I chose to make my second batch of soap in a crockpot as I did my first. Its one of the ways to Hot Process soap vice Cold Process. It's acroynm is CPHP - Crock Pot Hot Process. One of these days I am going to try CPOP - Cold Process Oven Process. You can make bigger batches that way as you shouldn't fill your crock pot more than 1/2 full or you may have a bubble over. I had a bubble over last night even though it was only half full but I didn't keep an eye on it. I had wandered into the living room. Bad Donnita!!
The recipe I made is as follows. I use some animal fats in my soap. This time I used some beef tallow. Most folks that make homemade soap to sell don't as many people are either vegan or don't understand the wonderful soaps animal oils make. But since I make it for me I do what I want. I made a 2 lb of Oil batch and molded in my 3 lb log mold I got from a lovely Etsy seller. Her dad makes these molds.
