I made my first ever batch of apple soap today and well, it went really well apart from the fact it nearly set in my saucepan, and i panicked trying to get it out and into the moulds Note to ones self never try and colour soap with natural food colouring ... green goes red !! that i didnt know
Congratulations on your apple soap. Bet it smells yummy. You found out the hard way, never use food coloring for making soaps. It will stain your skin or clothing, depending how much you use.
I almost never use any colorings in my products, but when i do...I recommend Crafter's Choice brand soap colorants.
They are safe, and very cost effective. Here is a link to the one's I keep on hand for special soaps.
A tiny bit goes a long long way....you can also look at the other colorants on the link Wonderful site for buying soap making products.
Enjoy your hand made soap! Wish I had been there to see you rushing before it set up....been there many a time myself. Did you breathe that sigh of relief after you got it into the molds.....Can you post a photo of your yummy apple soap? Would love to see it.
Today I'm making sea weed/kelp enzyme exfoliating soap...I'll post a photo later when it is dry. Also made a batch of dead sea salt, eucalyptus, nourishing mineral soap....
