Oatmilk red currants soap

Oatmilk has a smell that makes me nearly gag when its added to lye....but nothing is better for skin than oats. So when the lye is ready...the smell is gone then you can get to making soap.

In the pot swirl of strong pink, blue violet, coral reef blue, and blaze orange ....poured into a white base. Red Currants for scent and Rice Bran oil for superrfatting. I poured it into a 4 pound mold and let it set for 3 days....then the challenge of getting it out ensued as it stuck to the mold when the paper got compromised from seepage. Haha should have seen the look on my face!

All's well that ends well, the soap looks and smells amazing and ii have since figured out how to clean the mold.
