    • Make sure you are outside or in a well ventilated room. A mask is also recommended and GOOD LUCK! It is so much fun!

  • Wow! The numbers are growing here. LMK what you would like me to make with black soap and I will start formulating.😊

  • Today I was working with some of the leftover soap to make little micellar water tabs! The idea is to have a portable refill for my black soap micellar spray bottles. This is an easy beginner project that can be made with ABS or NABS™ I will be storing these in a little tin.

  • Hi Jen Olson. I am so happy to see you here at the Thermalmermaid Network. I appreciate the opportunity to learn more about how to make authentic North American Black Soap and Thank you for lending us your area of expertise. ~Sherry aka Thermalmermom

    • I am really excited to share everything I know about NABS. Lately it dawned on me that one of the truly special things about this type of black soap is that it is just like a solid body wash! Potassium based soap bars are so much fun to use both in the bath and shower!
