When I first became interested in making soap for our home, I was really worried about using lye. It’s caustic, extremely poisonous, and very dangerous if it’s not used correctly. Therefore, I researched every single way possible to make soap without lye. Now, what is the answer to the question, “Can you make soap without using lye?” The simple answers are: Yes and No.

It's been my dream to have a homestead for a LONG time. Finally, we bought a property about an hour out of Las Vegas, NV in the high mountain desert. It's small...but it's working. What I have realized is that you can homestead anywhere....even in an urban environment. When I look back now on my life in Las Vegas, I recognize I've been homesteading in various ways for years! We've just expanded, that's all! Our property is 3/4 acre of desert land, and we are making this work! It's so exciting! I'm dedicated to learning with and sharing with other like-minded people...all about being self-sufficient!
