Hi! I have been making soap for many years now. Unfortunately you can not make handmade soap without lye. What you can do, is purchase what is called Melt & Pour soap which is usually a block of clear or white glycerin based soap that you melt in your microwave, add fragrance and color to it, then pour into moulds. If you want to make it from scratch, you will need the lye. Sorry! Good luck and hope you will get to making some :)

You can go to and get recipes. Also sign up for their newsletters. You can chose the ones you want to receive. They send out lots of info on soaps. The ones you want are the melt and pour soaps. They don't require lye. You can find products needed online or at your fave crafts store. The oils can be found at health stores such as Nature's Outlet or GNC.
