A simple and easy DIY soap recipe that will smell so good you won’t know whether to eat it or wash with it.
Have you ever thought about making your own soap?
If not, let me tell you that it is actually one of thee easiest and coolest things that I have done. And I think I have done some pretty cool stuff...
I love when I make things that can be useful. Especially when my brain had me thinking it was something I could probably never do.
The best part? I had a decent amount of the ingredients in my kitchen! Score!
Thank god for the interwebs that let you be an expert in as many or as little things as you might like to.
And being the experimentalist that I am, I am willing to give almost anything a try to prove myself (or my husband) wrong about what I can do.
So this soap was birthed from a culmination of me scrolling through Pinterest and also the fact that I have to buy special soap for my little one who has had skin irritation issues since birth anyway.
I figure if I can trust someone else to make it, why not trust myself.
So if you are feeling froggy and want to leap into soap making for hobby or to cut it off your shopping list, like me, here is the simple and easy recipe that I started with.
