This is seriously my new obsession!
It’s like my husband says, “I knew you were addicted when I came out of the room at 11:30 pm and you were making soap. ”
Well, I’m hoping some of you get bit by the soapmaking bug too and try your hand at this recipe I came up with. It only requires four ingredients- canola oil, olive oil, distilled water, and sodium hydroxide (lye). I kept it nice and basic and didn’t add any fragrances or colorants. I just wanted to show you, other beginners, how the process works, and show you what the finished product looks like.
…and here is my latest soap batch. I call it Baby Puff. It is scented with a baby powder fragrance oil and has poppy seeds for exfoliation. I created a mold out of a recycled milk carton.
I can hardly wait to see if it turned out okay once I cut into it! They are just perfect! I love these random soap experiments.
Let me know if you make your own soap or gave my recipe a try! I’d love to know how it turned out!
