This was my first attempt with lard and goats milk in a cold processed soap.
I really like the look of this soap. It went thru a partial gel. I was not expecting that. I tried to cool it down surrounding it with ice. I used Fruitasia Fragrance oil and they smell pretty good. I don't know if it is in my head, but I swear I can smell the lard. My fellow soapers tell me that I shouldn't be able to smell anything except my fragrance. I made beer soap with the same container of lard and don't notice the "lard" smell in them. I am going to give it a couple days and then take another whiff to see if what I smell. I have so many different fragranced soaps curing on my shelves, perhaps I just smell something else mixed in with this soap.
