    Peaches 'n' Berries

    Very nice. I like the rustic look of the “mottled” effect of your oat milk. My Oat milk didn’t do that...Are you making your own milk or did you buy yours?

    Soap Stamps

    I have some from Aliexpress. Quite happy with the quality but shipping times can be a bit long.

    Too much Mica?

    Hello fellow soapers, So these bars started crumbling at the edges where the Micas are more saturated. It is not Lye heavy. There was a bit of Soda Ash, but this is different. Anyone had this happen before.

    Does anyone mix their colourants directly with their fragrance/essential oils?

    I think it is called a slurry...mixed fragrances and clays, colors.. People usually put it last in case it behaves badly. But if you have used this one before...then you can without fear of ricing or seizing.

    Patchouli and Anise?

    I have used this in a Beer soap made this week, and added some vanilla as well. Although you cannot smell it, the vanilla turned my soap quite dark which was perfect for Guiness beer... And all you can smell now is Anise and some patchouli. I like this scent very much, but will not be for everyone.
