My last batch of soap seized. Am attempting my first-ever rebatch. Wish me luck. I think it was the essential oil..... So I have followed the instructions to the letter. Hope it works because the soap smells delicious!

The other day, I posted about the lavender scented soap I'd made, but I didn't have any pictures yet.

Tonight, I removed it from the mold and cut it into bars. I have to say that I am so so very pleased with how it's turned out. I love how it's looking right now and it smells heavenly!

AND I finally have a picture of it.

I have just made up the batch of lavender soap and may I just say....

Though toxic waste green/yellow again, as before, it is also the best batch I have done yet? I doubled it this time, for one thing, hoping for a bigger batch once I removed it from the mold. This is also the first batch I've done that I've had my new immersible mixer from my mom for. At the end, I also added the lavender essential oil just before pouring it.

Oh my! It traced beautifully. So excited. It was so thick and gloppy when I poured it into the mold and I can't wait to see how it turns out.

I also lined the mold this time, first time doing so, so it will be easier to remove & cut when the soap is still soft. I hope.

How does one figure out what scents go with each other? I have an assortment of essential oils, except I used all the rosemary and half the lavender and eucalyptus, and I'm thinking about combining a couple of them in my next batch of soap, only I don't know which and I don't want to waste what I've got.

ETA: mods, tags plz?
