There's been a lot of talk on soap making forums about using Aloe in CP soaps and after reading some advice from people who experimented with it I decided to give it a try, cause it was a cheap adventure this time having all of the ingredients in my kitchen and garden.

First I cut a leaf from my aloe plant, washed it and cut the sides wich have small thorns on it.

This time I wanted my soap round, so I used a Pringles box that I cut the bottom off, turned it bottom up and lined it with wax paper on the inside. I used some plastic wrap on the bottom side, then put the cap on and an elastic band arround the plastic wrap to additionally secure it.
