One of my goals for the upcoming year is to revamp, or at least reorganize this blog, and become more diligent about posting projects and keeping up with the site. I haven’t been great at it so far, so I want to change that this year. I’ve been throwing a few ideas around that I am going to implement in the next few months, and one thing I am definitely adding is a monthly “Try Something New” project.
Yesterday, my daughter and I spent a good portion of the day making soap, which neither of us had ever done before, so I figured it would be perfect for my first entry!
Since we are beginners, we just decided to stick with the melt and pour process. I would like to keep experimenting and eventually try making it from scratch, but for now this was a fun and educational leap into the wacky world of soap making.
During the process, we discovered that we REALLY need to up our fragrance game, so I’ll be researching that for future soap crafting!
We made a few different concoctions, and like I said it was all experimenting, so we didn’t really measure anything. I will at least list the general ingredients with each one.
Peppermint Sea Salt
Green Tea and Ginger
This was a blast and a great way to spend an afternoon. The cleanup was super easy because, I mean… IT’S SOAP. I’ll definitely be making more in the near future.
