So I finally designed my own soap recipe, and made it a few days ago.
It is 100% Vegan, (of course) saponified canola, vegetable, palm, coconut, castor, beeswax, lemon essential oil and eycalyptus. It smells great, and has a really nice texture already.
We took it out of the mold and cut it today in what was a stroke of genius by my husband.
He made a handheld garrote type cutting tool with wire and a loop at either end to hold onto. We slid the soap out of the mold (pvc pipe) one bar size at a time and used the edge of the PVC pipe to mark a clean straight line to cut through. It worked great! And the soap turned out beautifully, I can't wait to make more!
