I am very interested in making my own soap, both for my own personal use as well as for gifting. I've been very happy with purchased (supposedly) homemade goat's milk soap. I'm not particular as for ingredients; I don't have any concerns or restrictions regarding homeopathic, vegan, etc., ingredients. I haven't purchased any supplies yet, because I don't have any experienced input as to what I need and I'm not nearly educated enough regarding the soap making process. I am trying to learn, I want to learn before I attempt. I would appreciate any educated information/links for legitimate information/tutorials. I never know what to trust via youtube or google searches. I am hoping for solid advice from people with experience. To be honest, I'm hoping to avoid spending money unnecessarily, as well as false starts and failed attempts. Maybe it's vanity, but I hope to not have any disasters starting out so I don't lose my desire to create my own.
