Soap Making Lessons...

I finally did it!  I've been wanting to learn to make soap for a long time now and the other day Jenn Beachy kindly invited me for a lesson.  We had a lot of fun and I know a little more than I did before, but not much.  I still wouldn't want to try this alone.  As you see, it takes a lot of ingredients you maybe wouldn't have on hand normally.

and then this "red devil lye" is a little scary.  Please listen to the pros on this one.

It requires expensive essential oils of your choice...

and many different trays, bowls, cups, a scale that weighs things out by the ounce...etc....  many many tools.

Here's some of the pretties we added.

Two days later, I went back for a lesson in cutting it up.  Soap like this needs a couple days to set up.

Here's me, the professional at work.  smile.

Look at those beauties...   This is the Wake-Up Bar.  It has lavender oil and flower heads in it as well as mint leaves and poppy seeds.  Also this one has tea tree in it so it is good for your complexion.

And this pretty brown bar is called Oatmeal -n- Honey .
It has oatmeal and honey as the name would reveal as well as lavender and patchouli oils...Posted by Picasa


  1. Mmm, I would love some of that soap! Looks like a project that would be lots of fun with a friend, but alone - not so much. Happy scrubbing! :-)

  2. Soap making is fun the way it looks. Glad you posted it.

  3. You got Jay hooked on homemade soap. :-)
