    Salt Bars Leaking

    Funnily enough, I went out today Relle and the soap is dry, it was dripping yesterday. It has been dry and windy today so maybe that was some of the issue.. It is going to bucket down tomorrow so maybe I will bring it out of the soap work shop and put it here inside somewhere. :-)

    Salt Bars Leaking

    Soap snail trails

    Bizarre, Just the little idiosyncrasies of soap making I guess - I'm in no hurry for it to happen again lol I can't really sell it like that either, I could call it the "ugly but interesting soap"

    Soap snail trails

    Hi folks.. I have made this batch of soap .. olive, coconut, palm oils, shea butter, castor oil and essential oil. and when I cut it up, it looks like little snail trails through it, I have never had it happen before.. the only thing I can think of is I soaped at a too low temp.. I was hoping...
