Be prepared...in a day or two I'll be sharing with you a lesson in soap making. Many people have commented about soap - how do I make it, why do I make it, what's in it. Soap making is not for everyone. Most people will rather buy Ivory in the stores or good handmade soap from a craft show. Why? Because it's a bother and you really don't make that much money on it if you sell it.
I make soap because my son is allergic to commercial soaps and I cannot afford to buy special soap for him already made. You do what you have to do to get by in life. This is one of those things.
