Find your nearest craft store & purchase Soap Base. The cost is around $9.99 lb. Different types, goats milk, olive oil, Shea butter, coconut oil, etc. Purchase a plastic soap mold at $1.99. Melt four squares & add any spice you would like; cinnamon, coffee, lemon juice, cayenne, etc. Get creative & look up the benefits to each spice before adding. Coffee soap is great for wrinkles, cellulite, stretch marks. Cinnamon is good for circulation, acne, blood pressure. Let stand in mold for 1 hour!

MORE INFORMATION:
You can make approximately 8-10 soaps from one soap base! Makes great gifts or you can sell them to family members. That's what I do when I make a lot & it pays for itself! Regular soap has harmful chemicals so give your body a natural treat with each bath & save money on the way to a healthy u!

    You're 2 suggestions (coffee & cayenne) sound good, what type of soap base do you use? I am starting to get concerned @ wrinkles (coffee) and have trouble with inflammation and blood pressure (cayenne)
