Soaping with the family

I just showed my dad how to make soap. He was such a good helper, maybe we will have another soaper in the family soon. We made a yummie smelling coffee scrub soap. They are great to use in the kitchen to remove scents after cutting onion and garlic. To make the soap a bit luxurious, we added some coffee butter and shea butter. Can't wait to try it out! It looked like melted cookies and cream ice cream...yum.

Killian's Carrot Cream Soap

--> I am making some Killian's Carrot Cream Soap today following the class on Yahoo's cream soap group. I am currently simmering some Killian's Red Ale to get rid of the alcohol. It smells pretty awful. I will post some pictures of my soap later today. If you don't know what cream soap is check out some of my previous posts where I made it here, here, here, and here.
