Making soap

A friend called me the other day and wanted me to show her how to make soap. I hadn’t done it in years. So on a day off we got together and made soap. It was a lot of fun, and it wasn’t the soap making that was important, it was the time spent together. Like they say – it’s the journey not the destination.

Making soap can take patience, and a lot of stirring. In this case it seemed to take more than usual, perhaps because of experimenting with the recipe. But the stirring provided quality time, to chat, to share a cup of coffee.

So here are some pictures. The soap is curing….it takes a couple of weeks. But we will have some fine olive oil/coconut oil/hemp oil/shea butter soap soon.
