I can't believe the last time I made handmade soaps for my family was in December 2007. We are almost running out of supply and the Christmas break was just the right time to make more.
I normally cure the soaps for 8-10 weeks, but of course, the longer it cures the better. So far, I have done 8 kilos but this is not enough for us to lasts the whole year. I think I will be making a few more kilos just to make sure.
Most of my soaps are made of goat's milk and 50% of the oils is Olive Oil. The essential oils I used in these batches of soap are Lavender, Mandarin, Grapefruit, Orange, and Lemon. I have also put in a bit of Cocoa Butter and Jojoba oils. In all of my soaps, I always put Tea Tree Oil.
