Whoo hoo! I was so excited to come home yesterday and see the Fed-Ex package on my doorstep! (Santa’s reindeer work for Fed-Ex you know…) Inside this package was my NEW custom made soap molds! I got 2 – 18 bar molds and a third mold with slots cut in it to slip my cutter into to make straighter bars! I must have been good this year! I had been using homemade wooden molds, they work wonderfully, but the cutting par was a bit challenging. Someone had told me to use guitar string, I’ve been making soap for a couple of years now and I JUST figured out the guitar string is inserted into a block and the soap should slip through it to be cut. Too much work for me! I’d still find a way to mess it up! I’ve been using a dry wall knife. Now, since I’ve been soooooo good, I’ve got the mold with slots AND a brand-spanking new SOAP cutter!
I was anxious to use my mold today. I didn’t have any particular soap in mind to make. I created my first blended batch. Rosemary~Lavender with a hint of Lemon essential oils and lavender petals sprinkled on top of the loaf. My house smells awesome! I can not wait until tomorrow to pop that baby out of the mold and cut my bars! Now I plan to get creative! Here it is!
You will have to check out my facebook page, I will post photos of the soaps after cutting! I totally make these available for purchase!
