    Rosemary & Lemongrass

    Sounds lovely, may I kindly request your EO ratio? I have these oils and thinking to sell them off as my customers don’t really like EO scents. But maybe I’ll give your EO blend a try. Thank you

    Brown Spots

    Thank you all for the feedback. I actually master batched my oils. I posted some pics of my soaps from this batch on another thread, which are fine.

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    Markets are a sure way to learn how to deal with all types. I had my first outdoor market last weekend. Glad my son assisted to set up the gazebo. Previously I had done a few indoor markets, table & chair was provided. This time I had to carry everything along. Thankfully I met lovely people...

    Brown Spots

    Hello all you wonderful sharers, My soap has brown spots. I'm thinking it's the fragrance. I'm also noticing that it's turning brown along the outer edges, which I have experienced before, and the entire soap eventually turned brown. But these brown spots are a first for me. Can anyone shed some...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    A beautiful soap. Would you be so kind as to share your ratios of the EO used? Thank you so much. I bought a carton of what I thought was palm oil, it's actually vegetable shortening. The boxes were similar. Unfortunately in haste melted and decanted into tubs before realising my error...
