    Made my 1st soap!!!

    Woo hoo! I'm glad you had fun- even if things got a little crazy. Same thing happened on my first batch- used a scent that accelerated! I glopped it in and it turned out fine. In fact, I love it! Great job on getting started!

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    I cut my Crisp Cotton soap that I made yesterday. Smells awesome and looks ok. My blue mica turned gray, but that will only bother me. Then I made a batch of ombre sandalwood soap. Can't wait to cut it and see how it went. I haven't been around long enough to be in the challenge but I had never...

    How much to cut the base?? How can you know?

    I have used the water weighing method above, but I still don't come out exact. If I really only wanted to scent and color the EXACT right amount of base, I think I would use the water method to get an approximate amount, then melt that much base and pour it and let it cool, then measure what I...

    A Frenchy in Idaho : Hi Everyone ! :)

    I live in Utah. I haven't been able to find lye anywhere local so I've been buying it from Amazon. Pretty sure that I am now on the FBI's watch list due to my Amazon orders!

    New Addict from Utah

    Hey everybody! I live in Utah. I've been making soap and other products for a few months and it has become a passion. I'm one of those crazies who studies things for a while, but once I start actually DOING it I go full speed ahead. I've made a bunch of batches of soap with varying degrees of...

    Good patchouli fragrance oil

    I'm pretty new to this but I bought some patchouli EO and it is super strong. Maybe I'm just paranoid about using too much and having my soap smell like old hippies and the soap I used it in has not fully cured yet so I'm not sure if it will stick or not. I haven't seen a "pure" FO in my...

    Problem with shrink wrap bands

    I have been using 4x6 bags and it has been hard to get the soap into them. I usually get them about halfway in and then hold the bag down against the counter while pushing the soap in. Last week I bought a shrink wrap system and I think that is going to work better. . . once I get the hang of...

    How do you organize your stuff?

    I'm lucky to have a great space in my laundry room. I keep molds and M/P in tubs in the closet and other ingredients on the shelves in that same closet and in the cabinets under the counter. I bought a cute shelving unit at Hobby Lobby that holds up to 8 oz bottles of EO's and FO's and gets...
