When your friends save "containers' for you, just in case you can use them for soap..
If my BBF never gives me another quart cream container I could now make soap every day for 5-6 months and would still find some in out of the way spots. Long with all the other containers she keeps "just in case".
I read these posts and nod, thinking 'yep, done that' or "wow, I'm not so weird after all, cause I do that too". Everything I look at is evaluated for it's soaping potential. next - rose petals..... how will I use them? what will the result be? will they hold up? what if I mix them with mint? rosemary? lavender? or roses and chocolate? you know what I will be dreaming about tonight
When you only make soap for your family, and your husband tells you as you, are making another batch, "we already have enough soap to last for the next hundred years"!
you know youre a soapmaker when you nibble on your cocoa butter...
Sounds like he's hooked too Heartsong You've GOT to make him that strawberry soap for picking up the OO !!! A reward to reinforce his good behavior :-D
You go to the grocery store, and look at the oils they have for SOAP instead of cooking!
I actually had a dream about soap making last night too!
You visit a kitchen store and every gadget you like relates to soapmaking. This happened yesterday. Even the Hubster was getting excited.
You are walking past the local CVS and look at the flowerbed and think "Can I come back later and harvest some of the beautiful lavender?"
Oh, and I'm guilty of nibbling the cocoa butter too! I wish it tasted like the heaven it smells like!!
