One homestead skill I’ve been so excited to learn is making handmade soaps like pumpkin hand soap.
A blog I adore for soap making and soap recipes is the Nerdy Farm Wife which is why I’m thrilled today to have Jan Berry offer this Simple Pumpkin Soap Recipe from her latest book Simple & Natural Soapmaking. This book is gorgeous and contains amazing recipes and techniques.
Pumpkin Soap Recipe
Loaded with vitamin A and other nourishing nutrients, real pumpkin puree gives this soap its natural yellow-orange color. Both homemade puree and canned pumpkin work equally well; if neither is available, try using butternut squash instead.
