Soap milling, also called French Milling, is an easy traditional process for enhancing cakes or bars of soaps. Milling allows you to add a variety of healing, soothing, or cleansing ingredients, such as extra fats or oatmeal or essential oils, to your soaps. I like to make hand milled soaps to give as gifts as well as to add luxury to our daily lives.
Dryer sachets are a frugal, practical, organic alternative to commercial dryer sheets. I usually hand-sew mine because it takes less time to thread a needle and get sewing than to pull out my sewing machine. I recommend a French seam, particularly if you sew by hand, to give your seam more strength.
