    Has anyone experimented with making a bath oil with oil, FO, and polysorbate?

    I have been thinking about making my own bath oil with some skin friendly oil, FO, and polysorbate 80. Has anyone else done this? My thought was that the polysorbate would disperse the oil and FO into the water for a better experience. Thought I would ask if anyone had experience with this...

    I need to find some new gloves for soap making and around the house chores. I would prefer that they be mid-arm length and have enough heft to allow me to fold back a cuff. I would also prefer that they be lined. I looked for an hour or so online yesterday and gave up. The reviews are...
