    introduction from Michigan

    Welcome, Vicki! I don't know about suppliers in the Michigan area, but I want to say that I know someone who gets a 7th Day Adventist catalog from somewhere in Michigan, and she can get base oils through them. Can't be sure that it's in Michigan, but you could at least Google that.

    Question about smell...noob here.

    I would say let it cure a few weeks. In my experience, scents tend to mellow out and get just right after two or three weeks.

    Soap in high humidity weather

    Are you using a self-draining soap dish and keeping it out of the shower spray? I lived in hot and humid Florida for several years, and as long as I did those things the soap did fine. Turning on it's side helps too, so that not to much surface area is touching the dish. Hope that helps!

    I baked an artisan bread

    How beautiful! We are eagerly awaiting the first snow in MN after moving up from FL. I'm not sure if my kids are going to make it til it snows, they are so excited.

    soaping in MN

    I'm making my first batch of soap in my Minnesota home today! I laughed when I had to practically chisel my coconut oil out of its bucket. I used to just pour it when we lived in Florida. So far, everything else is working out beautifully. I used brewed coffee in place of water for today's...

    red wine soap???

    I make a soap with red wine, and I've used anywhere from 15%-50% of the water content as wine. I don't do anything to the wine. I just mix it with the water, then add the lye. If you do it this way, take care to add your sodium hydroxide VERY slowly. The solution will heat up even quicker...

    questions regarding stearic and citric acid

    Emillee, I have had this same question - regarding both the books and the stearic/citric acids. I've tried a couple of lotion recipes, and both separated after a few weeks, so I need to find some good resources for lotion-making. Topcat and Carolyn, thanks for the leads on that. Now that...

    Hi long lost friends! I am almost embarrassed to post again, it has been so long since I've logged on. We had a big year last year - my husband finished up graduate school in FL in October, and we have relocated to St. Paul, MN, where he landed a post-doctoral position at The U. of MN on the...

    Finally posting some pictures

    Those are beautiful! How do you insulate your CP soaps when you pour them in molds like that? Every time I've tried to use individual molds with CP they get super ashy. I always thought it was maybe because they didn't stay warm or something. I haven't been able to get it to work.

    Trying out some soap packaging...

    WOW! How are you able to sell your soaps for $5.00 with all that gorgeous packaging? Between boxes, labels, stickers, ribbons, and charms, PLUS the soap, I'm amazed that you can sell them at such a great price!
