The first round I heated in short bursts over 3 days. I would turn the crock-pot to low for a half an hour at a time. I don't have a keep warm setting unfortunately. Since I don't want to ruin the oil by overheating it, it takes me a little longer to work the heat.

I love the fact that you can use everyday things to color your soaps. And there are so many wonderful and generous soaping bloggers that are so very generous with all or their knowledge. I am extremely grateful to all of you fine folks! I don't know if I am going to like the results of the black cocoa, but I think that the mace is going to work really well for bakery style soaps.

I love the challenge and experimentation of making soap. It is a ton of fun. I look forward to seeing what the soap will turn out like using these oils. I will post pictures as I cut the soaps. Til later folks!
