I must say that this was a WONDERFUL and EASY project! I have three batches of cold process soap now under my belt! PHEW! I had two batches turn out gloriously and one HUGE failure! So, when I tried this I felt like a bit of a cheater:( It was too easy...as most melt and pours are...but truly smells SOO good and leaves my hands gloriously soft!
I wanted to share a couple of things with you in my lessons of making homemade soap. First of all...this time I bought a silicone mold...it holds two lbs of soap and was PERFECT for this project. I didn't have to line the mold and it popped out beautifully...then I just used my Pampered Chef crinkle cutter to cut my soap! I'm getting ahead of myself though!
First I went to my Hobby Lobby and I strolled down the candle, soap making aisle and to my surprise they had the soap supplies 30 percent off...so I decided to pick up the goats milk melt and pour! You take the melt and pour goats milk and cut it up and then put in a microwave safe bowl for 40 seconds and stir...never more than that because you don't want it to scorch...then..you just keep doing that until its all melted down...then .I let the magic happen!
I'm totally excited about a new soap supplier that I found called www.brambleberry.com May I just tell you that I LOVE them and their fragrances are WONDERFUL! I bought this amazing fragrance from them....forgive me for some of these pics...I have to use my cell phone camera nowadays...LONG story there...a new camera will be coming some day...maybe:) The fragrance is oatmeal, milk and Honey since I couldn't manage to take a straight shot!
