    The Worst Salt Bar in the World

    I like salt bars for their own qualities but, if you were looking for a practical reason you would need a bar to lather in salt water I figure if you do any ocean fishing they would be handy (or for coastal hobo-ing).

    I did a trifold infusion with coffee grounds CPed it. The lye monster ate all of the coffee scent (which was VERY strong going in). Was thinking about doing it again with HP and using the infused oil as a high SF anyone ever try something like this?

    Best simple EO combos for a "manly" scent?

    My very favorite masculine blend I have smelled so far is the blend kchaystack used in the alternative liquid swap. It was a cedar/lavender FO blend with peppermint EO. He did us a FO for the cedar/lavender blend but I'm sure you could get similar results with EOs.

    deodorant recipe-converting to grams

    I went to find my recipe book from when I was messing around with deos and I CAN'T FIND IT!!! I moved between seeing it last so I'm sure it's in the basement somewhere. If I find it I'll post the recipe I liked the most. The Baking Soda got to me pretty quick and become very unpleasant so I...
