    Dental soap

    I used stevia powder in a lip balm I made one time & it tasted awesome except the colour made it look mouldy.

    Dental soap

    Okay, I made a 4 oz batch using peppermint extract instead of eo. I used honey also instead of xylitol because it is more natural & I don't want to find out the hard way that I have an intolerance to xylitol (I have a lot of allergies). However, I did CP it, so, I'll hold off trying it for as...

    What about if you used extracts that you'd use in cooking or baking? Like peppermint extract or what-have-you?

    Shampoo Bar - Thanks Lindy!!

    Wow, this is an incredibly informative post on shampoo bars! I tried the no poo method with acv rinse almost 2 years ago & it was okay, but, I just couldn't get used to not lathering my hair. So, I hopped back & forth between commercial shampoo & no poo for a while until I started making my own...

    Instead of standing for hours steaming bars...

    That sounds more like body issues than locale issues. I grew up in a burb of Vancouver & don't have any such issues, neither do any of my friends. Def some body or cleanliness issue.

    castile soap

    Yes, I will be looking for an alternative. I might just melt down some of the bits of my own soap, stick blend them & try that.

    castile soap

    I was using dish detergent for a short time, & before that a thicker liquid soap & had not had the problem of the soap going off. So far it has been only with the Bronner's. As I mentioned, the problem I've had with the other liquid soaps has been the pump getting a bit sticky which is why I...

    Just "Plain Lye Soap"

    My understanding of "plain old lye soap" is that it's simply lard, lye & water. I have a couple of friends with minor skin problems who will only use "plain lye soap". I like the looks of your recipe though!
