    How to use F.O. in CP soaps and a slow tracing recipe

    Thank you Judymoody. I appreciate your comments. I believe it is the F.O. as well. I am doing my best to only use E.O.s but sometimes customers ask for certain scents that are simply not available and that's where F.O.s come in. I do know that coconut milk will not give me any scent...but it...

    Inspiration

    I have been getting my inspiration from drinks...like caipirinha, mojito, purple haze...etc. I made the caipirinha soap about a month ago. I could not find dried lime slices and so I decided to add dried orange slices for that pop of color and it still worked. :P
