    Bubble number, average or good?

    What's a good or average bubble number on the lye o meter? I am really struggling getting bubbles in my conditioning bars. I do not want to give up the good stuff in the recipes for bubbles. I want to know what's an average, pretty good number? like 24? maybe... help me.

    Coco glucoside in CP?

    I am wanting to boost the lather in some of my more conditioning recipes that include butters without drying my skin out. I bought Coco Glucoside to try making bubble bars with and I am wondering if anyone has ever tried it in CP. Fearing it will probably overheat, I have not tried it yet.

    coffee soap recipe idea

    I do that with my coffee soap, I never use FO. I use Satsuma from Starbucks. I add a little concentrated coffee oil(the black layer) at trace too. The scent is not strong but nice considering it's all naturally scented. Start with the strongest coffee for best results.

    Coconut Water & Lye?

    Good, I will be going full strength this morning then. I used half and half and the bright orange happened too. I added a few ounces of coconut milk to replace some of the water I held back too. I am very anxious to try this Coconut Hemp soap. Thanks for the input. You have made me very brave.

    Coconut Water & Lye?

    I am looking for any experience with coconut water instead of distilled water? Any help would be great. I am going to start out with half water, then add the coconut water at cool down before adding the oils. Wish me luck.
