Handmade Bar soap

Making soap is something I have wanted to do for a long time. I did a lot of research and finally got up the courage to try it.  I was kind of scared off with the lye thing for a while and how dangerous it can be.   Well it was a lot of fun and I am pleased with the outcome.  This is what it looked like after curing wrapping and tagging it.  It does take some work but it was a lot of fun.  If you would like to buy a bar from me and try it out let me know.  The proceeds will go to feed and clothes hungry children (mine) joke was needed here.   Don't tell my family but can you guess what they will probably be getting for Christmas. 
So far I have Cinnamon Oatmeal, Coconut Orange Oatmeal, and Romantic Rose (not pictured).  If you want to try to make a batch yourself I highly recomend you do no tackle this with chilren around.  I did mine at night after they went to bed.  You can find a lot of info online.

Where did you get your recipe? I buy soap from etsy.com but have wanted to make my own. The information out there is overwhelming!
