1 Information
do not have the time to make soap from scratch, you can still make
homemade soaps. You can purchase castille granules at most
drugstores. There is no need to mess with lye when using these
granules. Since they are actually granulated soap, it is easy to make
soap from them. Put the granules into a kettle and add water.
Instructions for use will probably be on the package. If not, use
common sense in adding water. (Don't drown the granules.) Heat the
mixture at low to medium heat and stir it constantly with a large
wooden spoon. The granules will dissolve. Stir the mixture until it is
smooth. Remove it from the heat and add any other ingredients or
emolients that you want. Stir them in well as the soap cools. Add
perfume (if desired) as they very last ingredient. Blend it in so that
the fragrance will be evenly dispersed. Pour the mixture into molds,
and let harden. If the soap does not set (that is, if the bars do not
get hard) reheat the mixture, adding more castille granules as
necessary. Before it cools completely, you will need to add more
perfume because reheating the mix will release the volatile floral
oils, thus destroying them. SOURCE: MAKING POTPOURRI, COLOGNES AND
