Here are a couple of photos of the soap I made yesterday. I'm quite pleased with the result for a first attempt. The soap came out of the molds really easily. After slicing the soap made in the loaf pan into bars (approx 130g each) and also one of the oval sour cream shapes in 2, we ended up with 13 good-sized bars of lavender scented soap.
Now it has to cure for 3-6 wks, until the ph is 9.5 (or close to it) so that it isn't too alkaline, which can be a bit harsh on the skin.
