Scrub a Dub Dub

Checking the temperature of the soap

We cut the chunks to put into the soap, we are only 1/2 way done!

Ta Da! Final product :)


We got home from our trip last night and seeing as though we had all that time in the car together to talk and think, we decided we wanted to try and make some handmade soap. This was really fun because usually I have these creative epiphanies and I come home and do them myself. Well, this time my husband was interested (he really likes science so I am thinking it had something to do with the mixing, idk). It was time consuming and we stayed up till 1am doing it, but it was so fun and I can't wait to use the bar of soap. I am actually going to give some of it to my friend as a thank you for keeping my dog. It is made from Olive oil glycerin soap and Shea butter soap. We were trying to be as natural as we could given that we made a stop at A.C. Moore for supplies, but there are so many natural soap suppliers on-line these days. Anyways, we had fun and if any of you have kids I think they would love making soap! I think my dog even liked it. Ciao ;)
