One thing that's made my family's life richer is experiencing things we've never tried before. I've found that one of the simplest ways to do that is with subscription boxes! Our favorite box of 2015 was our Homegrown Collective Box. Who will win for 2016? Coming soon!
|The kiddos and I had so much fun making our own soap with Homegrown Collective's "Let Us Make Soap" subscription box!|
|For my first soap, I decided to use the clear soap base and add cocoa & shea butter, and delicious natural honey (I ate a spoonful and added another to the soap). I also melted the white soap base and poured it on top.|
|First step: melt the soap base at 10 second intervals (mine took 30 seconds). Melt the cocoa and shea, also, and stir about a tablespoon into the soap base. I also added a tablespoon of honey from Holly's Little Farm.|
|I made a rosemary and spearmint soap, too. All of them turned out so pretty and smell amazing. I can't wait to use them! Especially the honey/shea soaps as I included the luffa with them. Luffa soaps are incredible!|
|For the kiddos soap, we used the goat's milk and added a bit of lemon grass essential oil. We poured the melted soap into various candy molds we had in the junk drawer. The smaller soaps took about an hour to dry; the bigger ones about 2.|
|Aren't they awesome?! And they smell amazing! The kids were thrilled. We loved our soap making experience. One of my very favorite subscription boxes ever and we have tried so many!|
