    Recipe questions

    Thank you all for your questions and answers, so helpful! I used a tea scented fragrance oil in a recent soap and what a nice shower experience that made...I am wondering what a soap made with French Green Clay and tea scent would be like?😍

    Soap cutter

    I bought a Bud cutter! It came last week, very fast shipping and great packaging. I am in awe of this machine. Have only used it once but it is a game changer for me. Highly recommend!

    First attempt at CP possible fail

    i really enjoyed reading this soap adventure story! And when you described being a go-getter, I wanted to jump up and make a batch of soap, too. Very inspirational 😍.

    I used it for the first time and it is AWESOME! Worth every penny! Does this make me a “real” soaper?🤔 OMG...mine was not nearly that$$$....just a single bar cutter.

    I made another batch of beer soap, this time with enough batter to actually make a tall skinny bar. Also ordered a BudCutter and it came today! Hoping to make my soaps look a little better.

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    I cut my Guinness soap, first time to add anything to basic soap recipe, I think it turned out good! The fragrance is Brambleberry Oatmeal Stout. It is supposed to discolor to brown, but I added a tsp. of extra dark cocoa to be sure. I washed my hands with a scrap piece and it is very bubbly...

    Made a Guinness soap today. Used Brambleberry Oatmeal Stout fragrance. I’m not sure but it is possible I did NOT screw up and this doesn’t happen every day.

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    I tried to make a lace top soap with an impression mat. It was going pretty well until the end, when I saw that I left out the fragrance. But it’s a perfect excuse to try again, right?

    Trying Marbling Swirl technique

    This technique is from a YouTube video by TreeMarie Soapworks. It is the most challenging soap I have tried. This lady is such a good teacher. She gave a lesson on how to formulate a recipe that will be slow enough to work with and I found it so helpful! I don’t own a slab mold so trying to...

    Coronavirus

    I am just getting over feeling sick and having a bad, dry cough x 6 days. Only had a trace of temp 99*. I live in Louisiana in a small rural community. Testing is limited to those who have high fevers and severe symptoms. I guess am lucky to be getting over it so easy. Am so ready to get back...

    I cut my floral hanger swirl batch. It did gel and with the glycerin rivers has a watercolor look to it! But I am going to need a wire soap cutter. The second hand box/ blade I have is not so good.

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    Being so new to soap making, it doesn’t take much success to push me into giddy happiness! I made a soap like this a few weeks ago. It was the best out of my 12 batches and I have given all but 2 bars away. Decided to try to duplicate it. Not at all sure if I could do it. I changed the recipe a...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    I have bought Afternoon Tea before, and really liked it! I think it would be good for men, too. I am new to soap making so am trying about 3 new scents each month. I wish I could find just one perfect all purpose scent, but so far that has not happened.
