Default Hello hello hello!

Hi, everyone! I am very new to soap making, but my goal is to eventually start selling! I've only been at it for about a month. I've made two CP batches, but since they're both still curing I have no idea how they have turned out yet. My first batch was 100% lard. My second was olive oil, coconut oil, and castor oil, but I can't recall what percentages I used.

I know I have a lot of work to do before I start selling, but my goal is to have beautiful, luxury soaps. I am excited to learn as much about soap as possible and am interested in whatever tips, tricks, recipes, and advice you're willing to offer!

Yes! I had 11 but I'm down to 9. I think the bobcat I spotted yesterday might be the culprit. Circle of life!
