Ever since I ran out of my most popular soap, Lavender Chamomile, during the holidays I’ve been making soap using hot process. I love the rustic marbled look and the rich, rough tops. Sure, I vans do fancy swirls or mica rivers but that’s not my style anyway. Those soaps are so beautiful and are truly works of art but can sometimes be too pretty to want to use. I want mine to be too good to NOT use!
Enter the humble crock pot. I started out with a small 2 quart one for melt and pour then started using our 4 quart kitchen crock pot for hot process. Now, I have 3 for hot process (and the small m&p one. Right now I’m trying out the new 8 quart boy I bought to make double batches. First up: why lavender chamomile of course!
