I'm a newby from australia looking into makeing some hand made natural soap and shampoo bars- small batches, for home use.
I have scoured the web finding bits and pieces here or there.
For those at home who have a basic recipie or have a lot of experience with soap making i would be extremely pleased if you could share:
-exact basic recipie listing allowable changes ( ie 12 drops of whatever essential oil you like)
-instructions / how to (step by step explaining jargon)
-do's and don'ts (ie- orange essential oil is BAD)
-and where to buy these products (ie- LYE) from in Australia!!!
estimated cost of a batch would be helpful too.
I'm meerly a student on a budget but i am interested in natural safe, home made recipies and something gentle for my damaged hair and eczema prone hands.
if you know a site where it is ALL at, pleae list
I am aware there are different types of soap makeing, i am not interested in M&P, the old traditional way is best, and if you can describe the different other methods, i'd likely be most interested in the fastest or cheapest way because i have little patience! haha
thanks in advance
