    Calendula infused olive oil & ylang ylang

    Calendula, to be honest, I have only used once and that was infused in oil for soap. I loved that soap so I think its worth a shot to try. As for ylang ylang, I can't say I remember being fond of it.

    Is this recipe okay?

    I never use grapeseed oil due to the shelf life- it's short. If you want to use the grapeseed oil, go ahead but keep that usage down but keep a bar to observe for DOS. You can also allocate that oil's percentage to the olive oil if you want. I do have one question- why are you making such a big...

    Macaron lotion bars (third time’s the charm!)

    That's so evil. I want a macaron now. They look scrumptious.

    EO vs FO: Thoughts???

    No offense but the best thing for sensitive skins is not to assume that case is the same. My daughter has very sensitive skin and I would not use EOs for her as they actually irritated her skin. I also won't use FOs with her unless neither of us have a reaction of any kind. I also point out that...

    Burnt oils

    Perhaps too, you should consider a smaller batch of soap like 500g, if you're a newer soaper? 1500g is a lot.

    Attention Patchouli Lovers

    Camden Grey is fantastic, especially for us on the East Coast but they have a minimum order amount of $50. If @Jersey Girl is still in NJ, she's likely be paying closer to $80 for that EO.

    Cocoa Butter - too much in this recipe?

    You need to actually post your recipe, especially if your link is private. Since we posted at the same time, I use 25% cocoa butter. You're fine.

    Cp+melt and pour in one batch?

    Mind providing a link for the product? I've seen people use CP and M&P together and a crumbly base is a little suspect in my head.

    Cp+melt and pour in one batch?

    Where are you getting your M&P? It might be helpful to know.

    This is not soap - syndet bar

    Oh, my bad then. In any case, I'm glad you posted the link. I sometimes can never find my bookmark.

    @earlene That's a subscriber exclusive article. I can't see it.

    Difference in olive oil

    Go with it, espceially if it saves you some coin. With the exception of pomace, it really doesn't matter.

    Trial by fire: I can't make it work!

    Do you have a pic of the soap, @lenarenee ?

    Whipped soap

    It would surprised you. You could give it a shot to find out.

    Weird soap

    Maybe give it the week and see later? These things do happen.

    Stick blender vs whisk/spoon/spatula

    Averages are just estimates and are sometimes wrong but I'm also less apt to using lemon in a soap. I prefer not having variables that are not consistent. Going back to your first post, A stick blender's blade moves a lot faster than you can with a whisk. You would need to mix with a whisk for...
