    I have only had one experience with handmade soap.
    A well meaning neighbor of mine purchased handmade soap while touring the Smokey Mountains a few years ago.
    She gave them to me and my Aunt and Uncle who is a Rabbi.
    I did not know they were made with lard and my religion forbids me to touch them.
    My uncle though reads every label before allowing anything in his home.
    I am glad to see that there are handmade soaps safe enough for all of us.
    I have a friend that makes her own and will pass on the recipe. Shalom

    It is also exfoliating which is great when you garden too.
    I have their "soap menu" somewhere around here.. may scan it if I find it. They were dreadful.. lol

    I think different blends would be nice, but my mom nor I have ever figured out when to add the oil/fragrance so it smells nice...:(

    We have "Osborne" heritage days here in Iowa every year, and one of the times went we bought some homemade soap.
    Oh did it smell good! And talk about varieties! They had "fisherman's" soap, harvest smelling soap (looked very pretty, kinda deep rich pumpkin brown/gold and sparkly),poison ivy soap, a turquoise color soap, rose soap (which is what I got) all sorts of kinds..One of those days when you wish you could buy all of them so you didn't have to make up your mind! Lol

    I've never made glycerine soap (the kind that's clear) but I'd like to sometime!

    Oh goodness can't wait to start helping her :) its nice knowing others either make homemade soap or enjoy homemade soaps :)

    I am definitely interested in this idea. I make my own laundry detergent and a lot of my household cleaners. My glycerin soap has got really expensive so I may look into the cost of making my own. *Now if I can just pull another 2 hours a day out of my backside for time AT home I will be good to go*
