Making more hot process soap

My hot process batch set up so fast I barely had time to line the mold with freezer paper. I mixed Olive, Coconut and Palm oils with a lye solution and I used my stick blender to stir it to trace and it only took about 5 minutes. Then I cooked it in the crockpot on high and went to check after about twenty minutes and it was already gelling.

Look at how wonderful and buttercreamy it was when I started! I love how it looks at that stage. Just a bit of it left in the first photo.  It will be lemon with bergamot and rosemary. yum.


I will cut it up tomorrrow. It's already gone through saponification.
