    There are a number of techniques, and it seems like they differ in one major way, which is whether or not they use lye or premade soap base.  The lye method is complicated, and a detailed how-to along with a video is included in the second citation.  If you want to use soap base, this is a great recipe:

    Shea Butter Soap (from Soothing Soaps by Sandy Maine)

    2 cups glycerin soap base, melted in a double boiler
    2 tbsp shea butter, melted separately
    Several drops of your favorite essential oil (optional)

    Mix well, pour into molds (you can use regular food storage containers), and cool.

    That recipe and more is in the link in the first citation.  A kid-friendly recipe is here, as well, if that’s what you’re looking for:
