Making your own herbal soaps gives you the option of adding your favorite herbs, oils or other ingredients such as milk or oatmeal. Herbal soaps are natural, which are usually better for your skin. Creating your own herbal soaps also gives you the option of adding ingredients that will enhance, help and compliment your specific skin type.
Prepare the additional ingredients you plan to add to your herbal soap.
- Grind the dried herbs or flowers with a mortar and pestle.
- Boil 1/4 to 1/3 cup (60 to 80 ml) water, take it off the heat and let 2 to 4 tbsp. (30 to 60 ml) of the dried herbs and flowers of your choice steep for 15 minutes. This step is optional in how to make herbal soap.
