Do you have soap making experience? If so, what are your favorite essential oils/exfoliants/colorings? These would make truly fantastic Christmas gifts!

Lol, too funny, because I watched the video this morning as well before I saw your posting here. I also found the written recipe and plan on trying it. I've always been too afraid because of the lye, but she makes it sound easy!

Been making soap for a long time, it`s not for everyone. We`ve heard horror stories about how people almost burnt down their house soaping! Take your time and do your research and you`ll be fine, make sure to wear gloves and eye protection!

Here`s a sampling of what a person can do once you get the hang of it
