Sandy and I made soap today. We started this back in March, making several batches. Then due to illness in her family we are just getting back into the soap. We need to get some made for Christmas presents. It will be wonderful for Christmas. We made a double batch of lavender and a single batch of orange. It will take about 2 weeks to cure. Then we are planning to make some cinnamom-orange and plain cinnamon. Very Christmasy.
