Instructions for Pantry Soaps from Martha Stewart

In this project for Pantry Soap, Martha Stewart says "Raid your larder for materials that add texture, color, and fragrance to handmade soaps. The long, thin box shown holds a number of delectable bars ."

So if you would like to create this project from Martha, you will need: Glycerin melt and pour soap base, Honey, Ginger, Cinnamon, Ground clove, Oatmeal, Chamomile tea, and Yogurt Cups (1 1/4 inches deep, or cottage cheese containers). If you do not eat yogurt or cottage cheese, ask someone who does to save the containers for you.

The only thing you will not be able to raid from your pantry is the glycerin soap base. In Martha's instructions, she suggested purchase the soap base from Michaels. But if you are considered about the SLS and other questionable ingredients in the Life of Party Soap, then I would recommending locating a supplier that carries a pure vegetable glycerin soap base. For example, in the San Francisco Bay Area I know of two places that sells such a product. The two places would be Juniper Tree in Berkeley and Opalz Zoaps in Palo Alto.
