    Please, Make Your Own Soap

    Please, Make Your Own Soap

    My first batch of soap, ever, was a total disaster. I didn't measure anything correctly, mixed it in a five gallon Home Depot bucket, and didn't put any fragrance in because I thought I was still going to be able to smell the cocoa butter after it cured. I poured the thick, over-traced mess into PVC pipe with aluminum foil rubber banded to the bottom (big no no!) and thought it would be fine. The end was a hard as rock swiss cheese looking puck! Now, three years later, I have honed the skill. The picture in this article is of bars I made earlier this year, having learned how to properly use fragrance oils, micas, and piping tools.
