Homemade eucalyptus/jasmine soap.
Check it out, we made our own soap! It is eucalyptus and jasmine scented, made with coconut oil. It smells like a dream and lathers quite nicely.
I admit, I was a bit skeptical. I appreciate good beauty products and my shower's windowsill is lined with schmancy body wash, exfoliating scrubs and in-shower body lotions. Yes, lotion in the shower. Because ... I am a sucker. I just start to imagine those computer-generated moisture beads soaking into my dermal desert, and I buy, buy, buy like some sort of crazed Supermarket Sweep contestant.
But after the first lather, I was easily convinced. I'd happily trade all of the bottles for a brick of the homemade version. Not only am I am squeaky clean and free of all chemical residue, but forgoing store-bought bath products is worth of the satisfaction and self-sufficiency of home crafts.
Thank you Alex, for teaching us how.
