Hi there. I'm a newbie from Finland. I decided to try soapmaking mainly because I was bored.

I just managed to complete my first (somewhat succesful) shot at soapmaking, using wood ash lye and beef tallow. Has anyone else done that? Anyway, I threw in a bit too much peppermint oil, and now the stench of the stuff is sickening. I'm glad I only made a few ounces of it.

Hello and welcome! :)

My great grandmother made her soap from wood ash and waste fats.....great soap for cleaning but it stunk to high heaven sometimes.....she had 11 kids and was a widow, so rancid fat was reused.

Please keep us posted about your wood ash experiments...I for one am really curious. :)
