Hot Process Soap

As a soap maker, I make exclusively hot process soaps. I adore the process of watching the lye and oils transform from liquid to solid to liquid to solid. I'm impatient and I like to use my soap NOW instead of waiting 4-6 weeks that cold process soap takes to cure. I like not worrying if my fragrance will make my soap seize up or rice or result in soap on a stick. I love the convenience of having no caustic products hanging around my house when I finish a soaping session. And I love playing with the texture of my hot process soap to get swirls and textures. Here are some examples of the soaps I've created.
