Especially now we have to pay special attention to our hygiene, so that we do not infect and endanger others. Apart from effective disinfectant (you can also use home-made disinfectant), regular hand washing with soap is essential. But why not do it yourself? Use your time at home now creatively to make this super-easy natural soap yourself!
Tip: It is also a cool activity for your (or your neighbour’s) kids!
You will need:
- 100 g soap flakes
- 4-5 drops of natural essential oil
- 2 bowls for a water bath
And how is it made?
- Melt the soap flakes in a water bath.
- If you want the soap to smell good, you now have the option of mixing your essential oil of choice. To give the soap the personal pep you can add food coloring, dried flowers or herbs.
- When all ingredients have mixed well in the water bath, you can then pour the soap into special soap moulds or other suitable containers and let it harden.
The homemade soap should harden for at least one day before using it. Accordingly, thicker soaps need more time.
