Soap & fragrance making : a fun activity for the kids

Soap & fragrance making (  read here the know how in 3 steps ) is a fun activity enjoyed by kids, especially when it involves filling in molds.

But saponification still goes on after oil ( the acid part ) and sodium hydroxide ( a strong base ) have been mixed and heated in a pot. The mixture  has to dry several days to be safe.  It dries faster thin and flat on large plates. Then it can be hydrated with some water to form a paste that looks like on this picture.
