    Sticky M&P soap???

    Really? Wow, see, the problem is that with 1-2 tsp per 1lb my soap seems to hardly smell at all and after a few weeks the smell is almost completely gone :roll: , which is why I've increased it up to 1 tsp per 4 oz. Oh and my last batches that I've made just recently and let air out for an...

    Whipped Shea body butter?

    Thanks for letting me know what it is! Hey, I have a big bag of Dry Flo here from when I tried making body powders, cool! I'll have to try using that the next batch of my whipped Shea! (which after re-doing it again is still a bit too hard... :? Any ideas what the culprit is? Whipped for too...

    mp salt bars

    If it turned out good, let us know (if you don't mind?) how the recipe was? I've only heard of salt bars but never known that one could actually make them with MP soaps as well... :oops:

    Whipped Shea body butter?

    Hazel, thanks again for all your valuable input! I totally appreciate that!!! It's hard to believe that I really seemed to have forgotten almost everything from ~2 yrs ago and in our move of course my folder with all my recipes etc. went missing! :cry: When I opened the Shea butter, it...

    Whipped Shea body butter?

    Thanks again, Hazel! I just whipped some shea! :wink: I only had exactly 4 oz left and wasn't actually sure if it's still good, being 1,5 yrs old :lol: but there was no mold or anything on and it was always stored in a cool place so I think it's good. (I'll use it only for myself anyway right...

    Whipped Shea body butter?

    Thank you for your input, Hazel! :D I will play around with it then. Since I'm in the country of olive oil, I have wonderful oil bought directly off the farmers (talk about organic & virgin oil!). I'll let you know how it worked! Happy New Year to you too! :wink:

    Whipped Shea body butter?

    Please help me again to remember; it's been close to 2 yrs that I've made whipped shea butter... What's the ratio of the butter and oil??? I can also use plain olive oil or canola oil, right? (Would coconut oil work too?) How much preservative? Sorry for all the questions, I really forgot a...

    I'm back! ;-)

    Ciao everyone! Maybe a few of you still remember me? I was active here a bit over 1.5 yrs ago, but after we moved to Italy, too much other stuff was going on and I stopped visiting (or even making soap etc. for that matter...). Now that I'd like to pick up my hobby again, I'm back and...

    Quantity of FO for M&P?

    I know, I know, such a basic question!.. :oops: I usually only make single bars one at a time, so I know to use for ex. 1 Tbsp for an 5 oz bar... But now I have a few trays where 2 lbs of soap fit.. and honestly, I'm a bit lazy sitting here doing the math from my 5 oz bar to 2 lbs, so could...

    Linen/room spray question

    Aha, gotcha! ;) Well, I just got some 2oz spray bottles off WSP that are clear I think.. so I guess it's good if that FO modifier is claiming to be/stay clear ;) Now ppl only need to start BUYING my stuff!!! :lol:

    Linen/room spray question

    Ok, thanks, Tab! :) As to what it is: Here's what WSP says : Fragrance Oil modifier is a proprietary emulsifying agent that allows oil to dissolve with water. When used correctly, your end product will remain 100% clear. I thought I might need it/try it out... Even though so far it hasn't...

    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. I bought 2 oz spray bottles and WSP gives a ratio as follows : 4 parts Modifier to 1...
