For Christmas I got from my brother this beautiful basket of hand made soap.
I had absolutely no idea that you could prepare your own soap at home. In fact all you need is lye, distilled water and natural oils (cocunut and olive oil are the most used). Of course you can add other oils, herbs or fragrances if you wish, but the most important thing is, from my point of view, that this hand made soap does not contain animal fat. But it does contain glycerine, which industrial soap usually doesn’t.
So not only are these soap bars very pretty, they also leave your skin smoother. I’m won over.
