Synopsis:

December 2010

We try making our own soap


December has been quite busy, with poor weather giving us all kinds of problems. Deliveries (in and out!) have been interrupted and movement around the croft has been harder than usual. However, the animals all seem to be coping well, even if they are already looking forward to the warmer weather in Spring!

Since spending time outside has been less than attractive, we've turned our attention to pursuits indoors - including our first try at soap making.

Using lard (from our last pigs), goats milk, olive oil, and a little caustic soda (measured very accurately indeed!), we produced 3 blocks of soap, including one with added oatmeal 'exfoliant'. Now cut into pieces it will need to cure for several weeks, but we're looking forward to trying it out.
