Handmade soup is easy and fun craft to make, plus with careful supervision, it’s a great craft for children to try, too. A few simple ingredients and a bit of imagination is all that’s needed. The soap can be bought from craft shops or online for a few pounds.
Here, we’ve used a glycerine soap base that allows for a bright transparent soap, but for a more luxurious bar, you can use shea butter, goat’s milk or cocoa butter base.
We’ve opted for fresh lemon and lavender and fragrant rose soap, but you can experiment with all sorts of scents.
The presentation is what will give this gift an edge so try to source pretty flowers and unusual foliage to add a touch of nature.
