Glycerin Soap Making – Homemade Soap Recipes Beginners Love
When I was first starting to making soap. You know back when I was afraid lye would kill me. I started with bars of glycerin soap that I melted down and then remolded. In the day I used glycerin soap bought from the grocery store. Today Amazon makes it super easy with melt and pour glycerin.
All you need for success with this is a silicon mold, some food dye, and what ever you fancy adding to your little soap creations.
