Lye Soap

I've spent the day making my lye soaps... and boy does my entire house smell wonderful!

This ummm very non-interesting picture is of a new little combo I came up with. I think I'm going to make these into soap balls and roll them in ground cloves. Doesn't it look like brownie batter?

It's a primitive chocolate.... and it's loaded with some yummy scented stuff! Sure smells like you could eat it.... but no.

I make my soap batches, one small batch at a time to keep control over it. This way it doesn't trace too fast or too slow... I can add the ingredients in at the right times and it sure makes some mild and wonderful old fashion soap.

Be watching over the next month for these on my web site. If you're interested in seeing some I've already made on my site you can click here. http://www.bluejeanprimitives.net/store/WsDefault.asp?Cat=EarlySoaps There's a few pages with all different kinds. Again, I'll be restocking more over the next month.

Blessings, Jean :)

I can attest to the fabulousness of your soaps, Jean -- I'm using lilac and brown flax in my upstairs bath right now. . . . I'm nt sure I could resist taking a bite out of the chocolate, though . . . .
