I finally tested one of the salt bars I made 6 months ago and I really love it. Its the first time I have been able to notice different qualities of different soaps. The lather and the bubbles from the salt bar was fluffier and softer and had a lightness to it. Hard to describe but it was a noticeable difference from all other soaps I have made. Used a recipe that I am sure I got from someone here and then I tweaked it slightly. Its was 80% Coconut, 10% Avocado Oil, 10% High Oleic Safflower with a 20% Superfat and 38% Lye concentration. I made them in individual rose shaped molds. I am definitely going to make another couple of batches and just let them sit so I always have a few on hand. Was a nice change from some of the more lotiony (if that's a word) bars I have made. Wondering how other people describe their salt bar lathers/bubbles. Just curious if I am imagining it or not. Happy Mothers Day to all the soapmaking Mom's out there!!

ETA: Forgot to mention I added 35% of oil weight in fine sea salt. Batch was 480g of oils with 170g of fine sea salt

Thank you for the Mother's Day wishes. I have found I really like my older bars, too.
