    This morning I unmolded the lard+coconut oil+3 other oils soap, with 56 % lard and 12 % coconut oil I made yesterday evening. How much differently it behaved compared to lard:coconut 80:20!

    @cmzaha I do recommend the bubble doughs after all. I sold more of them today than soap. Kids would see the bright colours and come over, parents commented how they are good stocking stuffers and loved that it was something different they haven't seen before.

    How did you package them. It is great to have kid stuff, they tend to drag over the parents!

    Have been mia for a while. Here are some new soap I created this year within the past 3 weeks. Being a nurse manager is taking alot of my life. Really deciding to move back to bedside cares.

    I gave my first soaps to some friends. Only 3 of them are lucky enough to get to try my soap :cool:
    Still it's exciting. I've been using two of my bars for about 2 weeks now and I'm liking it but I'm biased so it's always good to have an outside opinion

    @zolveria the donuts look good enough to eat! And I love the frankensoaps hehe, so cute :)

    Soapy thing:
    Reorganized my cured soaps in boxes. They were all just sitting together there inside, now the vegan ones are separate, the ones I'm keeping to check in the future are separate, the ones for random gifting are separate, and the ones for home use are separate.

    I need to make soap for Christmas gifts......

    I packaged them in 4oz compostable plastic portion containers. I used neon pigments from Nurture Soap, so that definitely attracted the kids.

    I made a batch of bath bombs :) . only about half of them didn't crack in half--but I think I know what I did wrong. it went much better than the kit I tried--haha they didn't grow out of the mold and get all pockey looking. And I THINK I learned a few things!!!! Now I need to go get some more BS to try again this morning.

    I made a batch of oat milk, oatmeal and carrot soap yesterday because I wanted to try out the kaolin clay and sodium lactate that arrived last week. The clay did seem to absorb a lot of the liquid after it cooked which made the batter quite stiff even after I added the yogurt and coconut milk, but I was able to pour the batter into the mold after added the sodium lactate.

    Made a batch of oatmilk soap based on a recipe from Kiwimoose.

    Kitchen didn't go up in flames, it's in the mould and it's not trying to get out and attack the cat, so all's well.

    And thanks, Kiwimoose
