    First Market

    Great job! :nodding: Very efficient use of your table space too! I need to study your layout…I do a market and I think 8 spread out too much.

    Donating Soap

    I have a bag of soaps I also intended to donate, but started to get in my own head about having to list ingredients… it would be a lot of work to do so if I had to do that. Is that required for donations?

    Calling all lardinators! Why do you love lard-based soaps? 🐖

    Hi All, I like using lard as well, but find that my soaps develop a white coating... Doesn't seem to be soda ash, and It is almost moist feeling. I have not gone over 50% lard in any recipe to date, and my norm is around 40%. Have you experienced this?

    Alcohol spray after unmolding?

    Thanks All! I have not had particular success spraying with alcohol after molding, so always looking for ideas... I think its my environment. I live In Maryland (DC area) and it tends to be humid, especially upstairs of my house where I soap.

    Alcohol spray after unmolding?

    Hi All, I recently heard a soaper say that she sprays her CP soap with alcohol after unmolding...Have you heard of that before? Does that work? I know I can try it, but as usual, I know I can get info from my soap family. Thank you!

    Oatmeal in lotion or not?

    Hi All, I am trying to finalize if its OK to add a bit of colloidal oatmeal to lotion or not. I see the opinions go back and forth (even outside of this forum). I understand the preservation issue, but then I see discussions about what kind of oatmeal to add... Is OK to add it in a well...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    Not exactly today… but within a few days 😊 Aren’t cats the best? I have a dog too, but there’s a special something about cats… I just tried orange patchouli in my turmeric honey soap and really like it! I started with NG orange patchouli, but it seemed pretty mild so I added BS orange blossom...

    Fall soaps

    Thank you so much! On top it is sea salt with glitter. I hope others respond because I like how this soap looks and would hate for it to be no good as a soap… that’s the whole point isn’t it, to make usable soap? 🤦🏾‍♀️

    Fall soaps

    I wanted to share my latest soaps with you guys… Btw…question… I accidentally poured in a lot more castor oil than in my recipe. So far it’s not sticky, but would there be any other issues that may come up? I hope the soap is not ruined… it’s the Halloween colored one in the picture.

    Cannabis / Marijuana fragrance oils?

    This oil is ABSOLUTELY a dead ringer for cannabis…so much so that I made a hemp soap and while curing my soap room smelled like I was lighting up!😂 “Mary Jane” from New York scent.

    Opaque layer on my liquid soap

    I don’t think mine is foam… I think it is unsaponified oils. My super fat was kind of high and I did not account for the CA.

    Favorite WSP fragrances?

    I love so many…have good success with cannabis santal though for a more “masculine “ scent…I mix it with patchouli for my earthy soaps.
