I have posted in another tutorial about how to make my soap. I won't bore you with the details again but if you are interested you can always look at that post...the link is here http://jme71-loudsilence.blogspot.com/2011/11/cold-process-soap-making.html
For this batch I made I wanted to share a few tips that I learned that I just wanted to share. First of all I found a new soap distributor that I am soo please with http://www.brambleberry.com/ they are truly wonderful! I also learned that having your lye water at 125 degrees is a great temp and my soap turned out glorious when I combined the lye water and the fats together!
I also was able to find a place that would sell lavender by the pound! That was glorious! I also just loved being able to have a mold that made my soap bars look so fantastic! Also a new tip that I learned is to spray 91 percent rubbing alcohol on top of my soaps when I am finished pouring that way there are no bubbles. I'm looking forward to doing a new type of soap next week with three different colors in it! I'm also going to start selling my products here locally since when I gave some away for Christmas presents I already have people coming back for more! So we will see where this goes! Have a GREAT day! and here are just a few pics that I love...I adore making soap...not to many more homemade products that I make give me as much joy!
