I didn't start making soap until after my divorce and had the weekends free when the children were with their father.

Now a days, I'm gone from the farm 12 hours a day for work M-F, farmer's market until noon on Saturday, church Sunday mornings, and of course activities with my last son (16 yo) at home most the rest of the time.

Good thing both my husband and my son don't mind pitching in for housework and cooking leaving me time to spin and knit (and make soap).

As for the expense - you can get by pretty inexpensively by using oils found at the grocery store, lye from the big box stores (like home depot or lowes) and a lined rubbermaid container for a mold.

What a process! Thanks for sharing. I am just starting to look into the art. I guess there is a whole lot more than I expected.

These look so yummy and fragrant where I wish I were able to smell them!
I have always wanted to try making my own soap but have yet to try it.... I may need to leave it up to you pros!  Cheesy
