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.

Would love to learn how to make my own soap. I got a “gardener soap” at a farmers market that I like a lot. But right now I don’t see me having the time to learn a new craft as I don’t have enough time for the crafts I already do…
