New To Soap Making?
If you have never made soap before, have no fear! Because each and every one of these soaps start with a melt and pour soap base that has already gone through the saponification process. What does that mean? It means you don’t have to work with active lye or preservatives. Nor do you need to figure out ratios and percentages.
Melt and pour soap is like using a cake mix. All the difficult stuff is done for you, so you get to add fun things. Just like adding mini chocolate chips, greek yogurt, or hazelnut extract to chocolate cake… if you haven’t tried these you really should.
And melt and pour soap comes in a variety of types, like cake mixes. Instead of double chocolate fudge or red velvet, you can choose from oatmeal, goat milk, shea butter, or honey, for example.
If this is your first time making soap, you may want to check out my beginner’s guide, explaining the process of saponification and melt and pour soap bases. Use the printable soap making guides in the Simple Living Library to help you choose a melt and pour soap base to create your very own customized soap.
So, what are you waiting for? Turn your bath or shower into an apple orchard or pumpkin patch with these easy melt and pour soap recipes for fall.
