OK I am a tad giddy about this.....I have been making bath and body products for about 15 years...and I have always wanted to try cold process soap but knew that when my kiddoes were little it was not the right time. Also not really having a safe dedicated space also made it not the right time. I have taken over 4 years off of making ALL bath and body products and I guess being in a new state, new house, and in my very own designated Star Hitched Wagon™ "lab"....well I am feeling brave.
(getting my new mold all ready)
(soap poured and now keeping it warm)
(after 24 hours here it is - it actually worked - I made cold process soap)
( just a little soda ash and some slight cracking - which I've read was probably caused from cooling to quickly - note for next go around more insulating)
I think it's beautiful - it smells divine!!! Lavender Essential oil ( my fav)! Oh and I used an oatmeal "milk" instead of just plain water - that explains the lavender buds and oats on top!!!
Now to wait a whole 4 - 6 weeks while it cures. I will let you know then just how wonderful (I hope) it is!
