|Very Easy Homemade Soap|
There is nothing easier than making soap with this simple recipe! All you do is melt the soap base, then customize it to your taste with coloring, fragrance, and textural additives, and cut it out in shapes appropriate to your purpose.

Prepare mold: cover a cake pan(s) with tin foil.
Melt the soap base in a double boiler over a pan of water that is just barely boiling, stirring constantly. As it begins to melt, add coloring materials and mix well. When almost entirely melted, add essential oils to mix and stir thoroughly. At this point, textural additions and exfoliants can be added.
When mixed, pour into the prepared mold(s). Wait a few hours, then remove soap from pan and cut into desired shapes - cookie cutters work well for this. Do not wait too long as it becomes harder with time. You can re-melt the scraps for more soaps.
