I wish you could smell and touch the soap because these pictures do not do it justice. I found a youtube video, gathered my supplies, and made soap. It is so simple, and rewarding! The first batch I made is scented with orange blossom essential oil and the send with lemon. So far I only have one mold, the red one in the above picture. It makes twelve, perfectly shaped bars. But you can also line a box with a trash bag and then cut the bars when they are hard, which I also did. You can see, three pictures up, that the cut soap is bigger pieces and then two pictures up is the soap from the mold.
I am out of lye! Or else I would probably be making more. I want to save up and buy some molds, there are really pretty ones on amazon. Ellie and I really like the flower molds.
Have you been wanting to learn something new? You should do it, it really blesses our souls. I also think it shows our kids that if they take the time and energy they can learn anything. I am really thankful for this new hobby.
