Hey everyone! I've posted a few times around, mostly about my trails and mostly errors. haha! Last time i posted i had brown soap poo out the mold. hahahah!

BUT! I finally have a wonderful batch to show you! I dont know how the bars are going to be because i made this recipe on soap calc 9. I based it off one i saw elsewhere.. Any idea on how the bars will be?

31.2 oz olive
12 oz coconut oil
3.8 mango butter
.9 beeswax
18.2 water
6.6 oz lye

I ran it through 2 times just to make sure. haha.

It's scented with Pear and almond, and it's light minty green with black swirls.





These are right after pouring! I hope it's as wonderful as it looks right now.
I guess taking a week or so break from soap making to MOVE into my much bigger house was a great thing.

I really took my time making this batch, though, more than usual. I actually have a sink now so i could put the lye in the sink to cool. My microwave works now, so it was easier to warm up my solid oils. Pretty much, it was just the smoothest batch to make, EVER! haha.



NOW WITH MORE PICTURES! Smiley

To make the swirls? I did an in the pot swirl then after i'd poured it into the mold, i dripped all the remaining black onto the top, kinda of three or four main spots but relatively evenly over the whole log. I used a cheapo, white plastic cooking spoon from walmart (4 for 97 cents!) and i made 3 straightish lines down the middle, then about every inch or so, made a line across the width. Then, one last looong straightish stripe down the middle length-wise again. Every time i swirled i tried to keep all the lines from touching each other if they were going the same direction.

I really love this soap! It smells SOOO good! I just added pictures to the first post.

It's so wonderful, my sister came to visit and asked me to cut it up so she could smell it more, then bought a bar right then, not wanting to wait to take it home (she of course knows not to use it for a bit, for best results.)

I know! I hate the time you have to wait to cut it, though!
It's sort of like unwrapping a christmas gift, hah.

I think next time when i make this recipe if i do like it, that i'll let the soap sit longer before cutting because it very easy to squish and move around.. the blade kept sticking to it.
