    Soaping with rice oil

    Good luck! The only way to find what works is to try and see. It took me quite a while to find my favorite soap recipe.

    70% Rice Bran Oil soap

    Beautiful, Dawni! I still have a few bars of my 80% RBO soap, and no DOS. RBO soap is also my favorite bar these days. I may have to try your new shared recipe. I really appreciate how generous you are with your recipes! How much rice powder and coconut milk powder do you usually add to a...

    Linoleics Anonymous

    My 80% RBO soap cures out the same. Slimy and ropy during the first couple of months, then lovely and silky with a 6 month cure. I have used EDTA in all my batches, and it is a couple of years old with no DOS.

    New Sub-Section for The Soap Making & Craft Forum

    I think this response is a bit hyperbolic. We disagreed. One of the admins asked that he not do this, and we supported our unpaid admin who keeps this forum going. If they do it for him, they will have to do it for everybody who has a special interest, and that could result in a lot of...

    New Sub-Section for The Soap Making & Craft Forum

    Well, you won't drop it, so that is my definition of being pushy. You are a relatively new member, and you are trying to rally members to force the admins to do your bidding. You are right, that is my perception. I bear you no ill will, but this is not a popularity contest or for that matter...

    New Sub-Section for The Soap Making & Craft Forum

    Having been on this forum for a while, I can tell you that intense interests come and go. I have been making my shaving soap for years, and I did most of my research on Badger and Blade and then here. For quite some time, there was very little interest in shaving soap, then it popped back up...

    Coronavirus

    Zing, I am so, so sorry! The Delta variant is scary and so hard to duck. I hope your wife feels better soon, and that you stay negative. Sometimes no matter how careful you are, it finds you. I will be sending all positive and healing thoughts to you both along the airwaves.

    Coronavirus

    UNCLE. Now that I have tried to provide you with facts, I am going to tell you how I actually feel. I am STUNNED and find the arrogance of people who are not medically trained arguing with someone who is just breath-taking. I would never be arrogant enough to tell you how to practice law...

    Coronavirus

    Yes, that is a very small study, but more importantly, it is not a double blind study, with no control group, so it means nothing. If you have no control group that did not receive the treatment, you don't know if these people would have gotten better with or without his protocol. Am I...

    Coronavirus

    Dr. Robert Malone did not invent the mRNA technology, and he was removed from LinkedIn because he inferred that he did. He did write a paper in 1989 about the potentials for RNA technology. That hardly makes him the inventor of mRNA vaccines. He has admitted since then that he didn't invent...

    Coronavirus

    I don't think the assertions in this video are true. This is the physician who is being sued by Baylor for stating far and wide he is affiliated with them when he has not been affiliated with them for some time. They do not wish to be named as his employer because they feel he is an...

    Coronavirus

    I think it would be counterproductive for me to go back and review all your posts for to point out misinformation since my reply to someone else that didn't even involve anything except an encouraging remark to her made you angry. You say above that you are "all for it" when people disagree...

    Coronavirus

    My response to Mobjack Bay should not have made you angry. I don't believe I mentioned the word "expert". My reply was meant to be encouraging (her campus has had stellar results from their efforts), and it was not directed at you, it didn't involve you, and it had nothing to do with anything...

    Hooray for you and your campus! Following the science and using critical thinking really does foster having the best outcomes. There are bumps in the road, but without doubt, the best outcomes. You must be very relieved to be working in such a wise environment!
