    Looking for a Palm-Free New Basic Recipe

    Good to know! I tried it once and I think I remember overall it went well, but had to soap at a higher temp? I like soaping around room temp, which is usually around 80F where I live. I may give it a try again.

    Looking for a Palm-Free New Basic Recipe

    What are your best practices for preventing soda ash?

    Im on the soda ash struggle as well. I usually do not get ash if I pour at a thicker trace, but I notice I get it more when Im trying to do swirls or some design that requires a lighter trace. Today I unmolded and cut my lavender bar and had quite a lot of ash, im thinking due to light trace...

    love my 6 month old Salt Bar

    Just wondering what is the main reason to have it cure longer? I’ve asked other salt bar makers how long they cure their bars for, and they said 4-6 weeks.

    When to cut

    Hmm.. if it’s still warm I’d wait. What is your recipe? I usually wait minimum of 24 hours before unmolding, and then maybe even 1-3 days to cut depending on my recipe etc…

    Orange Patchouli soap cut and can’t wait until it’s done curing!! First time using hemp seed oil too. I’m feeling like a hippie with hemp and patchouli ☮️

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    I cut my newest batch today, still not 100% satisfied... but happy with it. First time using Soy wax. I can’t seem to avoid the soda ash...I used Tea tree, peppermint, eucalyptus, and lavender EOs. I also tried the line pour technique but ended up with this.
