Have you seen Cee’s Whipped Soap Blog? (Oil and Butter Blog)
So there I was with fluffy oils and then I slowly started to add the Olive and Castor Oil…before you know it my fluffy oils turned into a soft, melted ice cream consistency. GRRRRRRR…I used too much soft oils. SIGH…so I was hoping that the mixture would get a little thicker once I added the lye water. Well, I carefully mixed in the lye water, making sure not to splatter anything (since I was using a mixer instead of a stick blenders). Well, the more I mixed the runnier it got! I added the fragrance and it was still just as runny. I was getting pretty frustrated. It was obvious that my try at Whipped Soap had certainly not worked.
So I colored it – got some pretty cool swirls and put this puppy in the fridge…thinking that with the goat milk it may over heat on me.
Here are the pics
At first I also was not sure how I was going to go about cutting it since Whipped Soap tends to harden up pretty quick and may crack as you cut. Now with this “Frankenstein” kind of soap I was not sure how I was going to go about cutting it. So I took a change and cut it the following day.
Sadly my soap had some lye pockets within the soap. It was pretty upsetting. All those oils, and I really thought that I blended it really well. I am thinking that because of the Goats Milk that it overheated on me. GRRRRR
Well, obviously I WAS NOT READY for Whipped Soap. :0(
So instead I drowned my sorrows in melting wax and came up with these cute little Wax Melts…
I think they are so cute and sure put a smile on my face 🙂
