    How does the avocado pulp replace water? Do you have to dilute it with anything? This has
    really piqued my interest.They were quite soft, I puréed the flesh though a sieve and froze it
    to slushy consi...

    If I had a bottle of avocado oil lying about I would either bump that 5% to 10% (lower the
    Olive oil if you do) or take it out altogether and use it for a lotion or sugar scrub. But
    that's just me - i...

  • Posted in thread: What does Soap Queen have against lard? on 01-10-2017 at 04:07 PM
    I've always just figured that since they don't sell lard, they ignore it? Or maybe there's a
    country bumpkin non-vegetarian stigma attached to lard amongst the soaping fashionistas?

    I think it also varies person to person - I have a 12 month old castile that I just love as a
    gentle facial bar. I detect no sliminess from it. I made a soaper friend try it and she went
    "ew slimy". I...

    I got the purple below by infusing alkanet in olive oil (I think it was 2 tbsp per 8 oz mason
    jar, warmed in slow cooker a few hours, then cooled and strained the next day). I failed making
    the patter...

    Carolyn made a nice chicken fat soap that, to me, was similar to lard in feel. I just hate the
    thought of wasting the delicious duck fat on soap! I braised some cabbage in duck fat Saturday
    night and ...

    In my head she also says it only needs a one week cure? Im with Gerry in that would make an ok
    laundry soap, or patio cleaner...If the Asian soapers only get 85% purity that might explain it
    - but my ...

    Weeeee - I remember my first "base" recipe: 30% coconut oil, 70% Olive oil at 6% superfat. I
    was SURE it couldn't get any better than that. And you know what? With a good long cure it is a
    sweet littl...
