    Post your happy

    I got a job offer!!! Unless something changes between now and the morning, I’m moving within the next handful of weeks! My soaping stuff will probably go dormant for a while 🥲 But here’s to exciting new adventures!

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    @The_Phoenix Nerding out about soap during an interview sounds like a great way to relax! I bet you nailed it!

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    It’s not really a soapy thing, physically, but I had a job interview today and was asked what hobbies I had outside of work. I said I make soap! It seemed to be a good answer. 😁

    Hard Oils & Lye Concentration

    So I came up with a base recipe that I like. It’s got a fair amount of hard oil, so I’ve been using a 30% lye concentration but I feel like I have all kinds of problems, particularly glycerin rivers. I’ve experimented with soaping temps from 90-120 F. I typically SB just to emulsion because with...

    Ode to Castor oil

    I love castor oil in my soaps, but my favorite use for it isn’t even soapy (although you could argue that it’s related). I use a 50/50 blend of castor and grapeseed oils to wash my face. My skin was never so happy.

    It makes me think of fire. Which I guess is similar to a desert sunset!

    July 2021 SMF Soap Un-Challenge - Confetti/Cubes

    So I’m really kinda disappointed with mine, even if I do love the colors. I would have made another batch, but honestly, between work stuff (to include a possible new job & move) and having company, I‘ve been too distracted to soap too much this month. This was a weird batch; it refused to set...

    Post your Gripe

    @Catscankim LOL! We have to live in a state of constant readiness! I work in blood bank and we’ve always been told, “The FDA could come at any moment!” Kind of hyperbolic but true. 😁 I think that even with no inspection, you still made leaps and bounds toward that time when they do decide to...

    Post your Gripe

    Wow. I hope it’s not too harsh to say this, but your managers sound worthless. I don’t know them, obviously, but I know the type……and I suspect that once you took the reins and got the place straightened up, they were threatened. So the chairs became the one thing they could do so that they can...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    I received in the mail the gift that I got to choose for five years of loyal service to my employer. I chose a Kitchen Aid scale. The small platform can measure to hundredths of a gram! My old one can only go to whole grams. I’m pretty excited. Good luck to you! I’m in the job interview process...

    Brown Bath Bombs?

    Thats exactly what it was like. I felt like I was in a chocolate commercial, one of those ones where you’re floating down some kind of a chocolate river. Or maybe on Willy Wonka’s chocolate river. 🍫
