It looks and smells like soap so far……….

I took a little bit that was stuck inside the mould and rubbed it with water (wearing rubber gloves) and it produced a lather.  So I think it has worked but now I have to wait a month!  The ylang ylang smelled really strong yesterday but it is now more subtle.

  1. Oooh, looks good. Think I’m a little afraid to make soap. Seems like you need a load of ingredients and I’m sure to fail at it. Would like to know how it goes in a months time 🙂

    • Very few ingredients actually. I used – Vegetable fat (Trex), caustic soda (lye), spring water, and ylang ylang fragrance oil. And that’s it. You need a mould (anything plastic will do), rubber gloves, and two thermometers. All the fancy stuff comes later!

  2. Looks good enough to eat! What has got you interested in soapmaking? Is it something you’d been meaning to have a go at for a while?
