It really isn't as difficult as we might think. I always though it is very difficult to make one, but after I learned it, it is really doable. Of course, you might need to practice more and some techniques in order to make a very beautiful bar of soap, but if it's just to make a very basic soap, I think you should be able to do it. You can check out Soap Queen and look for Cold Process Soap. Just try to search for the very basic soap first. Perhaps you can find more videos in YouTube for beginners too.
