Soap Making

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.

I make hand made soap also! It is such an addicting hobby, almost as bad as quilting! Please be careful with the cinnamon! It is a known irritant! And if you bake your soap, in the molds, at 275 degrees, let it sit overnight, take from the molds and let it sit another 24 hours, it's ready to use!
