Brisbane Local Food

Growing local

A while ago I dabbled into the art of soap making with a few of the girls from on Brisbane Local Food, yesterday I made a batch of goats milk, ground oatmeal and green clay CP soap.  I am so happy with the results, just having to wait the four weeks now before it can be used is the frustrating part.

No you don't boil it, but the lye still gets to a very high temperature when added to the water, something that you have to be very careful with.

I've seen soaps more real than cake, could lead to confusion ;-) Ah, cold process mmm, does that mean you don't boil it? Less dangerous than boiling lye perhaps?

Hi Elaine,  Cold Process soap making, I know I have had other people think that I have had a slice of cake not soap lol
