    The "One Recipe" Theory - Question

    Thanks SO much, MoodyMama! Thanks for "getting it", RDC1978. Ha! I'll tell my pet emus (before I turn them into oil!) that you're into them. : ) Thanks Atiz Oh, that's SO interesting, Anstarx! I'm a very serious home baker with several amateur certificates, many tweaked recipes and a...

    The "One Recipe" Theory - Question

    Well, what I mean is that it is obviously NOT the oils that are affecting my different outcomes with different recipes, I don't think. And it's not the lye amounts, I don't think, although maybe I need to learn more about the calculators. Thanks for your answer. Well, I was/am trying to use...

    The "One Recipe" Theory - Question

    I've made about 25 batches over 2 years. I've collected recipes from various books and websites, some by AnnMarie. There are a few I like well enough, although many of them seem to have one problem or another: they distort the mica colors when added; they dissolve too quickly (less than 2...

    Rose FO or EO?

    Hello everyone! I'm getting deeper into soap making *thank you Covid-19* and I'm trying to find a good supplier for Rose essential or fragrance oil. When I began, I bought a big brown jar of it, but along the way I used it up and now I cannot figure out where I bought it nor whether it was...

    A groovy patchouli soap

    Gorgeous soap! Nice work! May I ask, please, where did you source your Patchouli oil? I can't find anywhere reasonable. Bulk Apothecary wants to sell me a drum full of it! I just need a few ounces. Thanks! And again, congrats!

    Question about Colorants

    Hi Todd -- When I watch (endless) soap making videos, I see people adding just a few tsp of Titanium Dioxide, for example, with a bit of water and suddenly -whoosh! 3# of Pomace turns white like a 1980s refrigerator! When I watch AnnMarie sprinkle just 2 tsp of pink mica to a split batch and...

    Question about Colorants

    Extremely helpful! I end up with dark micas leaking colors onto everyone's showers and bathtubs, which has been a big problem. This is so helpful!

    Best CP Soap Books?

    Anne Marie's book "Pure Soap Making" really DOES have such a spread on pp. 52-53. It's quite informative. The situation I find is that to make any of the recipes in this book, one must buy her rare and extremely expensive ingredients, and often the batches are so tiny (4-8 bars) as to be...

    Diffusion of micas question

    You know how Ann Marie talks about diffusing X tsp of mica in X T of some kind of oils, often sweet almond? When I am using a NON-Brambleberry recipe, I don't know how to decide whether I should... Use a portion of the lightest oil already included in the recipe to dissolve Add a portion in a...
