i use Irish Moss. I soak the moss over night. and rinse clean
I blend the seaweed with some water and boil until i create a paste.
1 cup of fluid requires 1 oz of seaweed extract.
u believe the type that is affordable is IOTA you can double the extract for a firm jelly.
you can add to this paste colorant surfactant. oils. walnut shells etc. and presrvative.
creating a soap paste. or place them in molds
