Until around 1916, making soap at home was commonplace. Using wood or plant ashes and leftover animal fats, families produced their own soap for cleaning their clothes and themselves.
It has become a lost art for many, but many of us have enjoyed making our own soaps from scratch.
In recent years, back-to-the-landers and simple-living adherents have revived the homemade soap-making process — but it’s not only in favor with those who leave the big city for rural life or those with an anti-commercialist bent. For anyone interested in living as self-sufficiently as possible, it makes good sense to make your own soap.
If you’re ready to start making soap at home — and reaping its many benefits, you are welcome to join us and learn to make your own. You will be able to walk away with soaps you made from recipes you created.
