METHOD #2

You don't need to pay high prices for fancy, scented soaps; you can make your own fragrant concoctions with some simple ingredients and a little know-how.

Steps:

1. Decide what kind of dried herbs you'd like to use. Good choices are lavender for its lovely fragrance, comfrey for its ability to soothe irritated skin, and mint for its invigorating properties. Experiment with your favorite herbs to find your favorite combination.
2. Assemble the other items you will need: the plainest soap you can find (plain glycerine soap is best, but Ivory or another mild, unscented soap will do), a soap mold, and a double boiler.
3. Coat your soap mold with vegetable oil.
4. Heat 1/3 cup water in a double boiler to a simmer.
5. Crumble 3 to 4 tablespoons of herbs into the water.
6. Take the double boiler off the heat and allow the herbs to steep for 15 minutes.
7. Return the pan to the heat and add the bar of soap, cut into small pieces.
8. When the soap is melted, pour the mixture into the soap mold.
9. Leave at room temperature until the soap has hardened (it will be a bit softer than the bar you started with).
10. Open the mold and remove the soap.
