Homemade Soap Making Tips

There are several rules to follow when making your soap:

* Never use aluminum to prepare your soap. You use the wide-mouth glass container to mix your lye solution in, but you will need a container of enamel or iron to “cook” your soap.

If the mold is too thin, it will cause the soap to curl. To add scent to your soap, add the scented oil right before you pour the soap into your molds. Any of the scented oils will do. Add more if stronger scent is desired. Lavender oil is an excellent astringent. Adding olive or almond oil is great for dry skin. Thyme oil acts as a deodorant aid. If you prefer, you don’t need to add any oils. The plain soap alone is great for your skin because it has no artificial additives in it.

* When adding the lye to the cold water, please do so slowly and carefully. Making the soap outdoors will also cut down on the fumes.

Ways to make your Homemade soaps more attractive

You can make “soap on a rope” by forming the soap around a knotted cord. To make the soap prettier, select a glass with an attractive design on the bottom and press the bottom of the glass into the soap.

Wrap the seasoned soap in pretty tissue paper, tie with a bright cord or ribbon, and then store it or give it as gifts. It will not make as strong a scent as the scented oils will. And the scent does disappear completely while you are using the soap.

Try adding powdered herbs or spices to the soap mixture. Soap making can be fun. To create a wonderful gift for yourself or others, put together a basket with homemade soap, a bath salt or oil mixture, and then add a luffa sponge that you have grown yourself. If you wish to whiten the fIber of the sponge, soak the gourd in a weak bleach solution. This will also soften the outer shell.
