When that's done, I start adding lye to the raw goat's milk, which is frozen first. If used in liquid form, the lye burns the milk and it turns a ghastly orangey color. It was warm this day, so I did this step in the sink with ice to keep that mixture cool.
The soap goes thru a 'gel' stage, where a chemical reaction makes it super hot. It often is an odd color thru gel stage too, and it depends on what fragrance oils went into it that helps determine the color. some make it darker, some leave it lighter.
After labeling, I then take them to the stores that carry them, such as Stagecoach Gallery in Platte SD and Jungle of Flowers in Burke SD. Some has shipped to the Brookings Museum, then I restock my own showcase in my studio...which is very empty right now!
