In my experience a lot of people leave their handmade soap gifts on display in their bathroom or where ever for a while before using!
Thanks penelopjane! A "best after date" is a wonderful idea. My coworker is going to add it to a gift basket she's putting together so I'm hoping that her MIL will let it sit somewhere for another couple of weeks before using. I'm also hoping that my coworker will choose some of my cured soaps too.

Unfortunately, this is not true. HP can take longer to cure and be ready as it requires more water/liquid to be used. Regardless, a good cure is required for HP and CP.
