Homemade soap is easy when you buy a natural melt and pour goats milk soap base. Chop soap base up into an old saucepan, allow to melt on stove (takes about 5 minutes), add essential oils after soap base has completely melted, pour into container (i recycled a take away plastic container), allow to cool (takes a few hours). Cut with large knife. Use.
I used lemongrass, lavender & clary sage essential oils. Lemongrass is my favourite smell for essential oil for soap, it smells divine in the shower.
The 1 kg of melt and pour soap base from Sydney Essential Oil Company cost me $16.50 plus postage and made 9 bars of soap (6 are pictured). Highly recommend.
