Here's what you'll need:
1 cup of grated soap (from a bar of soap)
10 cups of water
1 tablespoon of vegetable grade glycerin (I got mine from Amazon)
Grate enough soap to make 1 cup of shavings. I had a lot of small soap samples from Goat Milk Stuff, and I was super happy to have found a way to put these samples to use. You might have some travel size soaps, or a bar you're not using - anything will work.
Get a rather large pot, and pour in 10 cups of water. Place this on the stove top and put it on about medium. Then pour in the cup of grated soap. You'll want to get the water warm enough to dissolve the soap, but not boil.
Stir a bit, and let the grated soap melt in the water. Then pour in 1 tablespoon of glycerin.
Let the liquid cool overnight, and then use a funnel to pour the soap in to a pump dispenser. You'll notice that it goes from being fairly runny to a thicker consistency. Mine took 3 days to really "set" and now feels quite luxurious. I also added some essential oil for scent.
