You can make your own scented soap using grated bars of unscented soap and not have to use lye. I know many folks that want to make their own soaps in scent and shapes that appeal to them but they are afraid of using lye. Because lye is caustic and can burn many are too afraid to try to work with it. Tracy from Capper’s Farmer shares instructions on how to make your own scented soap using grated bars of unscented soap like ivory. She also provides a recipe for making an Orange Ginger soap that I imagine smells divine. There is coconut oil in the recipe so the soap would be super moisturizing.
Once you have made the soap it goes into molds to cool and set up. Then you take it out of the molds and let it dry for three weeks. Tracy plans to felt her soap and you could too or make more batches and be ready to hand out individually scented soaps to all your friends and relatives come the holidays. You have months to find out their favorite scents and make soaps that are meant for them. What better gift that something made by hand that was made strictly for that one person rather than mass-produced for anyone. I think my favorite scents would be lemon balm and pink grapefruit, mmm I can almost smell it. How great to start your days in citrusy suds.
