Heat in microwave for about 45 seconds (Instead of double boiling the vegetable soap base for more than 15 mins…I should try microwave vegetable soap base next time…may be it will work..will try next time)

First I made men’s soap. I got this very masculine fragrance called Rain from a store in LA. I melted my usual Shea butter, coco butter along with mango butter and mixed with the melted glycerin base.

There is my glycerin soap for men! Finish…took only 10 mins.

Now I started with women’s soap exactly with same ingredients except for the fragrance and colorant. I got a very flowery fragrance called Gardenia and beet root powder colorant. Trust me I could smell beetroot when I mixed….hmmmm…so natural 🙂

Now internet is my Guru for this soap making ….so I am making errors and learning from it. I added the colorant powder to mens soap mix which didnt get mixed very well so when I made my soap..I mixed it with wanter before adding to the soap mixture.
