    Coconut oil

    Thanks for all the tips:) I will experiment and see what works best! It's 0.4degrees c this morning so I wouldn't mind visiting @Ugeauxgirl ! 🌞We had a frost overnight so it's very pretty outside but very cold too!!

    Coconut oil

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone has any tips for using coconut oil over winter? It's one of the main ingredients I use but I always find it goes extremely hard over winter and is tricky to get out the container!

    Anyone just have a bad month with the creating?

    I had a couple of months like that earlier this year - it's very frustrating! Soap definitely seems to have a mind of it's own! 😏

    Yellow spots appearing on soap

    I didn't use any fragrances, the alkanet was the only additive. I store the soap spaced out on coated cooling racks.

    Yellow spots appearing on soap

    Thank-you for your reply. The soap has already started to smell a bit off ! I didn't realise metals could affect soap - I used tin foil to cover a jar whilst infusing the oils with alkanet root so I'm wondering if this is how it happened.
