    Halp! Cancer Patient Skin Cream

    I love this story. My heart just breaks when my friend and I get to talking. I know that burden she’s carrying is heavy, and what you did for that woman was nothing short of miraculous. Thank you for sharing that story 🥹

    Halp! Cancer Patient Skin Cream

    What a lovely gesture—thank you so much. I think that would make her very happy. I’m not sure how to send private messages, but if I can figure it out I’ll give you her address. And you have to let me send you some soap as well!

    Fragrance Sale Item 60% reduced

    The shipping just kills me, though. $20.20 for one item seems like an awful lot

    Basti's Adventures in Soap (2023)

    I love these! I have NO IDEA how you are able to make such beautiful soaps with M&P. Mine always look like melted shame when I try to get fancy with it lol

    January 2023 SMF Challenge – Pick a Color, Any Color

    Omg.. I thought it was just me! I’m learning a LOT with this months challenge… not all of it good lol. Tbh… I love my micas too much, but this would be great for a few friends with extremely sensitive skin, so.. I’m giving it a go!

    Great price on oils

    Not sure if anyone would be interested, but I use a restaurant supplier for oils and some fats/butters. shipping is high, so I wait until I have a big order. After doing the math it works out to be cheaper than Amazon. Today they had a gallon of soybean/OO mix for $12.99 and 12lbs of CO for $33...

    Let’s Talk Soap Dough

    Ok, so I’ve searched the forum but haven’t found the answers I’m looking for. 1. Does soap dough stay pliable if wrapped in Saran Wrap, say if you wanted to make a large batch to use later, or do you have to make it batch by batch? 2. Does anyone have videos or websites they can direct me to...

    Sugar and/or Salt to make a hard bar

    Really? I may have to try salt, then. SL can get awful expensive and I’m almost out

    January 2023 SMF Challenge – Pick a Color, Any Color

    I love this! I’m always afraid to use the browns, but this is making me change my mind. How did you get that little “splash” on the bar on the right? I’ve never seen that

    January 2023 SMF Challenge – Pick a Color, Any Color

    Lol… thank you for saying that. Meh, I’ll get it right someday. I do love what some others were able to do with their dustpan, so I think I will try it again. It was fun!

    January 2023 SMF Challenge – Pick a Color, Any Color

    Ugh… it really didn’t turn out the way I envisioned it in my head. Pouring from a dustpan is a whole lot harder than it sounded. But, like you, I was way too scared to try for a long time so this was such a stretch for me… but I guess a part of that is “showing off” my ugly soaps, too. Lol

    January 2023 SMF Challenge – Pick a Color, Any Color

    Omg Omg! really? Thank you! Well, I’m sure there’s a name for the way I did it - but I wanted all the layers to have drops in them, so I poured a base layer of the hue, then poured the other 3 layers in straight lines down the mold and then poured another base layer, etc etc until i ran out of...
