Under the European Solidarity Corps project, our volunteers have created a creativity club and every week they implement different kind of activities. last week they tried to make homemade soap and the result was very impressive
Celie, a volunteer from France is the leader of creativity club and she tells more about the homemade soap.
Why should you make handmade soap ?
The most common reasons for making handmade soap are:
- Save money: “making nice soap is the same cost as buying cheap soap at the store. Making basic soap is cheaper than buying it.” Katie Shaw
- Get a superior product: industrial soap uses many irritating products… It’s not good for the skin, but a handmade one is really good and natural.
- Have fun: If you like baking, this activity is for you! First, You start with a basic recipe and then customize the colour, design, and fragrance. Perfect for friends afternoon!
So what do you think? Will you make soap at home too?
Celie joined us as a volunteer in September 2020. We are able to host her under the European Solidarity Corps project. it is a funding programme of the European Union that creates opportunities for young people to volunteer, work, train and run their own solidarity projects that benefit communities around Europe.
