Soap ~ My new addiction

 Oatmeal soap with Clover and Birch Oil.
 I've become addicted to making Soap. Cold-processed is the only way I've tried so far.  I love it.. I've made Two 1.5 lbs batches since I don't have much storage space and it takes 4 to 6 weeks for the soap to cure.

 Lavender Soap with Lavender and Tea Tree essential oils.
