I have been looking into making my own soap for years now but haven’t actually got round to making any. I have some free time this week and wanted to try and make some of my very own soap.

The recipe that I am sharing with you all today is slightly different as it is a lye based soap. Lye can be dangerous but once it has cured and in your soap it is perfectly fine.  Always cover exposed skin, wear eye goggles, and wear thick rubber gloves when making lye or handling it when making soap. Always use lye in a well-ventilated area. Be extremely cautious with it and you should be fine.

This soap can be used to make homemade laundry detergent, general household cleaning recipes, and as a poison ivy treatment. Check it out and let me know.
