Really great work there! Are you new to soaping? If you are, burping the stick blender means dunking it in your batter and tap it several times on the bottom of your bowl until there's no more air bubbles popping up. And after pouring into my mold, I'm really aggressive in settling it. I pick it up like 3-4" from the counter and drop it.
Love your colors and cutting style.

Hi, air bubbles? Are you running your stick blender. On the lowest setting?? They don't seem to be made by trace. Just my 2 cents.
Thank you for the tips I will try this. I have my stick blender on medium and I have been wondering about this about the speed.

This is my essential lavender oil soap it smells wonderful the soap is great but I'm not fond of the pink and purple pigments they look almost the same color but I guess they look alright for lavender but the pink is purple. At least I got the top smooth no more air bubbles lol.

A day later and the lavender soap looks much better but funny thing is that the pink turned purple after gel faze but the little bit of scrapping I had that I left in the cold garage stayed pink. I guess not all colours do good going through gell faze.

So thrilled my boys or should I say men lol Will be so pleased to get their banana soap for Christmas after all. They will just have to wait a few weeks to use it 😆. If you would like recipe I wrote it down in the showcase gallery under mashed banana 🍌 soap!

I just wanted to mention one funny little thing my kitten she helps me make all my soaps lol she is a little soap 👸 queen lol. She sits up top my shoulders and cuddles around my neck as she watches me mix and pour all my oils and colors and FOs. Dont worry when it's time to do my lye that part is in the garage by my self but every thing else I let her help out lol she is so 😍 cute.
