New Soap!

We invested in some high quality oils, like babassu and walnut, for the dry season. I have a terrible dry skin issue. So, we took the initiative to make some good cleansing soaps using the oils that are great on dry skin.
Wife VERY SAFELY following the recipe and measuring lye
to work on the babassu and other oils.
It turned out to go very smoothly, and a bit faster than last time we made soap.
Lye by the gram.
The bubbling oils look so cool.

Working in the lye to stimulate the chemical reaction.
We scented it with orange, peppermint, and eucalyptus essential oils. It has a fresh,minty, medicinal quality to it. The bars were made last week and still on the soft side, but they smell great.

Wife also made somebody butter, lip balm, and some other old-school apothecary-esque remedies.They all feel and smell great.It's really nice to be off of the store-bought chemistry experiments that really don't work but feel slimy and weird.The natural oils are 100 times better for my skin.

Yay soap and oils!
