    What are good oils to use in a lotion recipe?

    I use shea butter, cocoa butter and grapeseed oil. Can't remember what else. It seems to have a very long shelf life. I have mature skin and live in a dry climate.

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    Your Rhubarb root infusion is beau-ti-ful. I don't know why your indigo does that, mine doesn't, maybe I used a bit of TD in mine. It did make blue bubbles though and was plant material i got from a weaver.

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    Zing, I thought I discovered that Bergamot in a 50-50 ratio kicked up the Geranium scent but now I think 75 geranium, 25 Bergamot is the ticket. I also add 1 teaspoon of Pachouly in addition as a base note and to hold the scent better. It is not discernable as pachouly but it enhances the...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    I used up the last of the olive oil infused with rhubarb root. It is paler in color than I was hopeing, so made more oil today. The specks are cranberry fiber. I made a killer blend for the Geranium EO. Going to try this again and hope for more pink next time.

    Making blue jeans - need advice please!

    After reading all the responses and seeing the photo, I vote for don't worry about it and just don't ever iron the seams real flat, it will happen on it's own! Just MHO. Someone here mentioned the twill weave of denim which exagerates the wear pattern, that's all it is. Just see if you can...

    Making blue jeans - need advice please!

    The puckering could be the thing that landed these for sale in Big Lots instead of the Gap. A quirky possibly. Well, I bow to you for attempting this. I went to fashion design school and sewed chamois shirts in a factory and have done a little in the way of stage clothes...... and I would...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    oooooooooh, peppermint and lavender, I have never tried that! Why not? The pink is so pretty! One of mine was too strong and looked like liver. That is the perfect shade of strawberry ice cream pink. Love it.

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    Well, I might have a bright forehead, but I also have some nice soap. I used my new mold, over a year old and I finaly got to it. So much nicer to have a smaller batch and no hoisting 8 pounds in a heavy crock pot over my shoulder. Now I get to make soap more often because the batches are...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    I did something today that I haven't done before. I wore my long rubber gloves to make soap even though I noticed some white crusty stuff on them. Since I wear the same ones for dyeing fabrics, I thought it was leftover urea or soda ash, which while is not that skin friendly, it doesn't kill...

    Is there a scent that works well with Tea Tree Oil?

    Peppermint works well with Tea Tree. Careful how much, it tingles. I also like the Tea Tree, Peppermint and Pachouly blend and sell it to men as Refreshing Deodorant Soap.

    Fractionated Coconut Oil in CP

    I was taught in massage school that fractionated coconut oil was the best for massage because it doesn't collect in the sheets and go rancid making them permanently stinky like other oils. That's what I always used with a few drops of EO for fun. So, if you don't know what to do with it, try...

    Soap's In Shower

    Zing, I love your EO blends and try to emulate them sometimes, except you have good luck with Cedar and I have to throw it away. I just can't use Cedar as much as I would like to.

    Soap's In Shower

    Yes, and now you all have made me crazy, I have to design something to hold soap in the shower, about 10 bars, without getting it all wet and ruining it!

    Other hobbies.

    Hey! I resemble that sttement! I mean, really! Are you crazy, this is way creative! It all counts! It's all creative and you are a prize. Who teaches us to talk to ourselves in this manner? Sorry, I just went off because this is a pet peeve of mine.

    Other hobbies.

    Wow, a lot going on in this group, I have read with interest the many posts. I am lucky to be old (?) so I am retired and have time to do the hobby things when I feel like it. Unfortunately I am even more lazy (ahem, relaxed) now than I am old, so who knows when I will feel like it. Besides...
