3) Once everything has reached the proper temperature, it’s time to watch the magic happen! I stir the lye mixture into the oil, and keep stirring and blending until it starts to saponify.

4) After adding my natural scents and/or colorants I pour the soap into my molds.

5) After approximately 24 hours I take the soaps out of the molds and cut them up.The soaps then cure for 4-6 weeks before they are ready to be used!
