Soap Plant - Chlorogalum pomeridianum

  Here's a different way to make soap. I haven't tried this yet, but I find this fascinating. I am so intrigued by this plant that I would consider growing my own if I could find some seeds or bulbs. This plant grows a nut like fruit (although it isn't in the nut family) that is used like soap. It even has some of the ingredients that soap has, built into the plant. How amazing! The Native Americans used this plant for soap. How cool is that?
