Just had to post this. This was actually supposed to be a 1 lb. test batch of oatmeal/honey soap made room temperature cold process, but w/out melting any of the hard(solid) oils ahead of time. I wasn't expecting it to work or expected to have problems when I added the honey to the mixture. But everything went quite well and I produced a lovely, moisturizing soap. How about that??? When I want things to work out perfect they never do and when I'm expecting the worse I get something pretty nice. It's all in the cosmos I tell you. Either the full moon at work or Murphy's law. Glad it worked in my favor this time though ;-)

Don't have time to post right now, just wanted to share my newest batch of soap scented with Apricot-Papaya and a little Patchouli. I'm not terribly happy with the way the colors came out, and it's a bit greasy right now but that could easily change after the 4-6 week cure. Let's see what happens. I will be giving this soap away in a Spring Swap that I am participating in. Oh what fun, my first swap!! ;-)
