If I feel the wood bottom the soap is still reacting and giving off heat.
It's not done yet. Still cooking.

Took it out.
Looks like butter.

It has to age and harden but thats how easy it is to make quite a bit of soap.
The women love this stuff I can easily get some females to endorse it.
Hand made.

The ends are the best.

Next I'll try making Castille all olive oil.
Wife says it'll make nice gifts.
We like the beekeepers soap.

Forgot.
This combination is how you'll keep your hands from cracking and splitting.
Wash with the soap. It softens and exfoliates your paws. Next use the gold bond radiance renewal.
It's like wearing protective gloves kind of.

A friend of ours is big into soap making; it's a pretty profitable hobby for her.

The Castille soap has to set for 5 days before I can cut it. It's very soft.

We're talking about the olive oil soap.
Wife researched.
Can use it in 4-6 weeks but it's better to wait 8 months.
If you get into this hobby it uses up some space if you do custom soaps that require long aging to harden and dry.
I had no idea I'd started an 8-month project. :doh
