    What Do You Like About Salt Bars?

    I am curious. Has anyone tried making a salt bar with goats milk? Reading these posts have inspired me. With the results of what both does for the skin I was wondering about combining them. Any input or ideas on this?

    My first black colored soap

    Your soaps are stunning. I love, love them. I wish I could smell the black cherry fragrance. I think even the fragrance name suits the soap. I would change nothing. Perfect as it is IMHO.:thumbs::winner:

    help now - spilled essential oil!

    Please try Benzine. I have used it on all electronics and it cleans sticky mess and grease off. Also it evaporates quickly and does not leave a film on the surface nor does it remove any writing. Please try it and let us know.

    Aloe Vera gel - Feedback welcome

    I am still considering masterbatching my lye and I make soap with aloe gel often. I grow my own so after scraping the gel out of the leaves I liquidise the pulp so that there are no lumps. I have used it as full water content and also mixed it with cucumber juice, using it half and half. It does...

    November Monthly Challenge: December Inspiration

    I would like to join but do not have enough message points. In South Africa it is extremely hot and lately humid as well. My idea would be balls of white soap with pale green swirls on a rope to hang on the Christmas tree. Fragranced with Eucalyptus and Mint will have a cooling effect to counter...

    Colorant ideas from the market

    Paprika turns a love peachy colour as well, parsley ground into a powder also colours green. I also use comfrey leaves dried and crushed and it gives me a green soap as well. Marigolds, calendula petals and dandelion flowers will colour soap yellow gold. I hope this helps and that I am not...

    4th batch, face and body

    If you are thinking about rebatching no need to wait. I have rebatched a few the moment I notice that I am not happy with something. (scale problems) I normally add a bit of liquid or oils in the grated soap and reheat until fully melted then pour into mould. I use the crockpot as well for...

    4th batch, face and body

    Dawni don't get disheartened. Please try again. Your soap in the crock pot looks dry around the sides. Please try and rebatch the soap in the pictures. I am sure you will be delighted at the result. Rebatching resolves a lot of little errors in soapmaking. I am sure you will find a link on this...

    I have a few issues...

    Another way to harden your bars is by using Beeswax or Stearic Acid. But then run your recipe through the calculator again. This is just another means of making a harder bar of soap.
