Homemade Castile Soap | Hot Process Castile Soap | Easy Soap for Beginners
Making soap has always been a passion of mine. I love making cold process soaps because they are easy to work with, but hot process has its advantages as well. With hot process soaps, you do not have to wait for the soap to cure for a few weeks; you can use it as soon as it is hard. I also love how rustic hot process soap looks. Since this is the first real, hand made, soap I am sharing here, I decided we should start off easy with a simple Homemade Castile Soap Recipe.
Homemade Castile soap is great for a number of reasons. While it does not give off a rich, thick lather, it has a high level of glycerin. Glycerin is great for moisturizing the skin, and is gentle on the skin. Because it is a gentle soap, it is great for children and pets. You can melt it down to make liquid hand soap, body wash, face wash and laundry soap.
