    Need Help Finding Box Supplier

    I buy a lot of boxes of shipping products from uline you may want to take a look there. If you don't need that many you may want to just look for plastic boxes at a big box store with lids so you can seal them once they are cured, they stack nicely so they can be stored out of the way.

    Bad customer service

    Nature’s Garden is one of my favorite companies to buy from. I have had their customer service go above and beyond when I have forgotten to add all the ingredients I needed on an order I needed ASAP. Unless I know I like the FO (or have read tons of reviews both on their website and off) I...

    I’m from central IL not northern IL. My hubby is an SIU grad does that make it a little better?

    Marketing "Pure" Soap

    I have seen that. Our Rural King also has bars of small brightly colored unwrapped soap. I'll try to remember to take a picture when I'm there next.

    Hubby Wants Menthol Soap

    I made a balm that my hubby and I put on our faces before we go to bed using about 1.5% (on this last batch) but it isn't enough for us. I did just make a cold process batch of spa soap that I used 1/2 an ounce of menthol crystals (dissolved in olive oil) with Eucalyptus EO and Tea Tree EO. I...

    What soapy mistake have you made today?

    I have had a week!!!! I left my coconut oil and shea butter out of a 5 pound batch of soap (it was in the crock pot melting and I completely forgot about it) did notice until the next day when I was getting ready to make another batch and went to melt more. But that time everything had been...

    Metaphysical Soap?

    Okay here are the soaps. It didn't go completely to plan, but when does it ever? I am really happy with how this turned out. The first row is the Element Series. Water (scented with Eucalyptus and Peppermint), Fire (scented with Orange Clove), Earth (scented with Bamboo Hemp), and Air...

    Nerdgirl fan soaps

    I will throw out a guess and say the blue rose is a Doctor Who soap? I’m sure I’m way off but that is the only thing I could think of.

    Maple Water?

    Very cool. You will have to let us know how it affected the soap. I would think the sugar from the maple water would give you lots of bubbles.

    Metaphysical Soap?

    Those are very nice. I could be wrong but I am getting the impression that this is just a seasonal display for her. Which of course could change if they sell really well. She wants soaps for this but also soaps, wax tarts, and room sprays for the regular part of the store.

    I think I'm pretty happy with how it turned out

    Very pretty and professional looking!

    ENORMOUS mold

    Awesome. You could ask if you could take pictures of the store for the forum let her know there were a lot of her fans talking about her, lol. I talk big but I wouldn’t do that either. I love watching soaping youtube videos but I am always curious about how the finished product turns out.

    Split Method w/Beer Soaps

    Its… fun. Really gets your heart racing. But then again I’m lazy and use wine straight out of the bottle and risk it. I know I shouldn’t. This way seems like it would take a lot of the stress out of using alcohol in soap.

    Photos Skillz, Part One

    That stinks. You should be able to see the winners when she posts them on the blog. There has been a ton of wonderful pictures posted each day with different ideas (both for photo taking and for actually making soap).
