I love making soap! I had a soap making party once, and visited with lady friend's while I showed them how to make soap. :) I generally use the lye and olive oil recipe, but some times I adventure into adding a little of other oils. I made lard laundry soap once and it was so stinky, I could hardly stand it! It didn't require cooking, but I did'nt enjoy making it at all. :) I love my stick blender! It's like "Give me 30 minutes and I'll have it all done!" hehe
With the aloe vera, do you dry it or what? I have tons of aloe plants and would love to add it to my soap!
(I really like that website btw! One of my favorites already!!)
