Sorry I Can't Stop...

Well due to the instant wonderful results of my new favorite thing to do...I stopped making dinner and now just make soap all night. My family is starving but boy are they clean!

Newest endeavor as of 45 minutes ago...Oatmeal Honey Soap. Made with all organic ingredients and this time no dye just the natural creamy color of the oatmeal and honey. I added about 3 or 4 tablespoons of honey and 1/2 cup of oatmeal. I used 1/2 bar of the base. These soaps look big in the picture but they are actually a lot of mini bars. I melted the base and then added everything in, a quick stir and poured into the loaf mold. I sprinkled oatmeal on top also to make sure you could see the ingredients and then cut them a little hap-hazard too look rustic. They say that honey and oatmeal are great ingredients for sensitive skin and are extremely moisturizing. I thought it would be great for my little son rumps before bed time tonight:)

Hope your weekend was great where ever you are!

Thanks, I love to hear that! I am obsessed with finding combinations for new batches of soap. It's a sickness but at least I can give them to everyone;))

Sounds lovely. I make hot processed soap most if the time so I don't know how much half a base is. Are you referring to the big blocks of M&P that run around $40 or the smaller ones that run around $10 in the craft stores? I have some left in the big one I used to make embeds.
