Hot Process Soap Making
Hot process soap making uses an external heat source to bring the soap to gel phase, where it can be poured into a mold. However, although this process provides a fine bar of soap and may be used the following day, the appearance is more rustic. If you have made soap for years but never used this technique it will be a great class to add to your soap making knowledge.
