Earlier conversation gave info on salt bars and I decided to go ahead and make a batch. Well, didn't happen. As I started gathering things together the recipe just didn't suit me, even for a "hold my beer while I mix this up" batch. Decided a pot of coffee might help and one thing led to another. I have a bag of really crappy coffee that I was going to return (yes, it was that bad) but decided to use it in some soap. One thing led to another and now it smells like a chocolate peppermint kiss. Threw some of the grounds in for good measure. I'm out of molds for a couple of days, the fridge is full, so it looks like I might get some wood butchering time in. I'm having fun. Here's a picture. Hope it turns out. BO, CO OO, LL*,Castor, a little sugar and a few grounds. Maybe a little more than a little but not a lot. *Lovely Lard - 8) No matter - freezer, fridge, still trying to gel. Oils too warm to begin? I did read this morning in another thread that room temp was better for non gel. Will try that today. I'm not unhappy with how it turned out. It is still a bit sticky but getting better. Time will heal. Now back to the drawing board which must be one of my favorite places. I keep going back to it. :? And of course, for all you kitty lovers, here is Mr. Grumpy after her morning nap which precedes her pre lunch nap.
