Eliza and I have been doing some more soap making. We're using a recipe that only uses Crisco as the oil so it's cheaper to make than the other recipe that used olive and soy oil. We will see what difference it makes when we finally get to use the finished products.
The first one we did we boiled some ginger in the water and then added loads of cinnamon. That's why it turned out so dark. We are so excited it actually smells like cinnamon. We just hope it doesn't turn your hands black.
For this one we used some essential oil. We chose orange essential oil and added paprika to give it the orange colour. We used a pringles container and a crisco container to get the round shapes.
