Our friend Carla had been wanting us to have another soapmaking lesson at our house so we got together Saturday with our friend Teresa and a new friend Donna and made two soaps: Tea Tree Lemongrass Avocado and Peppermint Honey Oatmeal. Dave posted on his blog the recipe for the Peppermint Honey Oatmeal here.
You will notice in the above picture that we have the kitchen window open. We do that when we are adding the lye even when it’s cold outside.
Here is the recipe for this soap. I’ll post the other later.
Please refer to the cold process instructions here.
After the soap was poured and put downstairs to wait 24 hours to cut, and cleaning up the kitchen (thank you Donna), we all sat down to Carla’s Coconut Cream pie. Yum! What a way to end a soapmaking afternoon!
