sorry the editing sucks! i had so much footage and had to cut so much out.
OK here are the precautions w/ lye

Lye is extremely caustic--this means it is extremely harmful to you! Take extra mesureas to keep it out of direct contact with your skin, eyes, etc. we're talking longsleeves, pants, gloves, goggles, etc.

So if lye is so harmful to you why would i put it in my soap? well when the lye is mixed with the oils and allowed to cure it ceases to be caustic/harmful. And becomes a wonderful cleaning agent in soap!

Are the finished soaps harmful or burning? Absolutely not! They are pretty darn wonderful! :D

Lye, Distilled Water, Coconut Oil, Palm Kernel Oil, Shea Butter, Olive Oil, Castor Oil, Oats, Fragrance.

Hot Process Soap Vs Cold Process Soap:
(if your still reading this, your wonderful! :D)
Cold Process is when the oils and lye are brought to the trace stage and then poured into molds and left to cure for 6-8 weeks until the lye is no longer caustic. Pros: Smooth pour Cons: Long wait time to cure, uses much more essential/fragrance oils.

Hot Process speeds that all up and cures the soap during the heating process. HP soap is usable right away. Pros: Shorter Wait period until you can use the soap, needs less essential/fragrance oils since you add them after the lye is not caustic. Cons: Thick pour, can appear lumpy afterwards although this doesnt affect the outcome of the soap itself.

Ok that about does it. if you have any questions pm or comment me :D
