    Oops left out a oil

    Phew 7% is so little and in this case I will let it cure longer then usual. I’m still trying to understand super fat etc. I hate rebatching it’s messy and the last time I did this I put it in a food processor and mixed it with soda for laundry.

    Anyone know of any good wholesale supplier for essential oils?

    My last order from New directions was in aluminum. Maybe we should keep our dark bottles in the future.? Our world is changing every day.

    Ricing! What's the worst that can happen?

    I started using FO as its cost effective and have been making soap for 20 years, now I know what this. Never have I had this problem with EO. I usually make at 4.5lb and now I scale it down to 3lb and make sure I blend blend blend at a lower temp. My FO also made my salt soap turn yellow.
