Almost every soap on the planet irritates my condition with most of the all natural alternitives smelling absolutely dreadful or leaving a unwanted film on my skin. Now there are companies online that promise relief with exotic herbs and plant extract though at over $13.00 a bar I just can’t afford that luxury. So I’ve decided to take action and make my own soap from scratch. Are there any true n' tried soap recipes for a first time soaper? Is cold processed soap the way to go? I'm really partial to musty-wooden-vanilla-coffee-spice though it seems that my skin does best with anything carrying a menthol-peppermint-mint-tingle to it.
