  • Who knew...

    ...that re-batching could be SO PAINFUL!! I am in the process of grating unscented soap to re-batch into scented soap, and my wrists and back are killing me! Also, my feet and ankles are swelling for some reason.

    My food processor is useless, or I would use it. I am using a huge wood working plane and it is making gorgeous grated soap. It's not as miserable as using a cheese grater.

    And then last night - I got that one batch so beautifully creamy and poured it into the loaf mold and THEN realized I had forgotten to add the EO...for pity's sake. So I poured it back into the crock pot...today I have some beautiful looking and wonderful smelling soap but at what cost!!!! I simply MUST write down a list of the steps, and focus!!!

    Certainly sounds like hard work Susan! I find if I stand too long in on position I always get backache. You should try and take some breaks!!

          Hmmmmm, hunky men....this idea has possibilities...NOT that my husband isn't hunky...well, he used to be. =)

          Oh yes, the whole house smells divine - I added Egyptian Geranium EO - aaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, rosey!

              feeding the baby wuvvies is very tense - i need to relax and not be so afraid. And I have read that it's okay if the formula gets all over them - they'll be alright.
