What does soap and ceramics have in common? I don’t know yet, but there is something cool about making soap from scratch using simple ingredients. It all started when Lidia says she was making a perfect bowl so she could mix her soap. And I just thought that was the oddest thing in the world.
She gave me a recipe and it was simple ingredients that you can just get anywhere and then just mix them all up and viola soap! Now… I make soap too. I blame her.
I think it is the chemistry, or maybe that buying handmade soap costs $6 a bar the whole foods and I can make these for a little less and get the scents of the essential oils just right…
The best part is the cleanup :), because it soap!
