I apologize for posting again so soon, but I just had to share with you the batch of soap I made today! I made lemon soap -- some with just straight lemon scent, some with poppyseeds, and some also with lemon peel.
I won't bore you with photos of the soap-making process. But here's the lemon/poppyseed/lemon peel, in a large square mold. I've just begun to texture the soap, using a spoon to scoop and dig up the soap as it's hardening, piling it up into a little mountain ridge. It's still soft and somewhat liquidy, so I had to keep at it, as it hardened more.
A few hours later, it's lightened in color and hardened well. I also sprinkled some cocoa powder lightly on top. In a couple of days I'll pop these two ridges out, and cut the soap up. I'll show you then what it looks like.
