    Natural colorants to use

    I think you could get pretty close on the 3rd one with madder root -- maybe mixed with a little Moroccan red clay.

    Why so many products that do the same thing?

    That's what I was thinking. Or possibly they could make multiple products that they blend together in the end.

    How can this be correct?

    It's probably something like this. This recipe would have a short shelf life. It would have risk of microbial growth, separation and rancidity. Might be fun to try with an added preservative.

    No need to be sorry *hugs*. I'm about to do another kitchen cleaning party! I'll probably have another one tonight after my adventures. :mrgreen:

    I'd be the one to blame for no gear. They are my own dishes from making too much soap and food for my family.

    I feel like my life has turned into doing dishes. That was my first official job, dishwasher at an Italian restaurant. It's gone full circle...

    How is soaperschoice organic olive oil?

    I'm looking for high quality organic olive oil. The last organic olive oil I bought was disappointing from another supplier. I'm looking for a robust high grade olive oil. The California Ranch brand is spectacular, but they don't offer organic yet. Kirkland brand is nice and I might go with...

    Bulk apothecary has it at a decent price.

    Store dry lye in THIS container?

    What about dry climates? Susie brings up good points. I keep my lye in the plastic containers they come in. If those containers leak air they will suck up the moisture and ruin in time.

    Store dry lye in THIS container? 5PP (#5) is good for lye -- so yes.

    Anyone else make sauerkraut?

    I love fermenting! Sauerkraut, pickles and salsa are my favorites. Don't know if this will help. Here are a couple write-ups I did a while back. Sauerkraut Pickles

    Confused by labeling practices I have seen

    Exfoliate is a cosmetic claim not drug. If you label according to cosmetic standards you can claim exfoliation. Once I found this out I had to change all of my labels to the cosmetic standard. But doing so is nice, you can use a lot more wording to explain your product without fear of...

    You could bathe in it. If you have an abundance with the de-wormed milk, goat milk...

    Natural Fragrance ideas, help please :)

    Those are nice looking, great job! I love the natural look to it, it looks like homemade strawberry ice cream.

    Kombucha Soap

    A SCOBY is a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast not a mushroom. I hope the clarification doesn't offend, I love ferments and mushrooms -- it's a slight obsession of mine. I've been thinking about making kombucha soap for a while bust still haven't. I was thinking of going with water...

    How to label "FO" when wanting "natural" advertising

    I also think it's wrong on a personal level. Until legislation happens you should be fine legally (I'm not a lawyer either). There are some lawsuits in the works that might change all this in the future. It's a difficult subject with a lot to consider. I'd like to see a 3rd party...
