has anyone made soap?

Postby jillychick » 24 Sep 2013, 08:51

Has any one made soap? I read an article recently and was fascinated and tempted to give it a try. I like organic materials with essential oils.Would any one share recipes? Would make lovely gifts for Christmas

Oh and a very lovely husband who puts up with my pets because he loves me very much.

There's lots of stuff about making soapHERE Julie on that forum is an expert soap maker and I am sure would love to give hints and tips plus I think there are lots of recipes on there also and names of ingredient suppliers :grin:

aha jillychick, you are the first person to officially mention 'Christmas' on this forum so far. Which reminds me, who might be up for a Secret Santa? And who would organise it? Xmas isn't actually that far away !!!!
my chooks: Sage&Onion, Roger the randy cockerel, Squawkbox, Bonnie 'N' Clyde, Pancakes, Custard, Omelette & EggNog. Plus four garden cats and another half dozen feral ones that I feed. And a nursery of pipistrelle bats in the verandah roof ..
