    Bergamot, Benzoin, and Cedarwood Help

    Hi All, 1. A while back I made a blend of Bergamot, Tea Trea and Cedarwood for a CP soap. I usually premix my EOs right before I start soaping, so they have about an hour to mingle. I noticed that my Cedarwood and Bergamot seeded to disappear. Has that happened to anyone else when you have...

    can you successfully gel goat milk soap?

    Would love to know how people do it without watching it like a hawk. I just made a GM batch and left it out for 3 hours. Was just getting ready to leave the house for the gym when I noticed it starting to crack - so in the freezer it went. I was so paranoid about a potential volcano even in...

    Foaming Bath Whip Question

    I have noticed that many of the recipes I come across for scrubs contain Foaming Bath Whip. My issue is that I don't like all the ingredients found in commercial bath whips. Can you make a bath whip for use in scrubs without using the pre-made kind with all the things in it I try to keep out...

    Sugar/Salt Scrub Containers

    Hi, Wondering what company folks go with to package their scrubs. I looked into Alpha packaging, but they have a $500 minimum and I am not at that level, yet. I bought some clear containers from WSP, but they leaked (no liner available for the one I bought). Any leads would be much...

    Lumpy coconut milk soap

    Coconut Milk Soaps - Guar Gum I just went to the health food store, and the only coconut milk they had contains guar gum. I have read on this forum that the additive will speed up trace. I am wondering if someone who has used CM with GG can tell me if I should cease and desist (LOL!!!). If...

    Will these metal thins hold creams and salt scrubs without leaking?

    Tins for body butters/scrubs/etc. I would say no. I bought a body butter at a festival in a tin and it was solid the day I bought it. Then the next day, I noticed it got soft. Well, I didn't think twice about it. The next day, at an important meeting I was presenting at, I opened it up -...

    Prices much too low.

    Cost of supplies Newbie question: How do you figure out your cost per bar? I don't have any soaping software packages, yet, so not sure how to calculate without it. Are there simple and free ways to calculate?

    how do i start selling full time? and write a successful business plan

    I am new to selling ( I have had my soaps at a local indoor farmer's market), and I will be at a show in June, July, and August, and hopefully another quaint shop just north of me. I have had similar concerns. I really love empowering others and my experience with fellow soapers is that they...
