It is becoming more common for people to make some of their own beauty products. The main reasons for this is that it is generally less expensive and the maker has more control over what ends up in the final product. With so many different chemicals going in mass-market products, some people with sensitive skin and allergies can’t use them. Making soap is a great way to adjust the scent or strength of your product while also giving you a way to create something beautiful.
If the thought of making soap intimidates you, give it a try with a basic recipe. Making soap is easier than it has ever been before. If you still need some convincing, look no further for examples of easy, beautiful soaps.
