    Halcyon Eve's Note:

    From a blog, "Homemade Bath Products", about, well, making your own bath products. :) I haven't tried making it yet, but I'm gathering recipes for making products with shea butter--it seems to work pretty well on my hand eczema (contact/allergic dermititis). Times are guesses and don't include cooling time.

      I love experimenting with new recipes for the bath! I had the inredients, so I ended up making this recipe. I melted the glycerine soap base down and measured out 2 cups. (The rest went into a old tupperware container...the glycerine just pops out when you need to re-melt it). Both these ingredients are very good for dry, damaged skin. I got 7 bars of soap, but that all depends on the size of mold you use. I used a heart shape mold for mine. If you have problems un-molding, put it in the freezer for 30 minutes and that will help release the soap. Any handcrafted soap makes a wonderful hostess gift
