It’s the feeling of giddiness you get when you are doing something you love; the smile you can’t keep off your face. You might even sing or hum from bliss. That is how I feel when making soap. It’s good clean fun.
I have been making all of my own cold-process soap and natural beauty products for many years now. I love coming up with new scent and color ideas for the various projects. Playing with recipes is as much the experience for me as using or giving away the end product. In fact, it’s more of why I want to make soap. And that is why melt and pour soap projects are so appealing, and why I put together Good Clean Fun: THE Idea Book for Creative Melt and Pour Soap Projects.
It’s the enjoyment of the craft that gets me giddy, not the end product. And, while it is lovely to have a stash of handmade gifts on hand, making soap gives me so much more than just a check-mark on my gift list.
Melt and pour soap takes away the complicated steps from making soap at home with fat and lye, and allows you to craft up a range of creative soap projects with great ease. It’s as easy as melting premade soap base and pouring it into molds. If you can use a knife, spoon, and microwave, you can make gorgeous soap at home!
