    The next step aka special recipe

    For years I have only made one recipe for our home soap. Even though I have it in my thoughts of possible selling down the road. I never ventured into special specific recipes seriously. Hubby and I both have acne issues even in our 50s. But he has a special ability of being a Dirt Magnet...

    How many different oils do you use in your soap?

    You get the best benefit of each oil if you keep it simple. 3 to 5 oils will give you the best of the oils benefits. Less than 10% is worthless in skin benefit. You must remember soap is a wash off product and only stays on a few minutes at most.
