    Hi everyone
    I'm new to soap making and am hoping to develop my skills, have been watching a lot (maybe too much):p YouTube video's of soap making and decided to give it a go. Pretty good results so far though. Interested in both CP and HP soap.

    I'm in the midst of a small start-up Lavender Farm in the Otway Region in Victoria Australia, we are currently planting close to 10,000 lavender plants with many more to come along with other plants like rose geranium, rosemary, lemon verbena and some others we will be distilling into essential oils. Hoping to one day sell my soap in our shop once it's up and running and I get better at making soap.

    Welcome, @reeeen4!

    How ambitious! Loving it! And there's NO such thing as watching too many soaping videos!
    I'm fairly new as well, and this forum has been VERY helpful.
    Good luck and happy soaping!

    Welcome reeen4 :).

    Fyi - don't use dried lavender buds in soap as decoration, because it looks like mouse poo :eek:.
