The aesthetic side is also important. Industrial soap often disappoints with the primitive form of the bar. But the soap, made with your own hands, can take any shape you want a heart, a flower, a dolphin, and so on. In addition, by mixing colorful masses, adding dry flower petals, using other decor methods, you can create a truly unique soap that will delight others and become a real decoration of the bathroom.

Handmade soap can be a powerful aromatherapy tool when you add natural essential oils. It is easy to create soap with your favorite scent. Vanilla and lavender, rose and lilac – the scent of handmade soap will have nothing to do with the chemical smells of industrial soap.
