So the last time I made cold process soap was in March 2011. What a long hiatus! I had to take a break from soapmaking because I am pregnant and all of the fragrances were making me feel nauseous! I store my finished soaps in the garage and I couldn't even go near the garage with out feeling like I had to gak! The first trimester was the worst. I'm about at the end of my pregnancy now and I wanted to get back into soaping. I missed it. So I decided to make some soap today. A real simple 100% olive oil castile soap. No color, no fragrance. It makes for good and gentle baby soap too. I still have some from before that I can use, but I wanted to make some more. So I used 4 pounds of olive oil to make soap! Yup that's a lot of soap! It was so fun. So castile soap takes a long time to cure so I'll let these sit around for a good, long time before I consider using them.
