After two full weeks of cramming my brain full of how to videos and websites on soap making, I took the plunge last Friday night!
My first soap was a simple lard soap. I learned a lot making it... And it did go off pretty smoothly. I am in love with this creamy soap. I used some essential oils, wild orange-Doterra and some vanilla bean with a hint of lavender.
I made a batch of olive oil soap on Sunday, it was equally fun... There was a bit of a learning curve on that batch. But let's just say grating and rebatching soap is not necessarily a bad thing... And a few grates from my soap scraps from Friday and I got a speckled soap. ( not pictured) Very cool!
