Sooooo it's been awhile since I whipped out the supplies and made soap (far to long). Recently I got the urge to start making it again even though I still have tons left over from my last adventure.
One of the reasons I put it on hold was because it never really took off in my shop, even though I sold some locally to some wonderful ladies I was very discouraged. That and I was being overwhelmed by soap everywhere. So I gave most of it away to friends and family.
The urge came back to me not to long ago, although I can't remember why. I decided to test out goats milk soap and order some essential oils to make more scents (unlike before where I only had a few). The oils are on their way (hopefully they get here soon!) and I tried out a couple batches with goats milk last night. The first batch went very well, then I got a little overconfident and decided to try out a second using goats milk aloe vera and honey! It was a lot of fun making it but when I cut it up this morning it was still a little watery, kind of gooey on the outside but super dry and hard on the inside. I have NEVER had this happen so I have no idea what is going on!!! It's a very beautiful soap and smells really good also (it actually looks kind of like pumpkin pie). I just hope it turns out well and I don't have any problems with it.
But then again you live and learn right??
Batch 1-Goats Milk Soap
Batch 2-Goats Milk, Aloe Vera and Honey Soap
I can't wait to try this soap out! And eventually have it up in my shop :)
Agg only a couple more days to finish up my pdf!! It's going well so far so I have high hopes. The pictures are all set and so is the pattern...I just hope I can figure out how to put it all together!
Off to get ready and brave the snow! Not to bad right now but I'm sure it'll get worse.
