I’m Thinking of Making My Own Soap

My mind has been swirling with the possibility of making bar soap for our family.  I’ve been investigating buying or even making my own lye.  With fat in the freezer, from the last time we raised pigs. the idea of  creating rendered fat ourselves is another thought as well.   Let’s just say ‘it’s all coming together’ so to speak.

Now I need the know how.  One of the books that’s come highly recommended to me was this one that I found on sale this morning on Amazon:

Smart Soapmaking: The Simple Guide to Making Traditional Handmade Soap Quickly, Safely, and Reliably, or How to Make Luxurious Handcrafted Soaps for Family, Friends, and Yourself ~ Reg. $15.00 now $10.40 and FREE Super Saver Shipping.

Do any of you make your own soap?  Any recommendations?


  1. Do a lot of reading on the internet before you make any soap. It’s a lot of fun but does take some preparation and some dedicated time. Here’s a pretty good site http://www.millersoap.com/
