Back to Basics of Melt and Pour

How do you like these soaps?  Not my usual cold or hot process soaps, in fact these are melt and pour.  I am sure that most soap makers have all dabbled with them at one point or another.  These are the stops I first made when I discovered cold process soap making.  I use to love making these soaps . . . actually the impatient side of me still loves making these.  Personally, I love it went my 8 year old comes around and says "Mom, I want to help you make soaps today".  I think that is why I still love it, because I can make soaps with him.

I have a customer . . . her daughter has fallen in love with these soaps and she wants 300 soaps, lotions, and lip balms in pink organza bags by September 4th.  I am a little pressed for time because I got real sick after coming back from the Smokey Mountains.  The only thing that keeps me from panicking is the fact that these are simple to make.  I use the SFIC soap base.  It's made in California.  The company has great customer service...and for those of you who make M&P soaps.  Check them out:

I find it interesting that after years of making soaps, I always have customers that pick those transparent melt and pour soaps over the cold and hot process ones. The look is what sells them.  That is what make making and selling so interesting to me.
