    Soaping Temperatures?

    IrishLass, agree with your assessment, and I'd like to add tallow to your list of oils. I learned all about false trace with my second tallow batch. A sweet temp spot for me is between 111° - 115°. Any lower and I stress out about false trace. Any higher and it moves a little too fast for me.

    Large Equipment Soaps and Candles North Carolina

    dixiedragon, I just saw your post. I don't actually have any items on your list but it seems that you make lotion. I need to de stash because I no longer make lotion and we will be moving. I have some bottles and caps in various sizes. If you are interested PM and I can get some info on the items.

    Lilac soap

    You soap is so lovely - wish I could smell it because lilic is one of my favorite scents. My lilic FO is old and needs to be replaced - thanks for sharing where you got yours. BTW - nature does not do straight lines. I think your soap has movement, much like lilic flowers swaying in the morning...
