Last night B was nice enough to make a craft store run and pick up all we needed to start making soap this weekend. He got a ton of different scents for us to work with (peppermint, vanilla, lilac, wild berry, coconut and grapefruit), as well as some basic colorants. I’m also planning on adding natural exfoliants to the soap, such as oatmeal, coffee grounds, coconut flakes and corn meal.
Although, I must admit, I almost felt let down after reading the directions because it’s crazy easy to make soap! I feel less special now that I know it’s easy enough for a kindergartner. However, I should admit that we’re starting with the easiest style of soap making, the “melt & pour” method. Eventually, I want to graduate to the more complicated (but still relatively easy sounding) “cold process” method.
