I made soap for the return thanks favours.
The soap ideally needs 6 weeks to cure and harden so it will be just right when the baby is born.
Here is my recipe:
I used 2000g beef tallow for moisturising quality and bar hardness
1000g olive oil for creaminess and lather
250g coconut oil to give cleaning but not enough to be too stripping
1235g distilled water
48g of blended essential oil (lavender, lime and bergamot).
After removing them from the mould and cutting into bars I stamped them with a set of alphabet cookie "stamps" that I purchased from Avon a while ago. You can stamp with rubber stamps too but these cookie stamps being rigid give a great impression.
We then followed the invitation theme through to the the thank you packaging.
