|My makeshift slab mold. |
It is a freezer paper lined Kirkland Maranara Sauce box from my last Costco trip.
I'm afraid the whole process was just a bit overwhelming to me. So I didn't get any pictures during the process. I will try it again sometime soon and get pictures. But for now you will have to be satisfied with my description and with finished pictures.
I used my normal soap recipe. It is a good recipe and usually moves slow enough, as long as I don't add a fast moving fragrance oil. Floral fragrance oils are notorious for moving fast and seizing. So I decided to make a solid colored slab and to fragrance it with a nice Lilac fragrance oil. I soaped cool, with only a slight water discount, and I poured at thin trace. It only barely starting ricing, and stayed pretty smooth. I used Lilacs in Bloom from WSP. It smells soooo good!! I love lilacs! And it is pretty realistic fragrance oil, at least out of the bottle it is. We will see if it holds in soap. So far, now three days old, the soap still smells amazing!
I am very happy with how these turned out. They do need to cure for at least a month, and these will be for sale then. But if you would like me to reserve one for you, message me, or email me.
