This is my first post in this community though i've been in it for years and have always enjoyed reading the crafty projects you all share!
I started making soap when i was little, i made those melt and pour things you could buy in kits or at the craft store.
I always wanted to try making soap from scratch though. It seemed waaay more satisfying to completely create it, instead of basically just remolding it.
While i love the look you can get with melt and pour, i love the science in Cold Process Soap Making!!
It rocks, i love it. lye is dangerous so it just makes me feel like a bad ass, too :D( Collapse )
I REALLY hope you enjoyed looking at my soaps! Straigh up soap porn, i know. haha!
Let me know if soap isn't allowed?
I make it all from scratch using mostly Olive oil, coconut oil, sometimes hemp and sweet almond oils.
I also add fragrance, mix in the oxide colorings, and then have to cut and trim each bar as well as wrap it up! Lots of time and work in these babies. :D
