[soapcraft] Re: Soap swap

HI all

Yes, happy to do this - lets face it soap is a very subjective thing.I have
already no doubt overcritiqued mine, but hey its only one bar and theres
plenty more to be made.  Im in Queenstown at the moment and at the market
by the lake there were two completely different kinds of soap for sale, one
I preferred way more than the other beacuse of the base oils used, but the
other looked amazing and original, and smelt great.
