DIY: Herbal Soap Making From Scratch

Did you know that industrial soap companies remove the glycerin from soap in order to produce bars that are firmer and longer lasting?  It is true.  According to The Mountain Rose Blog, glycerin occurs naturally during the soap making process,providing a moisturizing quality to soap.  If you make your own soap, the glycerin is retained which makes the soap more gentler and more moisturizing to the skin than the store bought soap.  A good tip is that handcrafted soap should be placed on a well-draining surface and not left standing water where it will quickly dissolve.  The Mountain Rose Herb Blog recently posted a recipe in their posted titled DIY: Herbal Soap Making From Scratch.
