    FO vs. EO

    There seem to be two opinions on the subject... EOs are concentrated essentials and, therefore, stronger than FOs. or FOs are synthetic and can therefore be made concentrate and stronger than EOs. Or is this one of those "it depends on which scent" situations? ~Lori

    Over gelled?

    I posted the symptoms of my latest batch of soap and one suggestion was it may have over gelled. I haven't had much luck finding any information on that particular topic. Can someone tell me what actually happens in an over gel and what the results are or can be? TIA! ~Lori

    How hot does a batch of CP soap get?
