How To Make Homemade Soap For Survival

homemade soap

Homemade soap is surprisingly easy to make and is extremely beneficial for survival. After all, it contains natural ingredients and can help prevent you getting sick. Not to mention, soap-making is a valuable survival skill you can use your entire life.

However, it’s imperative that preppers learn this skill and stock up on homemade soap immediately. That’s because there are people out there that want to put heavy restrictions on soap makers & sellers all over America

Keep reading to learn all about these dangers, plus…

How To Make Homemade Soap For Survival

Possible Upcoming Restrictions

People have been making and selling soap for many years. Unfortunately, this is causing many large companies to take notice – and to retaliate.

Homemade soap comes with all-natural ingredients, and without the hefty price tag from many commercial soap makers. As a result, many people have been choosing homemade soap rather than purchasing from companies like Johnson & Johnson and L’Oreal.

That’s why many big soap manufacturers want to pass legislation targeting homemade soap makers/sellers. If this legislation passes, the FDA will aggressively police the ingredients found in homemade soap. They will also raise production costs higher and higher, forcing small soap makers to go out of business.

We don’t know what will happen on this issue. But one thing is clear – now is the time to get in on this industry and learn the survival skill of soapmaking. That way, if legislation DOES pass, preppers are ready and prepared with plenty of homemade soap to go around.

Survival Uses For Homemade Soap

Homemade soap is incredibly beneficial for survival. For one, it contains natural ingredients (rather than artificial dyes, chemicals and more). It also helps prevent bacteria and illness, and keeps you and your family squeaky clean.

However, there are other survival uses for homemade soap besides cleanliness. For one, it’s a great way to make money. When SHTF, rules will go out the window. And you can bet plenty of people didn’t stock up on soap when the time comes. You can take advantage of this by selling your soap for a hefty price.

Soap is also an excellent bartering item. If you’re in need of certain survival supplies, you can always barter with homemade soap to get the items you need to survive.

Finally, homemade soap can be very beneficial for stress management. That’s because you can add essential oils, butters and natural scents to your soap like lavender, chamomile, orange, almond and lemongrass. A few deep breaths of this homemade soap can help you de-stress and think clearly in a stressful situation.

How To Make Homemade Soap

Ingredients:

  • 3.1 oz Lye
  • Fragrance (i.e: Essential Oils)
  • Vinegar (to pour on potential lye burns)
  • Rubber gloves
  • Safety goggles
  • Rubber Apron
  • 6.8 oz Distilled water
  • Electric stick blender
  • Plastic soap mold with mold top.
  • 24.4 oz Olive oil
  • Wax paper
Instructions

Put on the safety googles, apron and rubber gloves. Pour the distilled water into a bowl. Then add the lye to the distilled water. (NOTE: ALWAYS do these steps in order. If you add distilled water to lye, it can explode!). Stir with a long spoon until the mixture becomes clear (takes a few minutes).

Pour the olive oil into a large container. Now add the lye/distilled water mixture to the olive oil, and mix with an electric mixer until the liquid “comes to trace.” This is a soap-making term. It means when the soap drips off the mixer, it will leave an indentation (or “trace”) on the top of the soap. This is how you know it’s ready.

Add the fragrance (as much or as little as you like), and blend into the mixture. Just make sure when you’re done it still comes to trace.

Now pour the mixture into the soap mold, and cover with the mold top. Insulate the outside of the mold with multiple towels, and store in a dry, warm place for 24 hours.

Pop out the soap bars from the mold, and place them on wax paper. Let them sit for 3-4 weeks (just make sure to turn them occasionally).

Here’s a video of the soap-making process:

Mayorkas in Hot Seat For Allegedly Encouraging Illegals to Vote for Biden

secretary-alejandro-mayorkas-department-homeland-security1

During a recent congressional budget hearing, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas found himself under intense scrutiny by Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC) concerning a deeply troubling allegation. The Heritage Foundation’s Oversight Project reported the discovery of a flyer, purportedly from Resource Center Matamoros, which brazenly encourages migrants to vote for President Joe Biden, promising, “We need another four years of his term to stay open.” This inflammatory material, allegedly found by independent journalists in Mexico and reported by Muckraker, raises grave concerns about the integrity of our electoral process.

The flyer, still unverified by mainstream media outlets and missing from the Resource Center Matamoros’s official resources, points to a potential scandal of significant proportions. The implications are severe—suggesting a concerted effort to manipulate U.S. elections by influencing the migrant population, a group explicitly ineligible to participate in our voting system.

Rep. Bishop confronted Mayorkas directly: “The Heritage Foundation Oversight Project has released this document that is allegedly a flyer distributed by a non-governmental organization in Mexico called the Resource Center Matamoros … which is said to read, in part, if translated, ‘Reminder to vote for President Biden when you are in the United States. We need another four years of his term to stay open,'” illustrating a critical lapse in border security and immigration enforcement under the current administration.

Mayorkas’s response was both dismissive and inadequate, stating that “individuals who are not citizens of the United States cannot vote in federal elections” and claiming that DHS does not oversee election enrollments but merely enforces border policies. However, this response starkly highlights the core issue—the Biden administration’s lax enforcement and oversight policies, which have allowed millions, including two million undocumented ‘got-aways,’ to potentially exploit loopholes in the electoral registration process.

Secretary Mayorkas and the Biden administration must be held accountable for their role in what appears to be a flagrant disregard for the laws that safeguard both our borders and our ballots. This incident is not an isolated blip but a symptom of a broader, more disturbing trend under Secretary Mayorkas’s DHS: a deliberate softening of immigration policies that seem designed to favor political over practical interests.

It’s imperative for the integrity of our democratic process that thorough investigations are conducted. If migrants are indeed being instructed, implicitly or explicitly, to support a particular political outcome, such actions must be met with the full force of the law. We must demand more than lackluster assurances from our leaders; we need concrete actions and transparent accountability to restore faith in our immigration system and electoral integrity.

Biden’s Blunders: Scripted Leadership in Crisis Times?

arlington-va-usa-may-29-2023

Once again, President Biden has been caught on camera, not trusting his own words during crucial moments. During a recent Oval Office meeting with Iraq’s Prime Minister, while the world reels from a violent missile and drone attack by Iran on Israel, Biden couldn’t step away from his pre-written scripts.

Photographs reveal that Biden, aged 81, resorted to a detailed cheat sheet, which embarrassingly included all-caps stage directions for pausing, allowing for translation. This was during his first public address since the devastating attack on Israel over the weekend. The contrast was stark next to Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia’a Al-Sudani, who spoke freely, without the aid of notes.

Instead of addressing the nation live while missiles were still threatening lives, the White House chose to “call a lid” early in the evening, opting only to release staged photos of Biden in the Situation Room. It was only after the immediate crisis had eased that Biden communicated with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to express U.S. support, and convened a discussion with G7 leaders—again, following the script too cautiously, reportedly urging Netanyahu to limit Israel’s response, seemingly more worried about political optics than decisive leadership.

In public, Biden stated, “The United States is committed to Israel’s security…We are committed to a cease-fire that will bring the hostages home and prevent the conflict from spreading further.” Yet, these words, read from his script, now ring hollow, reflecting a pattern of relying on scripted safety nets even in supposedly spontaneous discussions.

This tendency to lean heavily on pre-written prompts was noted not only in moments of international crisis but also in less formal settings like private fundraisers, causing discomfort among his own supporters, as per reports from Axios.

As crises unfold, the leader of the free world should be expected to address his nation and the world with conviction and authenticity, not hide behind carefully curated words. The frequent appearance of Biden’s cheat sheets raises concerning questions about his ability to lead through unscripted challenges—where real leadership is tested not by the ability to follow a script, but to speak from the heart and adapt with strength.

Migrant Invaders Brazenly Charge at Swimmers in Speedboat

juarez-mexico-12212022-hundreds-migrants-wait

In a blatant affront to American sovereignty, a dozen illegal immigrants executed a dangerous and illegal invasion of our shores, arriving at a California beach via speedboat with reckless disregard for the safety of Americans enjoying their leisure time. One surfer narrowly escaped harm as the vessel tore through the water at high speeds, a clear symbol of the contempt these lawbreakers hold for our laws and our people.

This latest episode in Carlsbad, a mere 30 miles north of San Diego, is a chilling reminder of the organized lawlessness that is being orchestrated across our borders. Once ashore, these illegal entrants scurried toward luxury vehicles, suggesting a level of premeditation and support that borders on an invasion facilitated by criminal networks.

Compounding the audacity of this episode was the abject failure of local law enforcement to respond, leaving law-abiding citizens to fend for themselves. Such incidents underscore a terrifying erosion of law and order, signaling to criminals everywhere that our borders are open for exploitation.

This incident is not an anomaly but a stark representation of a broader crisis fueled by a border policy that might as well hang a welcome sign for criminals and opportunists. The alarming influx of illegal crossings, particularly in the San Diego sector—where nearly 7,000 breaches were reported last week alone—is a direct result of deliberate inaction and misguided policies that invite chaos and endanger American lives.

The economic and social strain this unchecked immigration inflicts on our communities is unsustainable. The closure of local migrant shelters, once hemorrhaging millions of taxpayer dollars monthly, is a testament to the fiscal burden imposed by these continuous waves of illegal entrants. This burden has now shifted to our airports and bus stations, turning them into makeshift shelters and degrading the quality of life for residents and tourists alike.

It is evident that our current administration lacks the will to address this crisis effectively. The projected figures are a dire warning: with over 8 million people potentially on our streets, including two million with criminal intentions, the situation is nothing short of a national emergency.

Congress must act with urgency to secure our borders and overhaul an immigration system that has been exploited far too long. We need robust enforcement of our immigration laws, substantial penalties for those who violate them, and an end to policies that encourage illegal entry into our country. The time for tolerance of this disorder is over. The safety, security, and sovereignty of the United States must be enforced rigorously and without apology. We must protect American citizens and the integrity of our nation.
