I love homemade and natural things, and our social media play a vital role in introducing many households, beauty, and time-saving hacks that make our lives easy. And I always love to try all of them. But as the weather changes, it affects our health and our skin. So, in the care of my skin, I decided to try natural homemade soap to moisture and clean the skin, and here I am also sharing the tips and tricks of soap with my own experience to make it easier. In the following article, we get to know about How to make soap? So please don’t skip the article from anywhere and read it carefully because it will be very useful for all of you guys.
The regular soap bar sometimes cant give us satisfying results and sometimes causes dryness, blackheads, and pimples on our skin. And the skin treatment we can’t afford and thus we start wondering on social media to get our skin solutions, but all solutions are expensive with home delivery. Thus, I recommend you make soaps at home with natural ingredients and apply moisturizer and natural ingredients to your skin. And we all know that nature also provides us with natural products in the form of fruits and oils to get clean and clear skin.
How to make strawberry soap
The strawberries include anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and skin exfoliating properties that help rid skin burn and inflammation and are thus good for acne skin conditions. Also, the strawberries with alpha-hydroxylic acid and Omega- 3 fatty acids found in strawberries lighten the skin complexion, and the beads of the strawberries work well in removing dead skin cells. You can also use strawberries freeze cubes to tone your skin, improve skin texture, and lighten pigmentation and acne marks.
You can make the strawberries soap with caustic soda or the ordinary soap bars present in your home. So let’s prepare both soaps:
Strawberry soap with caustic soda
50-gram Strawberries sliced
325g olive oil
22 g of beeswax
95 gr of caustic soda
175g of water
10 drops of strawberry essence
Steps to follow
Add the strawberries and water to a double boiler and cook until the strawberries slices mix and mash well. You can also be used strawberries paste by grinding them in a grinder or food process, whatever you have.
When the strawberries paste is ready, add carefully caustic soda and keep cooking and stirring.
On the other side, take a bowl, add beeswax and olive oil, heat until they are well combined, and pour into the strawberry caustic soda mixture well to make a paste.
When you get a homogenous mixture, please put them in the selected molds before it hardens.
Keep the molds in a cool, dry, and dark place for 2 days. After that, check the soap. It hardens, then start using them, or if not, leave for one more day and then start using the strawberry soap bar.
Strawberry soap with the neutral soap bar
150 gram of Strawberries
120 neutral soap bar
1 cup of Water
Few drops of Essential oil
Steps to follow
Clean the strawberries and cut them in half or into slightly smaller pieces.
In a saucepan or pot, put a cup of water in a double boiler and add the pieces of strawberries, leaving them until the pulp dissolves.
When done, use a filter to keep only the pulp and remove excess water.
Grate 120 gr of neutral soap and mix it with the pulp of the strawberries, returning the mixture to a bain-marie without boiling it directly.
When the mixture is as homogeneous as possible, please remove it from the heat and add 10 drops of strawberry essence and continue mixing.
Pour the mixture into the soap mold you have chosen and let it cool down without putting it in the fridge for 1 or 2 days, making sure that everything has hardened and you will be ready to use it.
How to make liquid soap
The liquid soaps are we like to use instead of rubbing the soap bar on our hands and sometimes slip from our hand, and we hesitate to use it, and thus we want to purchase it but find it more expensive than the soap bar, so here we have the method that you can make liquid soap at home.
One bar of soap that you have at home.
Two teaspoons of liquid glycerin or olive oil instead.
Essential oils (optional).
Steps to follow
Crush the soap bar with a crusher that you commonly use in your kitchen for crushing vegetables like carrots and radish etc., and get small rice grain-like pieces of soap.
Now put the soap and water in a double boiler and start heating and stirring until all the soap dissolves in the water.
Now add liquid glycerine to it and stir to make a homogeneous mixture. The glycerin or olive oil makes your liquid soap more moisturized that you can apply it to your skin.
Now remove from the heat and add essential oil or another aroma. If you dont add it, your handwash smells like the soap bar.
So you can add your favorite aroma like chocolate, fragrances, fruity aroma, or others that you like.
To make it softer and moisturized, add a few more drops of almond oil.
Remove from the pot, move into a jar, and start using.
Glycerine soap bar
1 glycerin tablet or liquid glycerin
essential oil to fragrance
Food coloring (optional)
Steps to follow
First, take the glycerine tablet into small cubes and melt it using a microwave or a double boiler.
You can also use liquid glycerine to make the soap. You must heat water and add the glycerin to thicken it when it is hot without boiling. Check the manufacturer’s instructions to determine how much liquid glycerin you’ll need for soap making.
Now keep stirring the liquid, start thickening, and keep removing the air bubbles in the soap bar.
Also, add essential oils for fragrance and color your soaps with your favorite food color.
Pour the mixture inti=o the mold and let them harden. To increase the speed of that process, you can also put them in the freezer for a day and then check.
While removing them from the molds, use your hands instead of any other instrument, and be careful while removing the mold dont break the soap bar.
