’s right, I am a ‘need it now’ kinda gal!) and you can do so much with it. This is a basic tutorial, and when I have some time I will do a tutorial on how to make my special scrubby soap!
