To sieve with it using solid materials you have to physically push the pumpkin (or whatever) through the mesh. Once the "puréed" pumpkin is pushed through put it back into the saucepan and dry it out carefully over the heat until it is quite stiff for best results in soap.

I just use pumpkin right out of the can. 😀. I just finished making my own purée from 8 pie pumpkins. Can't wait to use some in soap. The rest is for pies and pumpkin rolls.

Can you hear my stomach growling? Gosh y'all are making me hungry!!

Hey Dixie, thanks for the tip on the pumpkin for dogs. I know all three of mine love pumpkin flavored treats, but didn't know it was actually good for them. I'll add that to the list of stuff to get when they're feeling puny.

As far as a scent, I'm really pleased with WSP's Farmhouse Cider. I tried 6 different cider scents, and that was by far my favorite.

None of which I am aware.

You do realize fragrance appreciation is really subjective. Example: I made beer soap that retained the fragrance of beer for quite a long time. Personally I don't enjoy the scent of beer, but there are other people who like smelling beer.
Kombucha tea was another drink that carried a strong scent into the soap, that lasted quite awhile. In fact, even though it has faded, I can still smell it in soaps I made several months ago. I don't drink Kombucha tea, so am not thrilled with that scent either. But perhaps it would be a welcome fragrance to a Kombucha tea enthusiast.

So all I can recommend is trial and continued trial. You have to decide for yourself within your own experience.

If you find a scent that you really like and you find, in the SMF fragrance reviews, someone else that really likes it too, you will be able to keep an eye on the other scents they like as you may have similar "noses".

I have found this works.
I have a friend who has a totally different scent appreciation to me so I know if she loves a scent it is a pretty sure bet that I am not going to like it.
