    Patchouli at .25%. I like it in Fresh Linen and Bramble Berry's Karma clone. Tobacco with a touch of patch? sure.

    My soap is drying

    Hi Abby, welcome to the soaping community! Your soap would be drying with 30% coconut oil. It will become milder as it ages, > 12 months. Either use a higher Superfat or lower CO %. Try this 15% Coconut Oil 15% Palm oil 70% Olive oil 4% SF

    Dog Soap

    I sell Doggie soap, basic lard bar 8% SF, scented with Citronella and Cedarwood. PH of dog's skin is irrelevant. I recommend only bathe the pupper once a month. Many customers comment on how much better bar soap than commercial dog shampoo which doesn't rinse out.

    Oh no! Could I be allergic to goat's milk?

    85% EVOO 15% and 15% Coconut would be less harsh / drying on the skin. The other details are minor.

    Conditioning Bath Soap - does this look okay?

    Soap is meant to cleanse, well-made hand-crafted soap cleanses gently. If still drying use skin-softening lotions. Suggestion: Coconut 20% EVOO 80% SF 6%

    Recipes with no liquid oils?

    Had great luck with a 65% lard soleseife. The "rub" with with lard it's hard to get a good lather. Up the Coconut oil and add Castor will provide some bubbles. Increase the SF to minimize the CO harshness along with the benefits of the Soleseife technique.
