This post contains affiliate links and/or images. I have always been fascinated with the art of soap-making. I was always intimidated to try it, so have bought the expensive soaps from the boutique shops and online specialty stores. I decided I was paying too much and wanted to find a less expensive alternative.
After reading a book about soap making from the library, I was ready to give it a try. I could not believe how easy it is! I will be sharing a lot of great recipes with you over the next few months! I also love knowing the ingredients that go into my soap. My skin can get quite sensitive, so it’s important that I use products that are gentle yet, effective.

1. 1/2 lb. goats milk soap base
2. 2 tablespoons dried rosemary
3. 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
4. 10 drops rosemary essential oil
5. Soap mold.
