Adventures in Soap

After reading up on the process, watching video instructions and gathering materials and equipment, the time has come to jump in. Soap making is a true art form. The recipes range from simple to complex. Environmental conditions will effect the outcome of the finial product. For my first attempt I decided to go with a kit, everything included ( no sense in setting myself if for failure right off the bat ). When the kit arrive I opened it and reviewed the contents

• silicon loaf mold
• quart jar of oil blend ( olive, coconut, palm)
• 2 – 2oz pkg. of Shea and mango butter blend
• a 2oz jar of lemongrass essential oil
• a 1 oz jar of tea tree oil
• a pre measured jar of lye for this recipe

Sounds like its all there, but wait I have to have water to dissolve the lye into how much water do I need? You know that packing list that comes in every box you should really check them for directions before you throw them away. As Murphy would have it when I go to check the trash can its the one time its been taken out without my having to hell hound the kids to do their chores. Guess I go on line and see if I can find the recipe where I purchased the kit.
