Tidying Up the Medicine Chest

(Finally) Making the Christmas Soaps
I've been a tad busy lately, and so the Christmas soaps have just been made, but not from my usual recipe, that takes six weeks to cure. On Tuesday I had a couple of hours almost free and Thomas was home to help, so we brought out the pans and bowls, and th...
