    Question about Labeling?

    So I made a Green Tea & Activated Charcoal Soap and my friend is interested in purchasing. I boiled water, added real green tea, and a day later when I made soap added it to my soap base. My question is, how I include green tea in the label? Do I just put... "Water with Green Tea" or just...

    When using raw honey in soap, are you limiting your color options?

    I want to make a honey and oatmeal soap but after reading and watching soap making videos, I realized that a majority of them do not bother to color their soap.

    Can I sprinkle dry green tea on top of my soap for decoration?

    I'm making an unscented green tea soap with activated charcoal (yay!). I infused green tea in boiling water and put it in the freezer overnight.

    I want to make a soap with honey, will it volcano?

    I want to make an unscented soap with oatmeal and organic honey. I've read that 1 tablespoon per pound of oil is rule of thumb when doing so, but I have never added any sugars to my recipe before and I'm scared that it might volcano. I'm trying to make a 4 pound batch. My mold gets pretty hot...

    Adding Coconut Milk?

    My recipe includes 18.86% Coconut Oil, and I'm worried that adding coconut milk will be too drying to the skin (since I heard too much coconut can irritate skin). What do you guys think? Should I use another type of milk?

    Do I need a thicker...hanger? For my swirls?

    The bent a hanger in order to do my swirls in my 4 pound mold. It's pretty thin and I think it's okay but my swirls never stray too far from the color so I don't get the wispy swirls I see everyone else get with their soap. For the pink soap I made for Valentines Day, I added the colors in...

    I've made the same batch before with the same ingredients-- the only thing I did different was discount 2 oz of oil from my recipe, separated it into two cups and mixed in two different colors. Afterwards I separated my batch in half, added colors in, the scent, and poured it into the mold. Am...

    Feeling Discouraged

    I have made 3 successful batches of soap. I usually do one batch a day but since I'm pressed for time and I wanted to try to sell them around Valentines Day I decided to do two batches in one day. And that's when hell happened.
