How to make homemade soap ?
You can find the links explaining how to make all of the essential oil homemade soap recipes at the bottom of this page, there are many to choose from, follow the simple soapmaking instructions for each individual homemade soap.
To use soap that has been made by your own fair hand is akin to eating vegetables that you have just pulled from your veggie patch........LUSH !!
A truly fabulous feeling !!
To make your own homemade soap is an equally satisfying and creative process - incorporating essential oils and herbs of your own choosing thus enabling you to combine fantastic blends that work for you, is a true voyage of discovery.
How to make homemade soap?
The individual homemade soap recipes that are listed below are tried and tested many times over.
These unique homemade soap recipes produce between 8 - 12 bars of soap, larger quantities are not required as I prefer to make a varied selection of different soaps for just friends and family - I do not make soaps commercially, although the idea has been tempting !!
Each "how to make homemade soap recipe ", has soapmaking instructions that are deliberately brief and succint - other pages on the website go into much more detail regarding the uses of essential oils, interesting facts and historical usage of the many herbs and the use of lye.
The " how to make homemade soap" method outlined with each recipe should be followed exactly to produce great results - the "cold process soapmaking method" is sometimes portrayed as difficult - it's not - if you can cook a simple meal you can make homemade soap ! It is simply....... easy !
Although care must be taken with the lye - just as you would take care with a hot stove !
Please note the cautions and safety data regarding the use of lye and essential oils.
I prefer to use only olive oil for making my homemade soap, as it is what is on my doorstep and readily available ( I live on a Greek island ) hence all of my recipes are a homemade lye soap, using a basic pure olive oil soap recipe, with added herbs and essential oils.
I use the blends that I have used ( I am a qualified Aromatherapist) for over 20 years, that I know work well together.
Nowadays, I don't tend to measure the temperatures of the oil and lye, I just gently heat the oil , over a really low heat for a couple of minutes, having mixed my lye and water first and letting it cool for about 5 minutes before I start warming the oil.
After warming the oil I add the dissolved lye and water mix, very slowly and carefully into the oil and then zizz with my stick blender until trace is reached, I then add any oils and herbs, zizz again for a moment with the stick blender and pour into molds.
As you become more adept and confident in making your homemade soaps, I am sure that you will dispense with the thermometers too but I feel if you are just starting out then its nice to have the reassurance that the measuring of temperatures can give you.
It really is your choice, whatever, it remains a very simple process to master -be warned soapmaking can become addictive !
Feel free to make, create, discover and be inspired, take your own aromatic odyssey !
Above all have fun and enjoy making homemade soap!!
