Making soap and then making more soap!

I have been very busy these past few weeks after Christmas making soap and then making more soap! Now even though I tripled my inventory from last Christmas season to this one, I did run out about 2 weeks before the Holidays. Not bad, but also not so good either. I don’t think you should ever run out of your product – but on the other hand Yay for me and my business right?  🙂 

So like I said I’m making soap. My brother had made me a bunch of soap molds earlier and for Christmas the boys knew that I could use even more so they had someone make me 11 more molds! Holy Smokes! I think I have a total of 18 wood molds. I’m cooking with steam now!!

With our kitchen off limits to any kind of meals for longer than I want to admit, and with the pizza pazzaz our new best friend, I am busy making soap for the Spring along with some custom orders that people were interested in. I usually make around 2 to 4 batches a night and hopefully will be able to keep up that momentum for a couple of months. It would be nice to get a little ahead of the game this year!  I’m not sure where I’ll put all of this soap – but I guess we’ll deal with that when we get to that point. 

Here are just a couple of the ones that I’ve made these past few nights

Literally my 5 gallon pails are getting pretty empty of coconut oil and other oils that I need so it looks like I will have to put in the next order for supplies soon. It seems like it’s going to be a very busy Spring!

    Your soap looks SO GREAT!!! I take it that you enjoy making soap so much that making two or four batches every night for weeks does not bother you…Which sounds like you have found a small business that you love to do! Congratulations!
