    So what is.....

    thank you! I knew had something to do with surface tension and weight but couldn't get my brain right yesterday, so, everything I searched was not providing what I needed. Feel a bit stupid as the concepts are not foreign to me at all. Thank you so much. I've been filming soap reactions (&...

    What's good with Lemon-Eucalyptus?

    Off topic I know: We used to be a Vegemite house then we discovered some actual Australian owned competitors. Think Dick Smith kinda started a trend with his version years ago. But, gotta admit AussieMite and Everymite give the good ol' Vegemite and Promite/Marmite a run for their money. We...

    What's good with Lemon-Eucalyptus?

    Great way to use your lemon eucalyptus and rosemary add them both with some Orange Blossom. If you go with just orange blossom and eucalyptus add 50% of each. Or.. 35% peppermint 35% lemon eucalyptus 20% Lavender 10% Rosemary Eucalyptus must be like Vegemite? It's extremely popular down...

    So what is.....

    Ok. This is a weird question but I'm hoping someone can direct me to where to find out as my searching on Dr Google is either wonky or I'm just stupid. Use the wonky photo but it's been a day! This is liquid soap cooling down. It will become more transparent as the bubbles rise and dissipate...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    other than banksia flower & lavender, peppermint & lavender is one of the scents that everyone seems to love. if you were in Australia, I'd send you seeds. It's lovely to grow and easy to cure. Hates frost though so maybe you'd need to grow in hot house. I finally found time to cut my soap...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    hope this works. This was posted by my friend's daughter. Unfortunately, it doesn't show the whole gift. I did ask why (actually asked if she could take a photo for me) and she said, "mum already took half of it to the bathroom, this just the leftovers" 🥰😁 My only soapy adventure today was...

    Turmeric Soap Lost Color?

    @MrsZ I love Tanya's blog 😍 I'm halfway across the world but she lives how we try to live. I've made quite a few of her soaps. We grow our own vegetables (biodiverse and permaculture) and yep we have native bees, make our own bread etc etc. I know that you can test natural colours to check how...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    That's so beautiful. They must have a very close bond going through such a traumatic experience together. I'm sure they'd appreciate it.

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    I forgot to take photos of my gift basket for my best friend. I did mean too to post and for my journal (I love adding photos to my soap journal and have a portable printer just for phone photos etc). Technically it's Sunday morning so, my adventures in Soapland are from yesterday and Friday...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    While, I do melt BTMS in microwave (melting pont is just over 80 from memory) before homogenising. I would refrain from saying melt in microwave then mix. Lotions and conditioners with BTMS should be homogenised (heating both oil and water phases at keeping them between 70°c and 80°cor at least...

    My Creamy Cocoa/Shea GLS Tutorial

    You are amazing thank you. I need a new pot 🙃😉😉😅 (well that's my excuse). I know you don't do the KOH dissolving (over heat) anymore but this morning I thought I'd give this cold process liquid soap ago. I did dissolve over heat just because I (touch wood) am generally careful and I have a tall...

    Talk to me about alternatives to EOs in soap (hydrosols, oil infusions, glycerin extracts)

    We are currently collecting lavender for distillation. My daughter is doing this as part of STEM (they are looking at different distillations - oil, cold press and steam).The amount needed for 30mls oil is at around 3 kilos. The children wanted to do rose oil 😂🤣 thankfully they were talked out...

    My Creamy Cocoa/Shea GLS Tutorial

    @IrishLass I make lots of liquid soap but have always heated it. The idea of just leaving it alone is extremely appealing. Anyway, I have a question about your photos in first post. Looks like you are using a double boiler? Are you? What is the stainless steel bowl with the pouring lip...

    Talk to me about alternatives to EOs in soap (hydrosols, oil infusions, glycerin extracts)

    Glycerine is huge in my house. Due to the vapers. You are likely to get it cheaper at chem supplier or on eBay. I don't think you're in Australia but I'm sure this would be the case at most soap suppliers. As an example: 1l of veg glycerine averages $18.74 (did I mention that I live with a...

    Back to Basics Quick HP as son wanted Fyah soap for camping on weekend. So, hot process green tea Fyah (both green tea and matcha). Looks awful 😂😜🤣 but will serve it's purpose (full of goodness) and that's the most important thing right? go to @ResolvableOwl 's profile. Look at their...

    Twist-close Hexagon (Baumkuchen) Box – concept/mockup

    Off topic but what is a slaughter skeptic? A vegan? Sorry need to ask as I feel dumb & Dr Google didn't offer an results that made sense, only thing I could find was this: "Who censors you now, will also slaughter your grandchildren later. They know no bounds other than being held accountable...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    It looks lovely. I've not used nori in soap. I imagine with a salt soap it would smell awesome. Best thing about soaping that most of our experiments started out as an unintentional accident. 😍 Just so you know I shot mine in tungsten light and knew it would affect my photo. I do know about...

    Hello from Spain

    I like hot process too! I'm sure most love CP more because it allows more creativeness? I am new to the forum too (well sorta as I stalked for eighteen months before joining) so I'm not really qualified to welcome you, but I will anyway! Welcome 🥰🥰

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    Productive Sunday (public holiday tomorrow) and perfect weather (although most Brisbanites wouldn't agree!) in my opinion for formulating. Although my wrists have swollen up (FMS & arthritis) and my feet are sore. Self inflicted pain so I can not complain! 1. Soap ready! Some soap that I've...
