I am in the mood to learn about making my own soaps. I found a website that gives a free soup recipe, and all of their ingredients are naturals and easy to pronounce. However, I wanted to make something that is organic. The oils that I wanted to use does not comes cheap. I know in the long run, my children will grow up healthy, but is it really worth the money? How long is a bar of home made soaps last? Is it cheaper to buy it from people who care about health like me, using organic oils and natural ingredients? However, in the other side of the coin, I wanted to learn how to do it, just in case I can't buy anything. DH said, "for that amount of soap oils, that better last a long time."
