Which ever kind of soap you can make is up to you and how much you are willing to pay. There is plenty of homemade recipes to choose from that can be written and published online. A few tips to help out your process.

While making soap yourself is better than buying it, make sure that you either have a stove or electric mixer. You need to be very careful when mixing the oils and the wax. You do not want wax and oils to floating on your soap when removing the soap mixture from the heat. That would be very difficult to do.

Also, make sure you have a towel to wipe away any excess oil that drips out of the soap during the wash. You do not want your soap to get mixed with any dirty laundry that you are currently cleaning. Any excess oil on your laundry could interfere with the effectiveness of the wash and result in a less than optimal soap performance.

Another thing to keep in mind is your water temperature when making the soap. If the temperature is too hot, you will dehydrate your skin and result in tightness and skin breakdown. Wrap your towel tightly around your head to prevent the soap and any excess oil from splashing onto your face.

Alright, that is it. Make sure to have a few supplies on hand and you are ready to begin!
