    Oh and you will likely get a couple black eyes from that head bump, witch Hazel can stop those bruises too.... ask me how I know. Hoping🙏 you are ok, other than some bruise and scrapes.

    Wound care @ home

    So sorry to hear you fell. Hope you heal well. Zinc is also good for healing skin, if you happen to have some. Witch Hazel on the bruises makes them go away. If you apply it 3 or 4 times a day. If you apply it before the bruise shows up it won't show up at all. A friend got shot next to his eye...

    Dough Shears When Pressed

    I don't use sodium lactate, so have no experience with that.... but if you have dough that shears perhaps try kneading more water into a bit of it and see if it helps. The water definitely made a huge difference for mine.

    ENTRY THREAD for the March 2024 Challenge - Stone Soaps

    I'd been really wanting to try making a silicone mold and had the silicone and clay that didn't have any sulfur in it to make my shape. Fossils are so cool, as I was looking at photos of fossils Ammolites kept coming up. I went down a rabbit hole!! Ammolite is such an interesting & pretty rock/...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    If you look at soapcalc, they have both duck and Goose fats listed. Double clicking on a fat in the list will bring up the fat properties on the left side of the screen. They use almost the same amount of NaOH per pound, 0.62g or 0.02oz difference.

    Yay for broken ankles

    I second going to physical therapy can make a huge difference. My therapists have been great, giving just what I need. Every time I watch YT videos and try something different I end up in pain. Tape on the pillow, sounds like a pain. A roll of velcro may help though or an old belt. Healing...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    I wonder if you could take a clear plastic sleeve and cut a piece of paper or 2 to cover all the parts not needed. I usually end up taking an index card and moving it down the paper as I measure each oil. How wonderful you had quality time with your son making soap!

    Allergic to lye based soap?

    Maybe try make small samples of soap only using 2 types of fat and being sure to super fat to compensate for the cleansing power. I had eczema for the first time in my life last summer and fall. When as I stopped eating all corn it cleared up in a few days. You can put a straight safe oil on a...

    The Truth About Lasting Fragrance (Essential Oils)

    I have an allergy to roses and react to scented flowers. Also a bunch of allergies to trees, grasses and chemical sensitivities & sulfites. I tried a couple EOs in soap and gave up. Almost any fragrance I've been near recently has caused an ocular migraine or regular migraine, asthma and...
