    Can you help me name this?

    Hi, I'm drawing a blank on what to name my soap. It is a blend of Bergamot & Mandarin and Green Tea. It will be natural color with green tea leaves in the soap. It's definitely "spa" like with notes of citrus and astringent. I wouldn't say it's relaxing. More like invigorating. Any...

    Is it possible to create a "like" button on SMF?

    Hi! I guess this is directed at the administrators or moderators. Is it possible to create a "like" button for SMF. I love it on FB. Sometimes I want to let someone know that I like their soap pix but do want all of the emails of other comments. I don't want to eliminate emails because it...

    Pomegranate Chunk soap. I originally made this the dark color but it was way too dark so I cut it up and put it in a batch of uncolored soap. By opalgirl at 2011-09-16 Japanese Pear and Ginseng - too much Lemon Lab color and it overheated so it was a bit crumbly ~ a nice soap to use...

    I need a scent suggestion

    I'm making a carrot and coconut milk bar and have no idea what to scent it with. I already have a coconut scent in my line. I will be using pureed carrots for the color. I'm thinking something light and that could be year round. Thanks! Opalgirl

    Goat's Milk vs vegan soap

    I have used Goat's milk soap but I make vegan soap. Personally I can't tell the difference ~ they're both good. (guess I just like my recipe LOL) Anyway, are there oils that impart the same properties as goat's milk? If someone wanted a vegan bar but had the same qualities as a GM bar what...

    This is a new problem for me

    So I made this awesome dead sea mud bar with all kinds of expensive oils and "good for ya" stuff. I thought it would look cool plus add some exfoliation if I added some medium coarse dead sea salt on top. Just checked the bars and they are somewhat wet where the salt crystals are imbedded. No...
