Making Soap

I've always been intrigued by soap making.  It's part cooking, part chemistry and at the end you have this super useful product.  Yet, for some reason, I couldn't bring myself to do it.  Working with lye was just too scary and I was afraid I would mess something up and blow up my house, Breaking Bad style. If you knew my grade in chemistry, you would know that I am the last person to playing with chemicals.  Anyhoo,  after assurances from veteran soap makers that I would have a house to come to home to, I decided to take the plunge! 

If you can't tell from these pictures, I was loving the whole experience!  My mom, on the other hand, not so much.  But the end result is an awesome Milk and Honey Cleansing Bar that's super moisturizing but also gentle enough to use on your face.  Check it out at the next market.
