Default Salt Free salt bar - EDIT w/ PICS including Mr. Grumpy

Earlier conversation gave info on salt bars and I decided to go ahead and make a batch. Well, didn't happen. As I started gathering things together the recipe just didn't suit me, even for a "hold my beer while I mix this up" batch.
Decided a pot of coffee might help and one thing led to another. I have a bag of really crappy coffee that I was going to return (yes, it was that bad) but decided to use it in some soap. One thing led to another and now it smells like a chocolate peppermint kiss. Threw some of the grounds in for good measure.
I'm out of molds for a couple of days, the fridge is full, so it looks like I might get some wood butchering time in.

I'm having fun. Here's a picture. Hope it turns out. BO, CO OO, LL*,Castor, a little sugar and a few grounds. Maybe a little more than a little but not a lot.

*Lovely Lard -



No matter - freezer, fridge, still trying to gel. Oils too warm to begin? I did read this morning in another thread that room temp was better for non gel. Will try that today.
I'm not unhappy with how it turned out. It is still a bit sticky but getting better. Time will heal. Now back to the drawing board which must be one of my favorite places. I keep going back to it.






And of course, for all you kitty lovers, here is Mr. Grumpy after her morning nap which precedes her pre lunch nap.

Looks great in the mould! Maybe your next soap will be a salt one!

I'm biting my tongue trying to remain civil and not make some smart xxxxx comment concerning the brain function or lack thereof.

Yep, BO is babassu oil. I unmolded it today and cut it. Sticky, and even though it began life in the freezer and fridge, it still has partially gelled center, although not as large as my first castile.

Pics to follow. The living room smells like a great big hunk of peppermint chocolate.

Bumpalump - Nick name given to coworker for the rolls on the back of his neck that resembled speed bumps. He had a good sense of humor. All of that to tell you that I put the new pics on the original post. Did you expect just "bump"? Didn't think so.
