It’s been one of our missions here to share homemade soap recipes with tips and tricks on how to keep your cleansing routine natural and healthy. It’s fairly obvious that making your own soap comes with a slew of benefits in the way of skincare and overall wellness, but today I want to explain a little more about why this is something I love to do and not just a practical health choice.
The transition from regular eating to clean eating was pretty rocky for me. My main issue in the beginning was that health food tasted like cardboard compared to everything I actually enjoyed. The problem, I came to realize, was that I didn’t know enough about how to use whole food flavors in my recipes, and that clean eating didn’t mean no longer utilizing my tastebuds.
I have a hard time staying focused on one hobby at a time. I love dabbling in about 10 projects at once. I currently have soap curing, pallets in the garage waiting to become furniture, spray paint on hand for finishing my deck upcycle, and random ingredients (like Himalayan pink salt) in my pantry waiting to be featured in recipes I have yet to create.
I think it’s fairly common to make healthy eating resolutions in January, and then watch in horror as they go down the drain when Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day and Easter hit. Those don’t seem like big eating holidays, which is why we all figure we’re out of the dog house post-New Years — but then the boxes of chocolate, fancy dinner dates, Irish soda bread, corned beef, Easter ham and everything buttery, sugary, salty and fried makes itself absolutely necessary… again.
