I love making my own soap! Besides the well-known fact that commercially made “soaps” are filled with toxins that may contribute to cancers, estrogen/other hormone issues, and skin sensitivities, I just love the creativity of making my own SAFE soaps just the way I want! When you make your own soap, you get to decide which herbs, essential oils, clays, and exfoliants to use (or not). You get to decide the “mood” of your soap. You get to decide on the color, scent, and how you want it to feel on your body—and all in safe, natural ways.
I used Chamomile to make this soap by infusing it in the water I used for the lye solution. Chamomile is an extremely soothing herb for your skin. I even use this on my face! Because the infused Chamomile turns the soap a beautiful golden light brown color, you don’t even need to worry about adding additional herbs or clays for color (unless you want to, of course).
