Unmolding soap

I unmolded some of my soap yesterday. The lavender one was still pretty soft, and I couldn’t get it to release from the shaped molds, but the larger blocks were okay. I think I should have waited to do a shaped mold with it until I could re-batch it. On the other hand, the recipe I created is looking good so far. It is firmer, with an earthy or fresh baked nut muffin smell. I didn’t use any essential oils in it, just nutmeg and cinnamon, so it’s scent will be more mild.

Almond Honey Goat Milk Soap, my recipe

Shaped Almond Honey Goat Milk Soap

So, that’s what I have been working on in between canning peach jam (which kept me busy all day). At this point I really like the Almond Honey soap, but the lavender bar isn’t quite like I wanted. I will know better in a few weeks. Soap is not something that gives instant gratification! 🙂  If the Almond Honey tuns out well I will share the recipe, but beware…I used a heck of a lot of oils!
