    Sweet Orange (Finally!)

    I like it! I really like the Goji Tarroco Orange from Candles and Supplies. The dry down is better than from my original supplier. That one has a boiled orange weird smell in liquid soap. Plus its much cheaper too!

    Fragrance Sale Item 60% reduced

    Thanks for this! What’s the longevity in bath bombs? I have never bought anything from the mbecause I had read reviews that their FOs are heavily diluted and subpar. Great to read another perspective on FNWL.

    Palm Oil Substitute

    I am going to be the odd one out and say do a test batch with lard. It smells like old oil and wonky after a few months to me. I have had much better results with Shea. Downside is you need extra weeks of cure time if you use past a certain percentage in your recipe but it’s worth it. ETA...

    How do Canadian soap makers stay in business?

    I am quite sure the Water Orchid FO you want to buy from Candora is from Wholesale Supplies Plus. Why not buy directly from WSP?

    EOs in water

    I would include a preservative just to be safe.

    How do Canadian soap makers stay in business?

    We grin and bear it.. I sell only to friends and family so they pay the price I set for my products. They know they can't get the same quality anywhere else, tailored to their skin, taste and fragrance. I found that I had to sell to keep my hobby going or I would beggared myself.

    ISO usage rate, Gemlite Oak Moss

    The Oakmoss from Gemlite is heavily diluted. I would suggest you reach out to them to ask with what and at what concentration as that will inform the percentage you can use in soap.

    Something similar to BB Spiced Red Tea

    I love that FO too. I am hoarding my 16oz bottle. I think the closest I have smelled is Raw cinnamon and Clove from Makesy. Not B & B safe though

    Scent Memory Vs. 1617 Vs. Makesy

    I got some samples from Scent Memory so I am able to answer this question now. For me, here is how I rank these FO suppliers. 1. Makesy - WoodenWick - The best!
