This aftermath of the soap volcano turned out pretty good and I loved playing the role of Mad Scientist. Get caught up and read the explosion blog post here.
It has the look of hot process soap with a fabulous texture. Thank goodness the ammonia smell from the milk has dissipated. It smells like Orange Blossom now, a potential new fragrance that I’m testing. I know it’s not the most attractive soap that you’ve ever seen but it’s already pretty hard and it will be great in the shower. The ingredients are definitely luscious! Coconut Milk, Coconut Oil and Cocoa Butter – yummay!
I’m going to do more testing with this recipe next week so stay tuned. You never know what’s going to happen but I’m hoping with lower temperatures to avoid the soap volcano. Either way, a little bit of fast work with scooping the exploded soap back into the mold and the soap is saved. It may not be sleek enough to sell but slap a cute cigar band on there and it’s definitely friends’n’family gift worthy. Then again, the rustic look is always ‘in’.
