    today i made.... my first absolute disaster! will dedicate a post to it, don't want to hijack this thread.

    i'm still playing with gel/no gel Nat. I've had one partial, one full and one not at all. i think i prefer the slight translucency you get with gel.

    ok, today I made... my second attempt at the honey oat milk soap. using the milk ice cubes method. The lye mixture did discolour a little bit, but not as bad as last time by a long way. Only thing was, there ended up being some undissolved lye in the bottom when I poured it into the oils. fingers crossed I haven't just killed another batch! It looked gorgeous and creamy when I poured it - using 1l milk cartons for this batch so I'll see how that goes!

    yeah, i thought about the great size the soap would be once I cut it.. I didn't think about pouring the soap into that tiny opening! Didn't spill any though, so I'm feeling like superwoman right now! lol.
