Soap Recipes Using Lard

Soap Recipes Using Lard Soap recipes using lard are among the best for beginners, because it’s sold in grocery stores and is very cheap. When the recipe contains only Lard, Lye, water, FO or EO, with no other oils, it makes a hard, white bar of soap with lots of bubbles. This helps you achieve that much needed sense of accomplishment before proceeding on to more complicated and expensive recipes.

Make sure you have enough molds ready to pour the soap into before you start, it is a good idea to have extra molds ready to use, in case you need more than expected.
