Food that's multifunctional

Take these ingredients:
- olive oil
- water
- peppermint
- lemon

All things you can eat or drink, right? Add some Sodium Hydroxide (a.k.a. LYE- an ingredient commonly found in drain cleaner) and what do you get? Olive oil soap!

C and I made this batch around 5 weeks ago and it's been curing ever since, but tonight we packaged them up just in time for Christmas.

Nice packaging!
