Two posts in two days!
I just tried out my first batch of soap bars! I found a super simple recipe to start with that only called for lye, distilled water, olive oil, and optional Essential Oils. I went with DoTerra's Citrus Bliss and Lime... Smells so good!
It was a bit intimidating working with lye but the process was smoother than I thought.
Hand blenders make the process easy and light on the wrist. Huge respect to our ancestors who made soap without modern conveniences! (Bucket list item for the future: make my own lye just to know how to do it)
I forgot to take a picture of the mold before I filled it but they have flower imprints on the front.
I'll post pictures when I remove them from the mold later this week. I have a shipment with more supplies arriving this Tuesday and will also be trying out Lemongrass Bergamot Shampoo Bar and basic lotion.
