I've been wanted to make tar soap myself for a long time, but only when Jan Berry published her recipe I grabbed from reflection to action. I made my soap following Jan's recipe, I only changed it to grams. I normally use MMS's lye calculator, but there was no tar in it, so I had to resorted to SoapCalc. I wanted to make my soap as OHP at first, but after I read Jan's instructions I thought that might not work out because tar could make soap really thick very quickly. That's why you shouldn't use stick blender either. Well, then I made my soap as CP, but I needed to use stick blender after all, because my soap didn't get the trace otherwise. Jan's tar soap is light brown, but mine is almost black. I wanted my soaps to be round, so I used a Pringles package as a mold. I was too busy - and lazy - so I didn't have time or energy to fight with taping and I thought that soap would press lining paper against to the mold, so I wouldn't even need to use the lining paper. Well, I was wrong and that didn't work as I thought, soap went between the paper and the mold and I didn't get round and beautiful soaps. But soap feels nice, and it leaves faint tar scent on the skin. I gave these soaps as Christmas presents.
Tästä saippuasta tuli kertakokeilulla uusi suosikkini. Olen aikaisemmin kirjoittanut kutiavasta päänahastani, tämä tervasaippua auttoi loistavasti siihen ja tuntuu muutenkin hyvältä iholla. Täytyy tehdä uusi satsi, koska nyt itselleni jäin vain yksi pala.
This soap became my new favorite after first time of using it. I wrote earlier about my itchy scalp, this tar soap helped amazingly with that and it feel nice on the skin. I need to make a new batch now, because I only got one bar from this one.
