I tried a few recipes, some more fancy than others, but I found that basic is best....as well as being the least expensive. I started with Castile soap as a base.
If you use scented soap, then fragrant oil is not necessary.
I love this soap for many reasons, such as: it is not overly drying on my skin, it can be made thicker or thinner by adding to or reducing the amount of water and the cost is so
much cheaper than store bought hand soap.
Try it for yourself and see if you like it!
