Egg Soap Making with Calendula Infused Oil – Soap Challenge Club

Egg Soap Making with Calendula Infused Oil. This was my entry for the April Soap Challenge Club – to create a rustic soap with packaging. Lather test at 04:45. Be sure to watch in HD. 🙂

If you’d like to read more information about this soap, the process, and why I chose my ingredients, you can read my detailed blog post that I wrote for the soap challenge –

In case you’re interested, I have an affiliate store where I’ve listed all of the soap making supplies and materials that I purchase on Amazon:
If you use those links to buy anything, it won’t cost you anything extra, but I will receive a very small percentage of the sale. Every little bit helps, though, so thank you very much if you do! 🙂

Remember to always wear safety glasses and gloves when making soap. I also recommend long sleeves and closed toe shoes. If you’ve never made cold process soap before, Soap Queen TV has an excellent YouTube video series for beginner soap makers, starting with this one on lye safety and ingredients:
