    How long have you been making soap?

    I am in my 11th year and still enjoy it as much as ever. Jean

    Need help in a hurry!!

    Thank you. I had to go ahead and do something before I had a reply on this, and that is what I did. It turned out very nice. Actually, I did not know that red and green made brown. I always used a brown liquid dye in the past, but I think I like mixing my own now that it turned out so well...

    Need help in a hurry!!

    Just poured up Cinnamon Toast container candles. I always mix my own colors using Candlewic Liquid Dyes. I must have made the wrong notes the last time I made these because my "Cinnamon" color is mauve and a dark one at that. Here is what I used: I want a nice cinnamon color. 2 drops blue...

    Source for Palm Oil

    I am looking for a source to purchase small amounts of palm oil. I have looked at Wal Mart and my grocery store, but have not seen any. Where do you all get yours when you are only needing small amounts. Thanks Jean

    My first GM soap. I am so proud!

    I'm from Missouri, so I have to be shown. Did you just put the mold itself in the freezer for two hours, just to get it icy cold, or did you put it in the freezer after pouring the batter into it? This probably sounds dumb to some of you, but I always make things harder than it actually is. Jean

    Natures Garden

    I was just browsing and saw this thread. I could not help but put in my two cents worth, although I know this thread started some time ago. I have used Nature's Garden exclusively for eight years and have never gotten anything that I didn't like. There customer service is exceptional, and...

    My first soap using salt

    Forgot to ask Paul, why did I have to wait 36 hours before I could unmold my soap? Because I have heard you say before that you unmold really quick. BTW, I used a TOG slab mold also, with dividers. Notice my water amount. Could this be why? Jean

    My first soap using salt

    I don't know if you would call this a salt bar or not, but I was wanting to run the recipe past you to see if it sounds okay. I sort of made it up, using what I had on hand. This is a RTCP Soap made on July 19 23 % Soybean Oil (liquid Vegetable Oil in a jug) Coconut Oil 38% (76 Deg...

    Substitute for Lard

    Paul, I'll be anxious to hear or see how yours turns out, it sounds really nice. I don't think I colored my green layer dark enough, which is the top layer, because right now the hearts which are done in white aren't showing up very good. I am hoping the color will get a tad bit darker as it...

    Substitute for Lard

    Thanks to all of you. I didn't have any shea either, so I upped my olive oil and added 4 oz. of cocoa butter. It is in the mold and looking good. I tried the "hearts' again, and they did okay this time.

    Substitute for Lard

    Okay, I was afraid you were going to say that. So guess I'd better put things on hold until I get this figured out. I do have some cocoa butter so I will check it out while I am at it. Thanks so much! Jean

    Substitute for Lard

    Okay, I do have RBO so I will just add what I need to the 7.25 oz. of lard to make a total of 11.04 oz. or do I need to not use the lard at all and use 11.04 oz. of RBO? Thanks, Jean
