Who makes their own soap? I do! I bought a book on soap making, I read the do’s & dont’s, wrote down supplies to buy than began! First batch I made was cold process which was recommended for a beginner, that’s me! It was pretty scary working with lye but I had gloves & glasses on, mixed it outside because of the fumes. Cold process worked good but I really didn’t want to wait a month to use it. So the next batch I tried was hot process which is cooked in a crock pot and you can use it right away! I’ll show you some pictures, my soap isn’t very pretty, I’ll call it rustic but I love it!
My rustic soap, I wonder if this is the way it looked when my grandma made it? I bet she would be proud. Thinking about it, I make my own soap, yogurt & butter, I sew, garden and put up vegetables for the winter, hmm.. I’m just like my grandma!
