Why Make Homemade Soap Bars

When I make a natural bar soap, I don’t like to use any ingredient which could be toxic. So I personally avoid any artificial dyes, perfumes, and additives that can be questionable. 

Learning how to make your own soap bars from scratch is also very satisfying. I love making homemade products for our home. There’s always a sense of accomplishment when making things from scratch.

When making your own soap bars, you can make it with the ingredients that you choose and the fragrances, additives, and colorants that you prefer. 

The recipes that I’m sharing in this post don’t contain any of those questionable ingredients that we are trying to avoid. Instead, they are all naturally made.

Hi Mary, I’m new to all this so this may be a dumb question, but I have a husband who works in the medical field and is in and out of hospitals all the time. His first question to me is going to be, “Does this soap kill germs?” I want to move to a more natural home but he’s big on disinfectants and antibacterial soaps...

Hi Jenny! I think that if you add essential oils that are known for their germ killing ability to the soap base you should be ok. More common types are tea tree, Eucalyptus, citronella, sage, lemongrass, and peppermint. Some companies like Plant Therapy make a germ fighting blend and Doterra makes On Guard which has germ fighting oils. I would definitely recommend that you research these oils a little more to make sure they work for your family. :)
