Homemade Soaps

What are you most proud of? I'm most proud that I finally accomplished what I had dreamed of doing for years! What advice would you give someone starting this project? 1) Read the directions the whole way through before starting. 2) Get all your supplies ready and find a well-ventilated work area. 3) Wear a long sleeved shirt and closed-toed shoes along with the other recommended protective clothing. 4) Heat the oils first and let them cool slightly before mixing the lye with water. Unlike the oils, once your lye-water cools beyond the appropriate temperature it can never be reheated safely.
