Well, I can’t keep showing you only wet soap and not the finished results, plus I have been playing around with recipes and would like to report on how they turned out.
This is the Baby Sheep Milk Soap.. this is a very, very soft soap, as in I am will most likely let it cure another four to six months in the hopes that it will cure out more.. its like washing your hands with a mix of soap and lotion, it melts very quickly, and gives small rich lather, your hands feel very, very soft when washed with this soap, I can see how it would be amazing on a wee ones fine skin.. no scent.. just pure and very, very gentle..
This is Sheep Milk Nettle Soap– This is a very hard bar of soap, it gives a small amount of lather, it has a very, very light scent of nettles and it feels wonderful, I love this soap as face or shower soap, you feel so clean and no need for lotions when done with it, I have also used this one as a solid shampoo bar, I found it cleaned really well and when rinced with apple cider mixed with water, that my hair dried to soft fluffy and with my natural curl showing, I had a few folks tell me, that my hair looked great that day, but I would like to tweek the recipe if I wanted to make it into a proper shampoo bar!
This is Nanaimo..
It is a special soap as it was made with my own home rendered lard, and its shows, its a amazing hard, hard, HARD bar of soap, it also is almost impossible to get a lather on it.. it is a very interesting soap to me, it has very little scent but what it does have is soft and enjoyable, it produces a very creamy feel when washing with it, and it leaves your hands feeling super clean and very, very soft.. now I didn’t much like this bar in the shower until I felt the super creamy feel and shaved with it, and man O man, its a shaving bar of soap.. love it…
This is my Coffee Garden Soap..
Wow, I am so glad that I have the recipe on this one and can repeat it, its a winner! This is a lovely scented and scubby soap with a amazing lather, leaving you hand or face clean and soft with a awesome smoothness to it.. Its got lard in it, so it is a bit of a harder bar as well but it soften in the water perfectly and lathers quickly and fully!
So there you have them.. Coming up in the next while, Beer Soap and Wine Soap..
