Soap Up Homemade Style!

As an Italian, I can never get enough olive oil.  So when I sat down with “The Best Natural Homemade Soaps” by Mar Gòmez and discovered my love of olive oil could reach beyond culinary experiences I was very excited to pick it up and get my hands dirty (or should I say clean!).  Opening with an interesting history of soap, and leading to the needed utensils, I was pleasantly surprised that I already had everything required in my kitchen.


In terms of scent, my favorite recipe I made was the Lemon Soap; nothing wakes you up in the morning like the invigorating smell of lemons.  As someone who struggles with oily skin, the Lemon Soap leaves my skin with a squeaky clean feeling but doesn’t dry my skin out.  Another favorite is the Chamomile Soap, not only for myself but for my hairless dog, Zero as well.  The perfect night soap;  Roman chamomile infusion peeking through hints of ylang-ylang essential oil will relax your senses and calm your skin.  The Best Natural Homemade Soaps takes the guesswork and label reading out of soaps and allows you to experiment and make a soap tailored to your skincare.
