    Mold on Soap

    Oh, no! I thought Calendula was one of the few good guys! I have a batch with calendula petals. Sigh. Another question. I’ve been eye balling the Rose soap kit from Brableberry. It includes pink rose buds for the top. Won’t they mold and turn black as well?

    Lemon Slice in Soap?

    Orange spots in melt and pour soap?

    I finished a pretty simple batch of melt and pour soap and have noticed small orange spots developing in it. I wouldn’t have thought this would be an issue with melt and pour, since the soap Was new, although I did use essential oils- lavender and lemon. How can I stop this from happening? Tia
