Absolutely, yes! In whatever way shape or form you can manage, and in whatever way makes sense to your brain, keep a Journal. Keep track of what you did, how things went, any changes to the recipe, and anything else you can remember about what happened that did it didn't go according to plan. Check back and make notes on how it performs over time, both according to yourself and others. Your future self will thank you. And this goes doubly if your batches are spaced out over time, or if you make more soap than you need. You will not remember all the things, and it's amazing all the little things that can add up to big differences.Made my second batch today - Very dull compared to the creations shown here - Snowman Poop!!!
I forgot to add the sodium lactate so it’ll be interesting to see how much softer it is and I wanted to add fragrance. Didn’t check how much I’d need and had about a quarter of the amount needed to scent my loaf. Never mind. One lives and one learns.
Am thinking that maybe I need to keep a soaping journal.
