    I used Kokum butter for the first time today. Used eucalyptus essential oil and textured the top. I love the way it turned out and I can’t wait to cut it with my new multi bar cutter! :) I’m 19 and I’ve only been soaping for a few months, but I’ve found my passion! I love experimenting with new ingredients :)
    68% Olive
    25% Coconut
    5% Kokum butter
    2% Castor

    It's really beautiful Emma. I wish I had started making soap when I was your age!

    Because of a water discount and sodium lactate, I was able to unmold these pretty quickly. I love the way they turned out!! :) And the eucalyptus smells so invigorating. Now they’re ready for their 4-6 week cure!

    There's just something about a creamy white bar of soap, isn't there? Beautiful!
