Howdy you crafty folks! Are the any other soap makers out there? I thought this would be a fun place to trade ideas and techniques.
Tell me your favorite methods, your best soap disaster stories, your favorite soap recipes.
To kick things off, I started making my own soap because I have fairly sensitive skin. Once I told my family, they all wanted to try some too. They all fell in love and quickly became my first loyal customers. Then my friends started joining in too. Heheh. Now, as soon as I make a batch, it's gone! haha.
My soaps are all natural, organic when possible, and completely vegan. To color my soaps, I rely on clays, powdered herbs, and the raw color of various plant oils (like unrefined hemp seed oil). I also make all natural lip balms, bath salts, salt and sugar scrubs, body balms, solid shampoos. My basic motto is: If I can't make it 100% natural, I won't make it.
My favorite soap making method is CPOP (cold process oven process).
