    How old can soap be to use as Confetti?

    I have some old bars that I would like to use to make a Confetti soap. How old can they be to use? Or does it even matter?

    Hydrous Body Butter

    When experimenting with new ingredients...

    I always run into the same dilema when I am going to use a new ingredient. When I want to see how a new oil performs how is the best way to use it in my recipe? Im not going to use 100% of anything except for castile. So using 100% has never been my thinking. Is that what I should do? Should...
