Once I visited my village and when I was going back to my city, there I saw this amazing small shop, where you can get many things like soap, shampoo, and other home groceries and while I was enjoying the view I saw that people were making soaps and hand soap from natural and organic things, I got very excited and stopped there and bought a couple of handmade soaps, after that I went to home took a shower and used that soap, the smell was good and it was very bubbly when applying to the body the soap gave a great fragrance to my body and let me have a nice shower after using them I got used to them in just a couple of weeks and it really made my skin so soft and silly and I started looking more lively the skin was glowing than before so when I ran out of my soaps I went online to find a store that sells organic handmade soap the price was way too expensive for them, and I couldn’t afford that much for just a soap so I look on the internet and tried to find how to make a great organic soap just at your house with stuff that will easily be available at near stores and I got it so I’m gonna share that with you how you can also make a great organic liquid hand soap at home that will work as a hand soap and body wash too.
Ingredients you will need

Essential oils any oil is okay 3 ounce.

Let’s make our soap
You will need a slow heater or cooker, a blender(hand or electronic), a jar that you will put your soap in, get a masher and plastic spoon that is durable, not low quality,
Get your gloves on and get the eyes protected by your goggles as we will start from now on.
Turn your heater too high and start to melt all the oils together just the oils only.
Get that 25 ounces of water and put it on a container and then pour the potassium hydroxide carefully and make sure you don’t do that reverse or it can be dangerous once you pour it and mix it, the sound will come and you will know that it’s getting dissolved.
Now when all oils are melted and mixed pour that water into the baker containing the oil.
Cook it for 60 min in high flame, then turn to low flame and stir it once or twice after every 10 or 20 min for 2 hours.
After that, it will become hard and won’t be stirred by spoon so get that masher in and start breaking it.
Take another container and put 60 ounces of water there and when it boiling to the high temperatures and you can see bubbles pour that mixture into that container.
Add your vegetable glycerine now and start Stirring the ingredients and leave it covered for a few hours or overnight if possible in low flame and when you come back you will see a jelly kind of form.
Let the soap rest for 60 min and then take a spoon and get that jelly above the container aside as the soap is below that in liquid form.
And it’s done you have your own handmade liquid soap you can take a bath or wash your hand with this.
