    This is addicting

    Hello and welcome to the forum. I know exactly what you mean about soapmaking being addictive, lol! I still get as much fun out of making soap now as I did when I started. My husband adores the shaving soap you mentioned. He's not too keen on me making changes to it but I might just quietly...

    Soap Demonstration at a Winter Farm Show - tips needed

    As Relle said. I did something similar, albeit on a smaller scale, for my friend's Hen day, prior to her wedding. She wanted a crafting day but left the arrangements to us. 4 of us presented their indidual crafts and everyone then had a chance to make something. I only gave a soap...

    I made my own lemony pine essential oil

    Wow, that looks like great fun. I would definitely love to try something like that with English lavender one day and use it in my creams.

    Soap false trace/seize BEFORE adding FO?

    And with reducing castor I take it just add the extra to the CO? @earlene I use pure OO IMHO I would add more to other oils rather than CO. I find CO is great for bubbles but can be a little drying, depending on your recipe. However everyone's skin is different and this may be great for you...
