    I'm back! ;-)

    Linen/room spray question

    After having had some empty linen spray bottles that I've filled up simply with water and a few drops of my fav FO, I now bought some Fragrance Oil modifier but don't really know how much of each I have to use.

    Sticky M&P soap???

    What could be the reason for sticky soap? :? I've never encountered this problem before.. but now one of my return customers (she's more a friend who's taking some soaps off me, really lol) said that the only critique she would give me would be the stickyness factor.. :roll: Now, don't get...

    Does anyone have a great coffee scent to recommend?

    Or possibly could spare 1 oz for me? :D (I'd pay for it, of course! :lol: ) I have a person who asked me if I'd make a coffee scented soap and even though I have made some for myself in the past with real ground coffee and cocoa and it did smell like coffee, I think it might be better if I'd...

    Look what my Hubby made me today ;-)

    Since my stash of fragrances grows slow but steady and many bottles are different sizes etc., keeping them in several plastic containers was just a huge pain in the butt. So, my hubby, being the wonderful hobby guy with wood, built me a box today for all of my bottles! :wink: It's not 100%...
