    Sulphur in potassium soap, is it possible?

    That was a good read. Only one thing. You mention on your web page "You may want to sift sulfur powder to remove coarse particles before adding it to soap." ummm ... you might want to reconsider recommending that! I use the Sublimed sulfur (aka flowers of sulfur) in a personal product for our...

    Hand Sanitizer

    I just don't understand why people who are AT HOME (not when you're out and about, obviously) are hung up on unsing hand sanitizer. Use the soap! Even the CDC has said that soap and water work better than hand sanitizer.

    Post your Gripe

    That's so interesting. I've read before about various blood types and susceptibility to some of the major diseases, but hadn't heard it's relation to norovirus. DH (O-) is quite susceptible to it ... when he gets it, he gets it BAD. Our first son who got married, a friend of his brought their...

    Best concentrated essential oils for HP that lasting fragrance

    OK ... just wanted to see if you were adding the EO before the cook. I talked with someone this summer who thought it was strange that I added them AFTER the cook. I mix my EOs with my superfat oil(s) and it's the last thing that goes in. After my bars are cut, I set them out to 'dry' on wire...

    Best concentrated essential oils for HP that lasting fragrance

    I've used EOs exclusively in my HP soaps since I started soaping 10 yrs ago. (I only started using some FOs this fall because there's just some scents you can't get with the EOs.) When do you add the EO? How do you store your soap? I use .5 oz PPO on average, with some EOs needing more, and...

    Lumpy Oat milk lye solution

    I hate working with that glumpy mess, so I just make a really strong oat milk, dissolve my lye in half the water I'll need, then just after adding the lye water to the oils as normal, I add the oat milk (the other half of the water content) and continue as normal. Oh - and I never wash my oats...

    Can I get some opinions on my EO blends?

    Ditto on the Litsea. It sticks and sticks and when I use it in blends with NO citrus at all people always say they smell lemon. :) The reason you may like the smell of cassia better is that, in the U.S., our 'cinnamon' is actually cassia, so you might be more familiar with that scent. Not all...

    Alternative natural extract for skin lightening

    Absolutely. Using a soap with those type of ingredients would be relatively useless, as it just gets rinsed off. They would have to be in a cream. Even then, if you're targeting age spots, you'd only want to cover the actual spots. Think about it ... if it's meant to lighten skin, the product...

    For my Angel Nieces

    Thank you so much for sharing your labor of love! It brought tears to my eyes. My granddaughter Nevaeh Destiny (her name was chosen months before) was unexpectedly stillborn in Sept '17 ... a scant 3 months after loosing a DIL to a brain aneurysm. Life goes on, wounds heal, but they DO take a...
