Finally made time to make soap. 8 batches down hope to get 8 more tomorrow. Feels good to get back into the swing of things.

I took a bubble bath. We have been fighting the "crud" at our house and I think I finally face defeat. I have a show in 2 weeks that I have been trying to get organized for. I bought 6 long and shallow totes to haul soap in - the most soap I have brought to a show. Chris has been busy making more trays for the display table. I have a few batches I need to get done for my soap of the month club, and a few custom orders before I start packing the soap lab. Move date is officially May 12!

Just bit the bullet and bought a whole bunch of butters and oils to play with. Shea Butter, Babassu Oil, Mango Butter, Jojoba Oil, Argan Oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Neem Oil. And Polyglycerol-3 Beeswax, which apparently is a nice beeswax alternative that prevents graininess.

I've used jojoba, argan, meadowfoam and neem directly on my face and I really like them all, so I have plans for making some lotion bars with them for personal use (very light on the neem for obvious reasons). Babassu is for trying that 50/50 deodorant recipe. And I'm definitely going to play around with a dandelion salve once the weeds start blooming.

I've been pouring over the Swifty Crafty Monkey blog, it's opening up a whole other world for me!
