The Big Chill = Soap Makers Dream!

As the country grinds to a halt with temperatures of -5degrees and below I am a jolly happy soap maker as the temperatures make my life so much easier – popping the stock pots outside to cool faster! Perfect!

However, the workshop was too cold even for hardy little me so I dragged everything into the kitchen and, like the good old days set up over the Aga and measured, melted, mixed and poured for much of the day……

New supplier I am trying for the 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil soaps – the soap colour depends on where the olives are from, the end bar ranging usually from a pure white to green hues… however, this oil was much yellower – can’t wait to see how these turn out in a month or so!
