Before making soap, you’ll want to make sure you know how to use lye safely. If you’re using a recipe, general soap-making instructions will help you turn a list of ingredients into a bar of soap. If you’re developing your own soap recipe, I’ve got a few tips and tricks including conversion tables and a table about the properties of soapmaking lipids and a directory of essential oils.

The history of soap is pretty fascinating, if not totally real. You might also be interested in how saponification – the chemical reaction that creates soap – works or even in how soap gets you clean.

Want to add a little something extra to your soap? Make a soap stamp so you can personalize all your bars.
