    Update on Muddy River Fragrance Oils

    At the beginning of June I purchased two fragrance oils from Muddy Soap Company, a new-to-me company. The fo's are Blackberry Magnolia and Birch & Black Pepper. Out of the bottle, they both smelled good to me - not simple, but sophisticated. I made a small batch of soap with each one, and am...

    How Do I Get Rid of Unused, Fairly New FO's?

    When doing my inventory at the end of 2019, I found some FO's that I do not want to keep. They are unused and still fairly new (purchased within the last year, I believe). Obviously, I opened them to smell them when they arrived. As far as I know, there's nothing wrong with them; I just don't...

    What Do You Like About Salt Bars?

    Earlier this year I read about salt bars and became intrigued. I made about 5 - 6 small batches and proceeded to wait for the cure. I realized that, while I knew that some of you (or your family members) liked them, I didn't know why. Now that I've used several, I know at least one reason why...

    Non-Oily Facial Moisturizer

    My daughter has grown up in humid Indiana, but is currently in very dry Arizona. She asked me for a recommendation for a non-oily facial moisturizer. I was away from home (and thus away from my stash of ingredients) and didn't really have the time to research anyway. Does anyone have a...

    Everything Melted!

    Everything that was supposed to, anyway. Out of half a dozen or so syndet shampoo bar batches, I could never get everything to melt completely. The SCI was generally the culprit, l believe. The final bars had unmelted bits in them. I was determined to overcome this. Perhaps those with a...

    Kiva Silicone Bag for Heating

    I had the (hopefully!) brilliant idea to use one of these to melt my notoriously unmeltable SCI for syndet shampoo bars. As I type, I have a Kiva bag in boiling water with my ingredients. Well, the SCI certainly melted more, but not completely. Perhaps if I'd left it in the boiling water...

    My First Salt Bars

    Here are my first salt bars, all of them made in mid May. From left to right: Peach, Hot Apple Cider, Layered (lavender, orange, peppermint), Spice. Because you all have been so generous with advice and cautions, I was able to tackle this new-to-me project with success from the start. I used...

    Syndet Shampoo Bar with Pine Tar?

    Just thinking out loud here . . . Some family members have ongoing issues with dry, flaky scalp skin. I'm on a mission to find/create something that will help reduce the itching and flaking. I do not know the cause of the issues, which would probably help a bit, but have been reading and...

    It's about time . . .

    . . . that I introduce myself. I live in Indiana and have been CP soaping for over 20 years. My interest began with a Country Woman magazine article about a woman who made soap. I began searching the library for books, finding very few. Nevertheless, l read what I found and started making...
