  1. Jackie Tobey Blend Reviews

    I made a soap with Boheme Dream (5%) two months ago. The scent softened over that time. But just began using it and found the scent really jumps back when the soap is in use. A spicy interesting scent. Very nice blend and my husband loves it. Definitely suggest you give it a try. I made...
  2. Jackie Tobey Blend Reviews

    My favorite from EO Calc is Clarity (Patchouli, Lavender, Bergamot). Made CP soap (5% EO) in October 2019, still has a soft scent in the soap. When used in the shower it is actually stronger. And definitely my favorite. Thanks for the information about Rocker. I will be trying it next...

    GLDA, a modern alternative to EDTA

    How much of each are you using? I usually only use EDTA. But just received my Sodium Gluconate this week. Today was the first day using it. I added it to lye water at 0.5% of total batch weight. I also added 1% CA. But I wondered about using both EDTA and Sodium Gluconate. And no CA.

    I need help with soy wax (even after a lot of reading)

    Here is a pic of the suds I get from this soap. It actually provides much more in the shower when I’m lathering up but I don’t believe that would be an appropriate pic for this site. Anyway, the lather is very lovely and wanted to share the follow up pic with you.

    Do you know if anyone has done a spread sheet on the EO Calc blends with reviews for each in different products?

    I need help with soy wax (even after a lot of reading)

    So I am adding to the testing of the soap I made with 20% GW415 soy wax. I have continued to use it and have changed my mind somewhat about how it feels after the shower. I'm not sure if I am just getting use to the feel of the soap or that it was an incorrect assumption after one use. I find...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    I will look for it. Don’t remember seeing it. But I have decided to start trying the ones that interest me and add to the EO call review thread. I can't find the EO blend review board. Is there one set up like the FO spreadsheet?
