    Looking for a recipe for a super light facial moisturiser

    I've been scouring the internet for a recipe for a light, non greasy, non waxy feeling, quick absorbing facial moisturiser. So far I haven't found what I want, which is all of the above, and a water free, oil/butter only version. Most have e-wax or aloe vera gel in it. I'd rather not use either...

    Ideas of what to mix with these EO's?

    Oooh, Teresa, that sounds so good! Would love the 'recipe' for that :) Dibbles, I'm going to have to try that first blend, it sounds good. I have Ylang Ylang but not Amyris...what does it smell like?

    Want to increase richness in a recipe I like...

    Is KOH as readily available as NaOH? I haven't ever looked for it in town :) Or would I have to order it from an online supplier?

    Want to increase richness in a recipe I like...

    So: 35% Olive Oil 20% Coconut 35% Lard 5% Castor 5% Almond Would it be better to switch out the Almond for Avocado or just lower the Almond more and put the extra % to Lard?

    Kchaystack...looked at the wrong column of %...wow it's a bad day for me! Okay. Right %'s are: Olive Oil: 35% Coconut: 30% Lard: 25% Castor: 3.3% Almond: 6.7% SO sorry about that :lol: dixiedragon...thick, creamy, soft, luscious. Makes you want to just keep using it! My base recipe...

    Want to increase richness in a recipe I like...

    I would like to increase the rich, creaminess and lasting ability of lather in the following recipe...but I don't want to change it too much because I really like the cleansing power and bar hardness of this recipe. Any tips? 8.4oz / 23.8% Calendula Infused Olive Oil 7.2oz / 20.4% Coconut...

    Another CP Soap Problem!

    At the beginning I add my lye to the goats milk. I use it instead of water. Now that's a good idea, Shunt2011 :) Will have to try it.
