    My First Rebatch

    Thank you all for the nice comments - at first I was disappointed, but now that the soap is drying, I really like the look and feel of the bars. Pepperi - you were the one who inspired me to do it in the first place, seriously. I used the oven rebatch method, added 1/4 cup milk to 2...

    My First Rebatch

    I rebatched some goat's milk soap in the oven. Took about two hours on low. Scented it with lemon grass and lavender, but did not use enough so it's not very highly scented. I was little put off my the color. Looks like peanut butter or....well you know. The loaf - I used a regular box...

    Where do you buy Affordable Essential Oils????????????

    you can also try essentialoiluniversity.com or camdengrey.com (or is it camdengray.com)?? I also like to purchase some of my oils from Brambleberry - not the cheapest, but it is convenient when I order. You may also try fragranceandflavors.com - it is a division of wholesale supplies plus.

    Egyptian Musk

    Does anyone know of a good place to purchase this scent? I've tried the scent from thesage.com, but the scent isn't as strong as I'd like. Thanks

    Wow, you can go with almost anything you like! I use a mix of avocado and fractionated coconut oil, 1:1. Nice and smooth w/out being too greasy.

    How many fragrances...

    I had to really reign myself in when I did my open house. I only had four women -type scents and 2 men scents. My brain could not handle much more than that. I am adding one more scent this time around, so it will be 5 women and maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaybe 3 men scents.

    what a MESS!

    I don't think the "poor man's copyright" can really protect names/other stuff. Check out this from snopes.com http://www.snopes.com/legal/postmark.asp It also gives a link to the US copyright office in the body. Hope this helps. I did register my business name, but I did not...

    Beeswax..Clean up after!

    I use a pyrex glass cup to make lotion bars, I try to wipe it out with a bunch of paper towels as soon as I am done and just keep wiping it until it's as clean as possible. Then I take hot water and a bit of soap dish detergent and scrub the cup with a paper towel on the end of a wooden spoon...

    Solid Scrubs

    I do and I don't. I wish it were a little harder, but I don't really want to mess with beeswax right at this moment. Also, I got the idea from this bar http://www.jane-inc.com/Details.cfm?Pro ... category=1, which does not indicate there is any beeswax used. If I change anything, I will up...

    ISO a really yummy strawberry fragrance

    You might also try MMS (thesage.com). I have their strawberry flavor oil and it's pretty nice. I would suspect their fragrance oil would be the same.

    Yes, soaperschoice is excellent - prices and shipping are good. When I only need a small bit of something, or want to experiment with an oil, I usually go with wholesalesuppliesplus. I've been tempted to order from oilsbynature, but...just haven't yet.

    Lotion Bar 101

    I don't know the exact proportions of my lotion bar, but I also tried the 1:1:1 mix and I felt the bar was way too waxy. What you might do is use a higher ratio of hard butters like cocoa or mango, that might give your bar firmness but still be melty on the skin.
