Soap Making and a Giveaway

soapmaing kit

I like to think I’m a jack of all trades when it comes to crafting. I might not be good at it but I have almost tried it all. However, I have never taken up knitting, crocheting or soap making… until now! I made soap this week and I loved it. Add it to the list of crafts I love to do! The people at Wholesale Supplies Plus asked if I would want to try out a soap making kit and I couldn’t say no. WSP is a company that sells a complete line of soap/bath and body making products with the packaging materials included. They usually sell to soap hobbyists or small craft-based businesses however they assured me it was pretty much fool proof and even a beginner could do it.

I chose to try the “My Teens Favorite Bar Soap Making Kit“. I was a little intimidated when I opened the box but it smelled so good that I soon forgot all about that. I love that they send everything down to the packaging and the FDA approved protective gear if you do want to sell this! There is a whole list of ingredients that were in my box HERE.

I dove right in following the recipe and directions and started making soap! (Excuse the bad kitchen lighting)  First, I had to cut the soap base which was easier than I thought. It cuts like butter.

Once I had all of my soap cut, I heated it up in the microwave. It didn’t say a time but somewhere between 2-2.5 minutes was good for me.

While it was cooking the next step was to chop the oatmeal scrub, I used my food processor. The boys thought I was making smoothies :)

After that, take your soap base out and make sure there are no more lumps. I thought it already smelled good at this point.

Next, it was time to add in the fragrance. I love this smell… Honey Almond, it’s actually why I picked this kit. I am very sensitive to smells and this one said “Sweetened summer honey touched with lemon, lavender, bitter almond, and ginger” I mean come on, YUM.

Then I added the Kaolin Clay (which I had to Google). Being the soap newbie I am I didn’t know why I needed this but apparently it makes the soap silky smooth and is great for sensitive skin. Sounds like a great ingredient to me.

Next I dumped in my chopped oat scrub and mixed it all together nicely, it was still warm at this point. This picture is from my first batch. I later learned that I didn’t actually chop the oats enough in this round causing them to stay at the bottom of my bowl and I didn’t get an even oat scrub outcome. Soap newbie.

After a good stir it was time to pour the soap into the mold.

I filled them a little too high in the first batch… oops, trust me when I say my other batches were far more pretty!

I waited a few hours then just like magic, I popped one out and IT WAS SOAP! That I made!

    Shopper Approved is based on the powerful concept called ‘social proof’, which states that:

    When a potential customer goes online to buy
    a product or service, they actually want and actively
    look for reassurance that they’re making
    the right decision. And the way they get that assurance is
    from other customers’ ratings, feedback, and reviews.

    This is why statistically, 77% of online shoppers turn to consumer reviews
    before they decide to buy!

    There’s a reason why Amazon, eBay, Sears, and
    pretty much every other major ecommerce site have customer
    ratings and reviews integrated into their website.
    It’s because online reviews have been proven to increase
    conversion, increase average transaction amounts, improve customer satisfaction, and even lower product
