    Lotion sticks, salves and balm`s in paperboard

    ice cream was just an example of course. I was hoping to also hear from what some others solutions might be, just because I know most are not shipping individual product orders using insulated containers with cold packs...that would probably be (although I`ve not checked) cost prohibitive for...

    Lotion sticks, salves and balm`s in paperboard

    going back many years, grocery baggers would put frozen foods and especially Ice Cream in paper bags. the bags weren't lined or insulated in those days. so my thinking is that lined paperboard must have some insulating qualities that could keep room temp, oils , butters from melting. paper...

    Lotion sticks, salves and balm`s in paperboard

    Does anyone package their products this way? I`ve been using tins and glass. With summer temps getting hotter and hotter for longer I`m trying to get away from that. I didn`t do any festivals or market`s this summer at all, but last I was always stressing about keeping everything in the shade. I...

    Anyone use hydrosols?

    I made a rose hydrosol and used it in soap this summer, I was surprised how much fragrance and color came through the lye. I added the lye when the hydrosol was very cold. It`s one of my best sellers,although my rose bushes were not very attractive afterwards...lol

    Finely ground oatmeal

    I grind my oatmeal to a fine powder which is the same as colloidal oatmeal. I like the idea of soaking the oats in milk though.

    Cp & hp

    I was wondering if I could safely HP freshly made CP soap in my crock pot? This is an African Black soap and while I`ve omitted using the plant materials for the lye process I have used all the correct ingredients. The reason I want to HP it is just to get the rustic look. I`ve never...

    Well at least I hope some of the properties come through. That`s where I find the most joy in making soap,concocting my own recipes( I always use a Soap Calc). I have been selling soap about 4 years now,making it for almost six. I put a lot of time into making my soaps safe and my labels...

    Selling to Soon

    This is my first post...I`ve been lurking ooops LEARNING for years. I was urged to post because I wanted to ask a question and get some opinions. I see how many of you are down on the "medical claims" that some use as a selling point. I make soap (CP) and I grow a lot of herbs and it`s fun...
