It's been awhile but this new obsession is taking over.
Batch # 2 This batch is a plain batch with some Bamboo fragrance. It was a free sample from Brambleberry. My supplier... Soap supplies.

Did you know that Lye is used in the production of bombs and Crystal meth?? Neither did I till I started making soap. Making soap is a chemical reaction too. But what fun I'm having. The possible combinations are endless.

Batch #3 is an all Olive Oil soap. It's called Castile soap. It's supposed to be the best soap for you.

The only problem with it is it has to cure for 3-6 months before you can use it. Can't wait to try it.

Batch #4 is my favorite so far.
I used a red palm oil to get the color and the addition of canned pumpkin and pumpkin spice fragrance oil makes this a bar good enough to eat.
This is it going through "Gel Phase" which is a step in soap making. Love my new loaf molds.

This is it all cut up for curing. Seriously doesn't it look like pumpkin custard except in block form. Wish you could smell it. It smells just like pumpkin pie.

The "curing" area.

My family will be the cleanest is the county.
Happy Weekend.
