Castor Oil Bubbles

When I re-batched the soap I talked about in yesterday's post, I learned something.

I needed to add the oil I'd forgotten to add when I first made the soap. I was initially going to use avocado, but had recently read something that reminded me that castor oil helps give great lather. When I read this it reminded me that years ago when I made shaving soap that was one of the key ingredients. So just for fun I decided to see what would happen if I added half castor oil as the superfatting oil and half jojoba.

Do you see the bubbles above. This was what happened after I poured the soap in molds and filled the crock pot with water. What a fabulous lather.

Now I can't wait to use the soap.
