I made some M&Ps for Christmas gifts and I was hooked! I ordered all my supplies (small town here so no local supplier) and did my first CP this week! I used a very basic recipe from the Soap Queen (3 oils) and added some EOs and turmeric for color and then some orange peel powder. It worked! It's not the prettiest thing, but it gelled and everything. Then I made another batch of the same basic recipe with different EOs and some ground cloves and cardomom (no color this time.) I didn't want it to gel, but it did anyway, and that's ok. I've been using a loaf mold. I'm planning on another batch tonight and I'll use a 6 bar silicone mold this time. I'm going to add a little green sea clay, some EO and some dried herbs.
