    To those who ship to canada?

    Just be aware that any international postage printed on line (paypal and click-n-ship) you are limited to the classes that you can send. You can't pre-print first class international postage. When I ship to Canada, I prefer to use click-n-ship it's easier for some reason, and yes you will...

    shipping challenge

    I actually check that each and every time I mail a package out. I check the amount of s&h the buyers has paid me and what I paid the USPS, and give the buyer a refund of the difference of anything over .99 cents.

    HARD bar recipes?

    I suggest you sit down with soapcalc and just start working with oils and numbers until your happy with the results. I'm not posting a specific recipe because I have no idea what oils you currently have or what your preferences are. But yes it is possible. Personally I think 40 is plenty...

    Rebatching Help...

    Another thought is to not use 100% coconut oil....... how about 70% coconut and the remainder other various oils of choice? salt bars don't suds, it's more of a lotion type lather....... very creamy

    Tallow only soap recipe?

    Are you asking about a recipe that ONLY contains tallow or are other oils acceptable as well. (coconut, castor, sunflower, soybean, safflower, one of the many butters etc) BTW, I think it's great you have goals set for the future, and while it's a lot to understand and learn, it's really...

    Testing PH

    Tasting will only tell you if lye is present and not the pH of it. I personally don't test the pH of my CP soaps. I know this topic has been discussed quite a bit in the past, have you tried using the search option to read up on it? If your concerned about having lye still be present in...

    goat milk lotion recipe needed

    but it would have made dandy wallpaper paste.... Well I might have needed to add a horse hoof to get the stickiness, but it was way to thick to use..... But it was a great learning experience.

    Lotion turned out frothy

    I've never used olivem 1000 before so I can't say anything about that product or how it's used or the outcome of the final product. But you don't mention a thickener such as stearic acid being used? But I'm guessing the salt might be the issue. A long time ago I tried to make an Epsom...

    Wedding favor help

    Thank you Tabitha, I edited my post to say i was sorry for making that error. But it's also very important for people to give all in the important information necessary when posting, which was not done. And I wasn't the only one who made assumptions about the vague information given...

    goat milk lotion recipe needed

    That would be some thick cream !!!! Oh wow, similar to a recipe I worked with and was trying to formulate something but ended up reducing the stearic acid and e-wax on. You could have used it for wal-paper paste it was that thick. Least to say I ditched that recipe, and the above recipe has...
