    What soapy thing have you done today?

    My soapy thing has been catching up on about a month of posts here. Missed you guys. Been feeling Covid crappy and haven’t done much of anything. I don’t have Covid. Just the low-level angst we are all dealing with. And a giant smooch to whichever amazing person suggested putting the jar of EO...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    I actually like the pink and black bathrooms, although the aqua ones from the same era are my favorite. My grandparents had an aqua one in mint (haha) condition. You guys are making my day. I’m inspired by the beautiful (or should I say fancy? 😋) soap I see you do. I aspire to swirl greatness..

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    Cut my soap. I colored it with pink clay and activated charcoal. I forgot to add the eo, but it wouldn’t be one of my soaps if I didn’t screw something up. 🙄 Fortunately I used cocoa butter and it smells lovely despite my best efforts. The colors remind me of the pink tiled bathrooms from the...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    My soapy thing was catching up on pages and pages of this thread. It’s been so long since most of you posted that I couldn’t really reply. However, I’m dying to know the verdict on the rhubarb pie. And @KiwiMoose I wish we were neighbors so I could take some of the passion fruit off your hands...

    Thanks everyone. I bought a bottle from Camden Grey. Was thinking of making a batch today to try it out.

    Lavender eo recs please

    Hi gang, Thought I would ask where you get (and what brand) your lavender eo. I finally ordered a 16oz bottle and am very disappointed in it. It’s made by Sun Essentials (purchased on Amazon). It accelerates like mad, which I don’t remember happening with whatever lavender I had used before. And...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    After some not so stellar soaps, I've decided to step back and simplify things. I made an itp swirl and a drop swirl. Both came out well. I might even do a solid color. Gasp. Trying to follow the KISS theory of keeping it simple. Your friend will like the soap and even though it isn't what you...

    Another first of 2021

    Are you a Steelers fan?

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    Since this is my first time using a lotion bar I'm probably not that well versed. It had cocoa butter, which smells dreamy. They are a little hard, so was thinking that this might be a better recipe to make when it's warm. It takes a bit of rubbing/dragging to get it on my skin. However, once I...

    Stiff cream

    My daughter likes the scent in Dream Cream. Does anyone know if there’s a dupe fo available? I looked on NS and nothing seemed right.

    What went wrong? Avert your eyes....

    I think we should have a thread for our disaster soaps. That baby poo one wins hands down right now!

    What went wrong? Avert your eyes....

    Thank you @earlene . I don’t think I could duplicate the results on this one. I like the pink and I like the rivers. I think the lines are a little odd (hence the saggy skin). I packait up for friends and called it by its fragrance, which is lavender mint. @Zing I can’t believe you haven’t...

    Just cut one of the loaves of soap I made yesterday. A drop swirl. And I think the friend I showed how to soap now has the bug. Mwah ha ha.

    So here’s another in my 2020 series of weird soap. I think calling it saggy skin would be the right name for it. What do you think?

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    Beautiful soap @Misschief ! These are the lotion bars I made yesterday. How have I never made these before?? The cream colored ones are a Soap Queen recipe with cocoa butter. I left them unscented because the cocoa butter is just so yummy. The pink ones are @Zing inspired with meadowfoam oil...

    I have another soap to add to that thread. I think I’ll call it saggy skin. Photos to come.

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    I completely agree. I’m not disparaging her product. I think the packaging is lovely. Her website is nice (although it doesn’t seem to be working when I try and click through it. And good for her that she got a write up in NY Magazine. She’s going to have a huge waiting list, which will probably...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    I read a review of someone trying a lotion bar and loving it so much she got her mother and grandmother hooked on them. What blew me away was that they cost $45/bar. @Zing @Misschief Is that the going rate? I might have to give up my day job. 🤣 And they didn’t even mention meadow foam oil. 😁...

    Looks so much better without the yellow. Baby barf soap has been named "Beautiful on the Inside" and sent to friends along with some much nicer ones. It's part of my 2020 series of mishaps. I think we can all relate.
