Another soap maker here too (for family/friends). I out-did myself this year and made up eight batches. I make oatmeal/honey, lavender, peppermint, tea tree oil, coffee and cream, healing clay, and plain no scent bars. This year, for Christmas, I decided I would wrap up a few bars and give them to neighbors and coworkers also instead of sweets (as it seems everyone I know is allergic to something!). I feel so pampered using homemade soap (compared to those smelly chemical cheap bars I use to buy).
