Today, I want to give you a simple and fun recipe. This time I will share how I made a glycerin soap. Of course, when I tell you that the main ingredient of this soap will be glycerin, you may think that it is a chemical soap. But you are wrong. This soap is all natural. And it has no chemical components that is harmful to your skin. What is more, this soap has various benefits to your skin.
This soap is ideal for people with sensitive skin. Also, this soap can be used for treatment of eczema or any other skin conditions.
Because this soap has amazing moisturising effect. And moist is what a sensitive skin needs. Glycerin will attract and hold water when it is in contact. This way, it will transfer all the water and moist to your skin. So, you can use this soap to wash your face. By doing that, you will use one of the most natural and beneficial facial cleaning products of all time.
Also, this soap will balance the pH level of your skin. So, if you have oily skin, your skin will no longer shine. And for dry skins, this soap will give all the moist you will ever need. Preparation of this homemade glycerin soap is super easy. If you want to spice things up, you can add essential oil to your recipe. Here, I gave you my own DIY soap recipe with essential oil.
While preparing this recipe, there is one important thing to consider. While mixing glycerin, you should use wooden spoon. Metal spoons may react with the soap ingredient and can cause undesired chemical reactions in the soap. If this happens, all benefits of the soap will disappear.

How to Make Glycerin Soap Preparation
Add glycerin in a bowl.
Take a pot and fill the half of the pot with water.
Place the pot on medium heat.
Place the bowl in the pot.
Melt glycerin. If you have a double boiler, you can use it for the steps above.
Add essential lavender oil in the melted glycerin.
Mix all the ingredients with a wooden spoon until you obtain uniform mixture.
Pour the mixture into moulds.
Spray rubbing alcohol on the soaps.
Wait for the moulds to cool down
Once the moulds are cool, your soap will be ready. You can use your homemade soap immediately. Also, you can make small changes in the recipe. For example, when I get bored, I like to play with essential oils. Here, in this recipe I used essential lavender oil.
But, as I gave you in the ingredients list, you can change this oil with essential lemon oil or any other alternative. This will only change the smell of you homemade glycerin soap.
