You cannot make soap without a chemical. You either need sodium hydroxide or lye. However, lye can be made from wood ash [but it takes a year].

There are plants in nature that have saponates in them, such as yucca, buckeye, soapnuts, soapwort, etc... Check with an herbalist in your area to see what grows locally.
