Sage and lemon grass soap

Besides for opening my first attempt at canning after a few months of sitting on the shelf, I can think of no other scarier moment that when it came to making soap.

My first problem was the horror stories I had heard of fumes and burns. The other thought was "What if it doesn't work". The ingredients are expensive if you use oils and I hate to waste.

Well, for all those who want to try soap making, do give it a go. I have now made 7 batches of plain soap and we could never use anything else again unless hard pressed. This weekend saw the first batch of herb soap. It has turned out well.

Thank looks like so much fun with such wonderful soap to use when finished. Thanks for the link to the directions to make soap. This is something I surely have to try when I get home. :)

Something I have always wanted to try but never had the courage.

Your herb soap looks wonderful Wendy. Looking forward to making some of our own.

Thanks, I need a gentle push. I really want to make soap but I have the same fears you've mentioned. I also remember that feeling about about my first bottle too.
