- Soap is one of those frustratingly difficult things to make from totally natural ingredients.
- There is of course Castile Soap, which is made from natural products, a lovely moisturizing soap - but is quite runny, and fairly expensive (as in not a good cheaper alternative to bought soap).
- Then there is the option of of making your own, using a plant called Soapwort (Saponaria officinalis) - but you have to use it rather rapidly, as it goes off - and also rather runny.
- Then there is the cosmetic industry which has spent fortunes on perfecting the perfect recipe. And in my personal opinion Dove soap is probably one of the better options. But the price of the liquid soap is a bit pricey. So for a 100g bar of soap you can make 625ml of liquid dove soap- which works out to a huge saving!
- Here's how to do it. So easy. The added glycerin gives the soap a wonderful feel, and is very good for the skin, as bar soaps can be a bit drying
1 (100g) bar of dove soap
1/2 Tbls (7,5ml) Glycerin
2 and 1/2 cups (625ml) Boiled water
-Grate the bar of soap
-Add all ingredients to a pot, and place on low heat
-Stir on and off until all the soap has melted (about 20 minutes or so)
-Put into soap dispenser bottles and the left over into glass bottles for storage.
-It will thicken up even more over night to be almost exactly the same consistency as Dove liquid soap
- Totally awesome!
