I have always enjoyed making soap because it feels somewhere between a recipe you make in the kitchen and a science experiment. I love the trial-and-error approach and am always excited to see what it can yield. Our latest soap project can be found in "Wonder Bars" from our April issue. Instead of using colorants and essential oils as additives (for scent and color), we made purées with fruits and herbs. The purées are added to a plain glycerin soap base and then poured into recycled containers to mold. So all you need to get started is glycerin soap base—the rest you probably already have in your kitchen!
