From essential oils, cold process, bath bombs, and ingredients from your kitchen, there are a lot of ways to create a healthy, soap bar.
Handmade natural soap is not only good for your skin but so satisfying to use after you make it! My kids get so excited to take a bath after we make our handmade soaps together! They love using what they created! And, since my kids have sensitive skin, I like that we KNOW what is in our soap!

We have also tried making an organic shampoo bar before with palm oil and those turned out really good. They are great for kids hair (and adults too!). My hair is so thick, so I have to use other products on my hair, but the shampoo bar is great to have in your kid’s shower for them to use. My hubby likes using it too.
Nothing is more important than good skincare! And when you make homemade bar soap yourself, you know what you are putting on your skin. With natural ingredients like blueberries (what we used this time!) to brown sugar, shea butter, olive oil, coconut, distilled water or natural colorants, there are so many ways to make homemade soap!
There are a lot of fun soap recipes out there, but today, I will give you the recipe for a yummy blueberry handmade soap! It not only smells amazing, but it leaves your skin refreshed and so soft! Nothing like natural handmade soap! Soap making has never been so fun!

Helpful Tips For Making Blueberry Handmade Soap
Anyone can make handmade soap, right? True, but here are some very helpful tips to creating the most perfect handmade soap yet!
*Grease your molds before you start. This will make it much easier to get your handmade soaps out of their molds more quickly and easily!
*Wait a few days to clean your soap making equipment. It is said that if you wait a few days to clean your soap making equipment and soak them in hot water, you won’t have to scrub them.
*Make sure you have plenty of rags and/or paper towels for quick cleanups
*Have all the measuring spoons on hand to easily grab and use
*Buy in bulk so you don’t run out mid-way through making your handmade soap!
How To Store Your Blueberry Handmade Soap
It is important to store your handmade soaps in a soap dish or in the soap dish area in your tub or shower. That way, when you are done using the soap, the soap can air dry a bit. If you don’t put it in a soap dish or tray, it might get really mushy on the bottom and it won’t last as long. If you have extra handmade soaps that you have not used yet, I recommend putting them in an airtight container until you use them.
