Can't wait to unmold!

Finally made this one this evening, and my whole dining/living room smells wonderful! I'm looking forward to the unmasking... I mean unmolding. I know I'll have to wait longer because I used a silicone mold, but it's still going to be fun to add this to my curing shelf.

Great soap!

I've made a few batches of this soap. It is detailed enough to make you feel like you're doing something complex, but so easy to do! The soap turns out wonderfully. I get several requests for more of this soap!

Part of soap stayed in mold!

It seems like I waited forever to make this soap. Partly, because I kept forgetting to pick up the almonds from the store. The recipe was easy to follow and the combined scents were amazing. Everything seemed to be going well until the unmolding. Unfortunately, a small section of the almond portion remained in my mold. I waited around 32 hours to remove even though the recipe said after 24 hours. Since I used a silicon mold I didn't line it. The almond section was still soft. I'm still new to soaping but this wasn't my first batch. Should I have lined the mold or waited another day?

Hi Cassandra! I'm sorry this product wasn't your favorite. Good news, you don't need to line silicone molds! However, it does take longer to release your soap from the silicone mold, up to a week. To speed up this process, you can add 1 tsp. of Sodium Lactate per pound of oils to your cooled lye water. I'll be emailing you personally to troubleshoot!

Great kit, easy enough for a beginner

This was my very first soaping experience, and I loved it. The soap itself seems very moisturizing. I skipped the almond meal simply because I didn't have any and it did just fine without it. The lavender herb fragrance did accelerate my soap batter but I was also soaping at higher temperatures so I think the temp played a big factor in acceleration. So fun! I'm going to stick with the kits to help build up my stash and to give me confidence to try my own recipes :)
