Thought I would share with you all my big soaping day since I kinda went AWOL for a while....
I got going on soaping today considering I have a small town show to sell at the end of April. I looked at my inventory and thought it might make sense to make a few batches.
I ended up making Rosemary Mint, Sandalwood Vanilla, Oatmeal and lastly, Goatsmilk Oatmeal.
I started out chopping up some baby mint leaves that I had just harvested from my garden a few seconds before.
I added to the pile some corsely grinded rosemary that I took out my aggression on in the mortel & pestle...
Here it is all nicely poured into the mold. This particular mold holds 6 pounds of soap which makes 21 wonderfully grand bars. They are about 5-6 ounces each.
Although I didn't get beginning pictures of the next soaps, I did manage to get two of the Sandalwood Vanilla soaps in the mold. By the time I got to the next batch, the light was going away and my list of to do's for the day was not getting any smaller, but the time surely was.
I will take some pictures of them tomorrow when I unmold them and when I cut them. I love seeing other soapers' pictures of their soaps and how they are made, I hope you love seeing my soap pictures.
