New to me soap recipe
I made this on Monday, it's now sitting wrapped and starting the curing process. Mostly I use a very standard lye and solid fat recipe, but thsi time went for one that used all oils, from the book "Making Scented Soap" by Linda Hamblen, which I got at the tip for next to nothing - that was a bit of a find, wasn't it? :)
this one used coconut oil, olive oil and sunflower oil; instead of the spring water I infused some water with dried elderflowers that needed using up, and added in some lavender essenbtial oil. It's a lovely creamy colour, and smells sweet. Looking forward to unwrapping it, slicing it and using it.
