My Humble Soap Making Room
Good Morning Soap Fans! I finished my batch of "Citrus Grove" soap last night after my post. Mmmmmm! The house smelled "like a big grapefruit" according to my Hubby.
( He did, of course, assure me that this was a GOOD thing!)
One of the many benefits of making all natural soap in your home is the lovely aroma when you walk in the door. At least this is what my friends say....unfortunately, I am so accustomed to the fragrance that I don't always notice it. I do notice if I've been gone for a few days, THEN I notice.
I'm always curious (nosy?) regarding soap-room setups. I always wonder "What do other soapers' 'workshops' look like?" I make my soap in my laundry room. (With the exception of heating the oils which is done in the kitchen.) But I always try to imagine where some of the fabulous, lovely soaps I see originated. Weird, huh?
So, having said all that, I thought I would include a photo of my humble soap "laboratory". Now I must also admit that it's rarely as tidy as it looks in this photo. You'll usually see EO bottles and tubs of cocoa butter, shea butter, etc. on the counter, but this is the place where my soap originates.
To all my fellow "curious" souls....enjoy!
