Soap Making 101: 6 Key Benefits of Making Your Own Homemade Soap

12

You’re a resourceful mom that will do whatever she can to protect her family. In times where serious illnesses such as the coronavirus are in the air, you can never be too cautious about how to kill germs.

One of the best ways to do so is by making your own homemade soap for you and the entire family to use. Not only is it fun to do and a great conversation starter for later, but there are also several amazing benefits to it.

Here are some soap making 101 pointers on what the benefits of creating your own soap are and why you should start.

  1. Customized for Your Needs

Some of you out there might be struggling from irritable or sensitive skin. Even applying the wrong kind of shower soap to sensitive skin can send your entire body breaking out in hives or cause severely dry skin.

If you’d consider yourself a person with sensitive skincare needs, then making your own soap is incredibly advantageous for that.

You can cater the soap to all your needs by mixing in lotions and essential oils that can help combat those problems you’re having.

This leads to cleaner, healthier-looking skin for you and the entire family heading into a season of hot heat and immense sweat.

  1. Protection from Harmful Ingredients

Creating your own homemade soap doesn’t just help you include more helpful ingredients that your skin needs. It can also help you cut out the harmful ones found in store-bought soaps.

Many soaps from the name brands you’d find in your local stores are detergent more than they are actually helpful to your skin.

While the emphasis for soap makers should be on proper skincare, it’s mostly on having as strong a fragrance as possible to make you think that it’s helpful.

Don’t fall for it. Stock up on melt and pour soap supplies so that you can create your first batch of soap today!

  1. Cost-Effectiveness

Say no more, right? Any pattern that you can create to give yourself a financial advantage is certainly worth exploring.

However, not as many budget-cutting methods are usually this fun and handy. Not to mention you can control what goes into them.

You’ll be able to place healthier materials into your homemade soap and still pay less than you would for going the storebought route.

You will find it advantageous to create your soap in huge bulk so that you can stock up and be good to go for several weeks or months (depending on how much you make).

  1. It’s a Blast to Do!

It might be a bit overwhelming the first go-around, but in time you’ll create a system that’s as fast and productive as a well-oiled machine.

More importantly, you’ll enjoy the process of making the soap, incorporating different ingredients, trying out different scents, and many other facets.

Not to mention the satisfaction of using something you made, rather than something you could have made, but decided to spend more money on storebought items.

Think of it as making a brand new food recipe for the first time. At first, it’s a little intimidating to take on an entirely new project. However, the more that you make the recipe, the more ways you learn to improve it and refine the end results.

  1. They Make Amazing Gifts

You will become known far and wide for your infamous homemade soap from the word of mouth marketing (from yourself) of your soap bars.

Seriously, giving soap as a gift can show that you care enough for the person to make a special blend just for them. 

Not only that, but you can wrap them in cute little containers or with a string around them to hand them 2 or 3 at a time. From then on, they’ll become believers of the homemade soap trend as well, if they weren’t already.

It’s simple to make customized soap bars depending on the person you’re making them for and what their preferred fragrances are. 

A nice side note: you can keep one of each custom soap bar that you make for yourself to see if you’d prefer to switch them out for the ones you currently make.

  1. Focus on Germ-Killing

As previously mentioned, there are always illnesses in the air that you’re trying to prevent your family from bringing into the house.

If they do bring it in, then you want to make sure you have soap strong enough to kill those germs and bacteria once and for all.

For that reason, you need to be making homemade soap where you can control the number of antibacterial ingredients to fit your pleasure.

If you want to focus on germ-killing above all else, then you can create bar soap especially for that.  

Better yet, you can customize different soap bars for around the house. The soap bars you make for the shower focus on skincare and fragrance, while the ones you make for the sink(s) are for germ-killing and handwashing.

Soap Making 101: Give It the Old “College Try”

Now that you’ve seen all the different benefits that come from making your own homemade soap, you’re probably itching (pun intended) to get started.

Soap making 101 implies that you’re better off just getting started on your first batch, rather than overthinking the process for your first go-around. Give yourself a few hours to try out different things and make any fixes if you have a setback.
