I Love to Make Soap

This round of soapmaking consisted of cocoa & oatmeal,
coffee, and cornmeal with milk & honey.

Here they are outside curing/drying.

I trim the edges of the bars ... and handshape each one ... 
while they are still pliable.

With the scraps from the trimmings I form soapballs.

No two bars are exactly alike ...
hardly perfect, or professional, at all.

But I like them.
A lot.


  1. You are very creative. Nice soaps. Do you have a recipe you are going to share? Sorry about the city thing. Sounds like you are pushing through in grand style.

  2. ~mc~, that sounds more like something that should be eaten rather than washed with. If you get hungry just eat the soap. ;)

  3. Gorgeous soaps! Do you sell them? I haven't made soap in years, but I plan to once I get settled on my land.

  4. I'm itching to make soap, but I haven't got a soap thermometer yet and the store that sells them is way over on the other side of the mountain... sob!

  5. My wife makes soap. Sometimes she makes chocolate soap. You have to be carefull not to eat it (grin).

  6. I make soaps too!!! There is something SO soothing about it.

  7. Some of those look good enough to eat. :-)

  8. Definitely look like bonbons! Yum! I haven't tried making soaps yet, but it's on my to do list.
