Today I prepared my 4th batch of soap using the Hot Process method and a basic recipe of olive oil, coconut oil, and castor oil. I also added lavender essential oil & lavender buds for texture. The soap actually traced. It looked exactly like vanilla pudding. I enjoyed the whole process but I took special delight in pouring my lovely batch into my perfect soap mold that my husband handmade for me. I had another A-Maine-zing day!
