With our busy lives its hard to sneak in a batch of soap. When I do get to make some its rare and usually for something special. This weekend I've made 2 batches of soap. Of those 2 I've managed to make just about every mistake in the book!!! Lye heavy, ricing, separation, over heating...just to name a few.
My batch today was supposed to be a beautiful funnel soap with lots of comfrey infused olive oil and comfrey powder. Do you think that soap would work?! NO! I'm so frustrated right now I could scream...time to do some yoga I think.
I think I've managed to save the batch. Its now a hot processed blob of poop, but at least its usable. The worst part is that both batches this weekend were for a special project I'm working on that I wanted to unveil next week. It may take a little longer now that I've got soap that is so ugly.
Oh well...chalk it up to lessons learned and a heavy dose of humility. : P
