Soapmaking can be just as satisfying and addictive as creating delicious recipes. Combine ingredients to suit your mood, whether you want to uplift, energize or promote relaxation. This is a pretty and soothing concoction. Calendula is a natural anti-inflammatory; honey nourishes and moisturizes the skin; and oatmeal is a gentle exfoliant. Cheering, soothing, citrus-based essential oils provide the perfect fragrance.
