Soap making calls for using good quality healthy Organic oils, some of which are solid at normal day time temperatures. To make useable, they need to be melted before they can be measured, taking care not to scorch or overheat and ensuring that each step is completed so the resulting mixture retains all the benefits of the native ingredients. One of the delights of hand-made soap is that this process is not compromised and delicate ingredients are not sacrificed: it’s as good as the effort you put in.
Living in the Islands we have the added benefit of gentle temperatures and seldom experience significant swings. This helps with temperature management and assists in maintaining quality control.
