Liquid Soap Pictorial

Here are my steps, documented in pictures. This should in no way be taken as a tutorial. If you need some info on where to get a bonafide tutorial, send me a comment and I’ll point you in the right direction. There are so many tutorials out there, but most don’t have step-by-step pictures.

Liquid Soap, Yay!


Those who know me know that I used to sell my handmade soaps and lotions. I’ve made both bar soaps and liquid soap using the cold process method. I’m considering selling it again, but I have to see how I’m going to make it all happen. I’m way too talented for my own good! This is my blessing, and this is my curse, a la Spiderman.
Anyway, I took a loooong hiatus from Soapmaking. In the interim I’ve used both bars and shower gels, but nothing compares to my handmade soap. Last night I made a batch of the most delicious, richest, most soothing batch of Liquid soap! I’m so excited at how easy it was, and how well it turned out. The whole thing took approximately 4 hours, but about 90% of that time was oven time. I didn’t take pictures this time, but next time I definitely will. I might even do a tutorial for anyone out there who is interested in making some. If there’s enough interest I will sell it.
The batch I made used cocoa butter, shea butter, coconut & corn oils. Can you say rich and soothing??!! I used it this morning and my skin is loving it. Washed my hair with it, and I didn’t even use conditioner. Awesome.
Like I said, I didn’t take pictures of the process, but I will put up a picture of the pot, and the bottle below.
