Soap Making For Beginners - How to Make Amazing Natural Handmade Soap - Emile Joy



I want to thank you and congratulate you for downloading the book, Soap Making For Beginners This book is your complete guide to soap making and all the necessary tips and tricks.

This book contains proven steps and strategies on how to make some very soothing and relaxing soap bars in the comfort of your home. While the easy way out is going out to the store and picking up soap or a liquid gel, how about making a soap that combines all your favorite flavors? Well, we all know how one soap manufacturer uses jojoba while the other would choose coconut oil! That leaves us with one option, I guess. We just buy both and use them in turns! Well, that is certainly painful. Instead, I choose a safe option of making soap at home using the goodness of both ingredients.

In fact, there are several stores that sell home-made soaps. Yes, I am talking about those stores that sell oddly shaped cakes of soap that are not exactly visually appealing. Yes, they smell heavenly! That is the only reason I walk in to most of those stores. But, I am out in a wink when I look at the exorbitant price tags on them. I mean, it is atrocious to empty my wallet for an ingredient that grows in my backyard!

So, I decided to try out soap making in my own home. I can vouch for this ancient practice because it is super fun and is actually quite the pride issue. It feels great when my friends ask me why my skin looks so good and refreshed and I am able to tell them that it is because of a soap I made on my own. The look on their face is priceless. If you want to experience that jubilant moment, too, just flip through the pages of this book and you will know what I mean!

On that note, Thanks again for downloading this book, I hope you enjoy it!

Chapter 1: The History of Soaps

There are so many things that we use of a daily basis that we simply take for granted. For instance, that bar of soap lying in the bathroom. Well, it’s just soap for heaven’s sake! Why make such a big deal out of it! But, what I learnt very soon is that the history of soaps is so fascinating! I almost feel a sense of respect for these daily goods that make their way in and out of our homes almost inconspicuously.

Soap was first discovered during the excavation of an ancient Babylonian site. They manufactured soap almost 6000 years ago in 2800 BC. They were the brains behind understanding the common ingredients of soap. Today soaps consist of some alkaline base and oils. The Babylonians were the first ones to use this method by boiling fats with water and ashes. Of course, I am not sure if most of us would consider rubbing a bar of this soap along our skin! Neither did they, actually. The earliest forms of soap were only used in the textile industry. It was almost 1000 years after the discovery of soap that it was used for medicinal and cosmetic purposes.  Nevertheless, the method that they used was pure genius and is commendable. 

The Egyptians, as we all know, were fond of looking good. They were the minds behind several cosmetics that we use today. They even found ways to dye clothes using natural colors to make their aristocrats look ravishing. So, needless to say, they must have had a hand in the development of soap. A document called the Ebers papyrus describes how the Egyptians made soap. They used alkaline salts and plant or animal fats to create a substance similar to soap. Now, this soap was suitable to use on the skin. In fact, it was used to cure skin diseases like sores and rashes. They even used this soap for regular washing.

I guess of all the civilizations, the Romans would be most thankful for the invention of soap. Their bathing methods prior to the invention of soap sound rather painful. They used to first rub their skin with sand, pumice or any other abrasive substance. Then, they would scrape it off with a stick to make sure that no gravel remained on the skin. So, quite obviously, soap was very happily welcomed by the Roman Empire. In fact, in the ruins of Pompeii that was destroyed in 79AD by the volcanic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, a large soap factory was discovered.  The name sapo which is Latin for soap, was also coined in Rome. It appears in Historia Naturalis that was written by Roman writer and naturalist, Pliny the Elder. He makes a note of ‘sapo’ that was made with tallow and ashes. However, in his writing the word ‘sapo’ was used with respect to a product used on the hair. He also seemed quite disapproving of it because he thought that the men from Gaul used it more often that the women! I wonder what Pliny would say if he saw the number of skin care products available for women these days.

There is yet another theory about how soap got its name. Many believe that soap got its name from Mount Sapo. It was in this mountain that animal sacrifices used to take place. Then, the tallow from the animals was mixed with the ashes from the holy fire and some water to make a substance quite similar to soap. Of course, there are no official records of the procedures followed in these sacrifices. This is only a theory that has become very popular across the globe. Of course, going by the face value, this explanation does seem pretty logical.

The real origins of the name ‘soap’ are still widely associated with Latin and some Germanic languages. In Pliny’s records, we also see records of an association between the
