OK, I am feeling a little too accomplished right now!
I made a successful batch of homemade body wash.
Why am I so excited about it?
Because I had 3 unsuccessful attempts last week.
For some reason I was very focused on making a good batch of this stuff!
This final batch is made like this: Grate one bar of good quality soap. Bring 12 cups of water to a simmer over the stove and add the grated soap and stir until it dissolves. Add 2 tablespoons of glycerine and stir. Turn the heat off, put the lid on it and let it sit for about 10 hours until is thickens. I added 3 teaspoons of orange essential oil to the batch when it cooled off. Makes about 3 quarts for under $5.00 (I bought my bar of soap for $3.99 at the grocey store).
Next time I will use an unscented bar, but the almond was the only one I could find at the store this weekend.
So, that's my big success story.
Thanks for listening!
