intentions list for 2014. I have made soap. I didn't do it from scratch - I already did that when I went on a soap making class, and to do it at home would of meant quite a costly outlay for all the equipment. (May do it one day though). I look upon using melt and pour soap the same way as chefs would use ready made filo pastry instead of making it from scratch so that is what I used.
Melt and pour soap is the safe way of making soap. You can still be inventive with the ingredients you add and the moulds that you use. I made peppermint soap using dried peppermint leaves and peppermint essential oil. The end result is a subtle fragrant soap that will be great for hand washing after a busy day in the garden.
I am excited to think of all the different soaps I can make including lemon with lemon zest, lavender and oatmeal, and rose with rose petals, ah yes, rose.
Many more things to make and do. It feels good to keep busy and productive.
The sun has just come out. I think this is going to be a good week. x
