    So I have this soap made on the spring equinox full moon at midnight, which I am sure could be very magical or something!

    Ooh, I never thought of that. I did the same and made two batches and went to bed around 2am. 😆

    What did you add to the ‘magical soap’?

    There is a soap that makes special soap on the new moon and full moon at midnight etc and charges more for it. She only makes one batch and usually includes special EO’s

    I used honey, oatmeal and Calendula petals… no EO’s. I am not sure how special this is but the petals were a whim created while I was stiring. I think if I tried to plan a soap on a day like this I could never manage.

    I thought I was the only nut making soap in the middle of the night 😆

    I made a batch of plain olive oil soap and a fancy batch with colour and violet scent.

    Beautiful soap!

    So I was up until 2.30 last night, It didn’t occur to me to make soap though, I stand corrected!

    Sorry Miley…not a chance. We’re all soaping nuts. I got out of bed one time, just cause I couldnt stop thinking of this particular recipe, and made it! 😀 Got back into bed, in time for Hubby to get out of bed! LOL. Nice timing…bed to myself! 😆

    I knew ALS was the perfect place for me… I love being surounded by nuts!

    Of course Hubby thinks I need to be ‘commited’…. I am already committed just in a different way 🙂

    Well, I made my first batch of soap EVER last week. I am pretty impressed- it is certainly nowhere near as beautiful as the piccys above but it smells nice and turned out the colour it was meant to (phew!). :tup:

    That’s wonderful GF. I’m surprised you haven’t made more since your first batch. Once I actually got started, I was really hooked. 😆

    I should post a photo of my first soap from over 2 years ago. I still have the soap in the cupboard. It’s not pretty. 😆

    School holidays Gianna 😉 Coupled with Spring cleaning. I did however purchase a soapmaking book with different recipes in it and I am looking forward to trying them out 😉

    Woop Woop GF!!! well done. I can’t even remember my first soap! It was made around 10 years ago…let alone keeping a bit 😆 I think it was a calendula soap, of which I still make today, being one of my biggest sellers!

    I can’t wait to do this swap…it’s going to be fun.

    Welcome to the madness that is our lives GF! It will soon take you over! :hug:

    I am back from being away and “make soap moulds” has moved to the top of my to do list so hopefully in the next couple of weeks things will come together. Will keep all those who have offered to swap soap for a mould informed on progress:tup:

    Still waiting to get my soap making gear back from a friend…. Grrrrrr she always seems to borrow it right when I need it… and is very tardy in returning it.

    Not happy Jan :p

    Hopefully I’ll be able to make some in the next couple of days.
