    You don't have to stop using palm though there are a lot of suppliers out there like columbus that get it from renewable sources where they are not hurting the environment and the animals :) I'm not into animal oils at all to me that does gross me out, but I tried using lard once and I won't do...

    What to use to line wooden mold?

    I love the craft foam too I tried to use freezer paper, but went back to the foam :) When I first started out I used plastic grocery bags, but you have to keep it nice and smooth or you will have wrinkles in your soap.

    How important is distilled water?

    Depends on what is in your water. I get terrible ash if I use even filtered tap water so I stick with distilled.
