Congrats on winning the challenge mcook! I personally loved the combo of re-using old ingredients for the soap and re-using for the labelling too! Double dipper!

May I ask what determined the amount of each oil?  I am just starting CP and only tried my own blend tonight. I have many doubts so far!

I'm not sure exactly how mcook comes up with her recipes, but there are some basic rules of thumb when designing a recipe, although you can make lovely soap without following them too lol!

Usually keep the coconut oil under 30-ish% since it can be drying in large proportions
Usually try to keep "hard" oils to "soft" oils in a ratio of something like 1:1 (hard and soft not referring to solid and liquid, but to what qualities they impart in the soap)
Usually the highest percentage of oil will be olive since it is so great all-around.
Usually the boutique-y oils are very small precentages (castor, cocoa butter, shea butter, etc).

Of course you can follow all or none of these guidelines, but these were some of the guidelines I was given when I first started!
