    What is the best fragrance oil ever?

    Thank you, will follow your tips zany and Earlene. You are both such gems. @carlyB thank you, I have previously purchased a few times from NS and had shipping to Australia. Her shipping rates are fairly reasonable compared to others. But this time as I plan to be in US I thought I'd save on...

    Rosemary & Lemongrass

    Sounds lovely, may I kindly request your EO ratio? I have these oils and thinking to sell them off as my customers don’t really like EO scents. But maybe I’ll give your EO blend a try. Thank you

    Brown Spots

    Thank you all for the feedback. I actually master batched my oils. I posted some pics of my soaps from this batch on another thread, which are fine. However, one other soap (i have not posted that pic) has the same thing, which I noticed a few days after my original post above. In a nutshell ...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    Markets are a sure way to learn how to deal with all types. I had my first outdoor market last weekend. Glad my son assisted to set up the gazebo. Previously I had done a few indoor markets, table & chair was provided. This time I had to carry everything along. Thankfully I met lovely people...

    Brown Spots

    Hello all you wonderful sharers, My soap has brown spots. I'm thinking it's the fragrance. I'm also noticing that it's turning brown along the outer edges, which I have experienced before, and the entire soap eventually turned brown. But these brown spots are a first for me. Can anyone shed some...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    A beautiful soap. Would you be so kind as to share your ratios of the EO used? Thank you so much. I bought a carton of what I thought was palm oil, it's actually vegetable shortening. The boxes were similar. Unfortunately in haste melted and decanted into tubs before realising my error...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    Hi everyone, I'm no good with taking pics but I thought I owed it to @zany and @AliOop to post pics: I used @Zany's recipe for the lilac T/S soap.

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    I made soap after a month. And went slightly crazy, made 14 types. I used sodium gluconate for the first time and PKO. Was happy with the performance of the PKO after worrying it might harden too quickly, thank you @AliOop. And used Zany’s recipe for one bar, thank you for sharing @ zany...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    Thank you both you @ AliOop & @Resolvable Owl. @AliOop, I'm fairly certain I read your advise to someone else about using PKO, & as I have such confidence in you, I decided to try some. So glad for the tips. Do you melt yours separately from the other hard oils? @Resolvable Owl, as per...
