most of the bars of soap you’ve used in your
life, you bought in some big drugstore, pulled off the shelves
of a large grocery store, or picked up at a superstore. And
most people, when they hear about soap making, they
think it takes place in some big factory.
But there was a time when just about every family made their
own soap. There’s real historical value in soap making.
Some people will drive for hours to an open-air museum, where
they can see how people lived a hundred or two hundred years
ago. You might see women with long dresses, acting the roles
of historical figures as they stir iron pots over open fires
at one of these historical recreations.
You can do the people who travel to historical recreations
one better, in the comfort of your own home. Just by making
your own soap, you’ll get a much better sense
of how people lived their daily lives all those hundreds of
years ago. You’ll know exactly what you and your family
are using to wash with, every day, because you’ll be
able to eliminate harmful chemicals and unnecessary
additives. You can add the natural ingredients that
you find most beneficial to the soaps that you plan to use.
And you’ll find that a basket of homemade soaps
with all natural ingredients make a wonderful gift,
In the process, plan to do your great-great-grandmother one
better, too, because you can enjoy all the benefits of
without the muss and bother your ancestors had to put up with.
Make your own soaps at home, using modern versions of the
same ingredients that your forbearers used.
Soap making is so easy, just about anyone can enjoy doing
it. And when you’re done, you’ll have so much
more than a bar of soap in your hand—you’ll have
a link to heritage.
