Soap Making

This morning Mum came in so we could make a couple of batches of soap each. I don't know why I don't do this more often, it is so fun!

Here we are waiting for the oils to cool, which didn't take long since it isn't the warmest of days today. We did the making out on the back deck which was warmer than inside and has the bonus of having electricity so we could use the stick blender.

This batch was a tea tree oil one and smells lovely. Actually the whole house smells rather nice.

I poured one of my batches into a orange drink container, If I had some one litre milk containers I would have used those. I will be much better organised next time! My second batch I did with a May Chang scent and green colouring, Mum went with lavender and purple colouring. I also soaked a loofah in some soap, I had read about it and am hoping it turns out.

All going well you will see some bars of soap on here tomorrow!


  1. that's fantastic. I would love to do that one day.
    Now lets see the bars :-)

  2. Hopefully they will cut well today, then 6 weeks of curing! Want to try a goats milk one next.
