Homesteaders Soap

This recipe is as simple as they come!  Just like in the pioneer days, this soap is pure water, tallow & lye.  I read that families used to keep their animal fat to give to the soapmaker and then they would recieve bars of soap in return for the ingredients they contributed.  That is, if they didn't make their own! 
This soap can be used as is or can be milled into other delightful recipes.  I used this as a base for lettuce soap with 8 leaves of lettuce right from my garden! 
More to come!
