Playing Around This Weekend

I tried a new method this weekend. Normally I use the cold process method for soaps...this weekend I tried hot process...and I think I am in Love!! lol

I have been so intimidated by the method, but it was so easy compared to what I was thinking. I do think that previous experience with liquid soap helped in making the process easier.

The best thing about doing hot process over cold process, is that it has already completed the saponification process, and can be used as soon as it has cooled down, rather than the 3 week plus wait I usually do with my cold process soaps.

So over the weekend I made Rosemary Mint, and tried out a red mica coloring I have been wanting to try, scenting it with Peppermint Stick. MMMM minty fresh in our house this weekend!!

Congrats on your hot process success! I love that you can use it right away too (it's always hard to wait for cold process to cure). Rosemary Mint sounds super refreshing!
