I make soap the cold-processed way (with lye) because it's how my daughter taught me. I guess it's the most traditional way, and I like that, but it definitely is not the easiest way. Also, I find it hard to make really pretty soap this way, but I try. I wanted some spring color, so I swirled some green and lavender oxide pigment on top of these soaps. Still not really pretty, but at least a bit of color. They are now just starting six weeks of curing. Once soap is used, it's not pretty anyhow, so I guess it doesn't matter!
