Homemade Nutmeg Soap

A quick and easy way to make your own Christmas soap is to reuse pieces of old soap and add some festive scent.
White unscented soap
1. Grate the soap, and put it in a bowl.
2. Heat the soap over a bowl of boiling water.
3. Add a few teaspoons of nutmeg according to how strong you want the scent to be.
3. Once soft and malleable, take it off the heat, and meld the soap together into a ball.
4. Divide the soap and squash it into cupcake moulds.
5. Bake in the oven at 180 ༠C/ 160 ༠C fan/350 ༠F/4 Gas until they begin to bubble up like muffins.
6. Allow to cool.
7. Pop the soap out of the moulds and add a little water so that they lather up and you can reshape them.
8. Allow to set and dry, and then use like normal soap.
