My first soap

Today I conquered my fear of caustic and made my first batch of soap. I used an 80% olive oil / 20% coconut oil mix, with a bit of oatmeal, plus lavender and bergamot oils.

It smells very olive oil-ish (I used local oil) so we'll see how it works out, and I'll post updates.

I used an old plastic fruit tray for the mould, and the bit of excess went into an old milk carton - which I "should" be able to just slice in a day or so.
