I made my first soap with lard on Sept. 21. I was very eager to try it, and when I use it, it gets a beautiful lather if I use a pouf, but if I just use it plain or try to get some lather with a brush, nothing. Maybe a thin film, if that, but nothing that even vaguely resembles lather, creamy or otherwise. Here is the recipe I used. If anyone has any idea about why, I'd love some guidance. I was so looking forward to using this soap.
