    Nutrioli Pure Soybean Oil?

    I just found this "Nutrioli Pure Soybean Oil" at Walmart, but it's ingredients says: "Soybean Oil, Tbhq (Antioxidant)". I'm guessing Tbhq is probably something we want to stay away from?? When I googled it, it said it was used as a preservative. Anyone else know anything about tbhq, or has...

    Peppermint EO *literally* sticking

    Sesame Oil vs. Toasted Sesame Oil for lotion

    Hi there! I just made a great lotion recipe that used a small amount (2oz) of sesame oil. I used some from WSP and I love how the recipe turned out! Unfortunately I only ordered 2oz (why??!!) and now I'd like to make more. Toasted sesame oil is easy to find locally, but that is darker and...

    New to the group but not to soaping :)

    Hi there! My name is Gretchen B and I've been soaping since 1998 (with a 6 year hiatus when I had little ones in the 2000's)! I absolutely love it!!! I make it for myself and my family, but also sell too. Not a lot, mostly enough to break even. :) I have made mostly CP soap, but also just...
