I first made a batch of soap using natural ingredients: palm oil, coconut oil, olive oil, palm kernel flakes, almond oil, fragrance, and of course the dye that makes the colors....to get a big fat, juicy, fantastic bar of soap.
I greatly enjoyed getting to use my brand new soap mold....and I have to say that there will never be a time I stray from freezer paper...which by the way....is hard to find!
This batch of soap made a five lb loaf of soap...now that's a bar of soap!
My lavender soap and lip balm are now available for sale....see my facebook page Homemade Soap Suds which will give you the prices. My cranberry fig sale will be ready to offer to you in four more weeks! Have a GREAT day!
For a complete guide to soap making...I get all supplies from www.brambleberry.com which is where I got this particular recipe. I also have a quick tutorial on soap making at the link http://jme71-loudsilence.blogspot.com/2011/11/cold-process-soap-making.html and another link at http://jme71-loudsilence.blogspot.com/2012/01/homemade-lavender-soap.html I can't wait to try a new gardeners soap soon! Have a marvelous day!
