What materials did you use? olive oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter, canola oil, safflower oil, lye, distilled water, "soap-only" crock pot, utensils for measuring, blending and stirring the soap from start to finish.

What are you most proud of? the swirls look like I wanted them to. It has a nice fragrance and the soap lathers really well.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Read all the information you can on soaping before you even begin. Keep a gallon jug of vinegar on hand through out the process, wear protective clothing including goggles and rubber gloves, shoes (not flip flops). Can't be too safe with the lye and hot soap.

so pretty; shall I assume it is lavender? I just love the smell of lavender!

Oh my, had no idea those were poppy seeds in the bar of soap until I read the details.
