Liquid Soap - Take One


This is the result of my first attempt to make liquid soap. I have to admit I was hesitant to make it at first but I got lots of advice from online friends,books and recipes. Last year at The Handcrafted Soapmakers Guild Conference I saw a demonstration and that gave me the confidence to try for myself. I must say that I've learned so many different skills form attending the conferences these past 3 years. The information is invaluable and has been extremely helpful in my business as well as personal life.

This soap is scented with lavender essential oil and lemon essential oil. It Will be used as bath gel, hand soap and dish washing detergent.

  3. Hey Delores, I've been bad at keeping up with blogs. You did it too, how do you like the feel of the soap? I still use mine for *everything* :)
    Did it thicken up for you? Yours looks so creamy compared to mine. The process isn't too bad once you've done it once. I now have many litres of the stuff!

  4. I know what you mean Corrie. I have so many online friends, face to face networking, my business and family life that at times its difficult to keep up with blogging friends but I think about you all often. I guess it takes practice but yes I use it for everything... from dishes to shampoo. Yesterday I learned how to make lotions. When will it end Corrie?
