and here I am! just in time, as I was unmolding my new soap which I made with one of my favorite wooden molds! :) The 5 Lb Wooden Mold from Bramble Berry:
Not only does it allow me to make large batches of my favorite Goats Milk and Oatmeal soap recipe, but I also have the handy silicone liner that makes it a breeze to unmold my soap.
This batch I decided to fragrance with Oatmilk and Honey Fragrance Oil. For some reason not a lot of people like this fragrance. I must admit in the beginning I had my doubts but it has definitely grown on me :). Now I make a special batch for me and share with my little sister who has pretty sensitive skin and enjoys the oats in the soap.
Here are the final results:
I really like how the swirl turned out. I added a little bit of titanium dioxide to lighten part of the soap. This one has honey in it and I can tell that it was at risk of overheating. Luckily I stored it in the freezer overnight, but I can see a little bit of gelling in the middle of the soap.
loving my soap!
