    Bubble Scoops crumbling

    I used the recipe from Nature's Garden and Candles to test making bubble scoops. Everything was measured exact and I followed every step. Once it came to scooping them, they fell apart once I released them from the scoop! I tried making the shape into a bubble bar instead, but they fell apart...

    Combining recipes on SoapMaker 3

    I have been making some soap with frosting on top, but I have no idea how to enter it into the Soapmaker 3 program without having the frosting recipe separate. Is there a way to combine the base and frosting recipes? I would like to sell these bars and I wish there was a better way of doing it...

    Water discount on SoapCalc

    If it's a 33% lye water solution, so how could I calculate that in the SoapCalc? Nevermind. I reread the post and spaced out lol I'm sorry. Thank you for your help.

    Water discount on SoapCalc

    I just purchased the Royalty Soaps piping set and after watching some of the exclusive videos, I noticed that a recipe says it's a 20% water discount. How do I put that in the SoapCalc? I want to save the special recipe, but don't know how to input the water discount in the app. Help!

    Oatmeal Milk and Honey

    I use a stick blender, but next time I will add it to the oils before adding the lye-water. Hopefully it makes a difference.

    Oatmeal Milk and Honey

    I added the FO at a light trace and slowly mixed it in.

    Oatmeal Milk and Honey

    So I tried to make a batch of triple butter soap from scratch instead of using the pre-mix bags, and this is Oatmeal Milk and Honey scented. Thoughts? I cut it and some oil looks like it didn't fully mix even though it was at a medium trace.

    Very first attempt at CP soap

    I got it at Hobby Lobby because I never used that scent before and I wasn't sure if I'd like it. I'm going to definitely get it from somewhere else though, since theirs accelerated trace.

    Very first attempt at CP soap

    It smells amazing! My daughter said it smells like cookies and now she wants some lol If I could I'd make soap every day! Sadly, I don't have the space for all of them to cure yet. I'm thinking for my next batch to try red, white, and blue layers so it will be ready for the 4th of July.

    Very first attempt at CP soap

    I'm keeping track of the bars' weight weekly so I know how much each one has lost.

    Very first attempt at CP soap

    My loaf mold holds about 32oz of oils, so whenever I cut the bars at 1", I always end up with a sliver. I have weighed out each bar (sliver too) and they are all either over or under 4oz with the average weight bring 3.9oz. I want to get or make a soap cutter as I'm clearly not getting these...

    Very first attempt at CP soap

    I cut the loaf and the bars look beautiful! I'm so amazed with the color! Here's my second attempt at soap. It's my own blend of a triple butter recipe using SoapCalc and I added an Oatmeal, Milk and Honey fragrance oil which turned out to speed up trace. Good thing I caught it and poured...

    Very first attempt at CP soap

    I have a sample box from Amazon and I used 3 of the .15 cc scoops, so maybe more next time?

    Very first attempt at CP soap

    Today I made a loaf using Bramble Berry's Lots of Lather mix. I used their Dogwood and Ginger Blossom fragrance and a wine red mica. After mixing, I know I need to get better at recognizing light trace. It was a bit past that when I added everything in. I hope it comes out great and holds the...

    Cricut and Soap Boxes

    So i just got myself a Cricut Explore Air 2 so I can make my labels and hopefully half-soap boxes as well. Does anyone have an idea as to how I can make the boxes? I've looked online for template ideas, but so far every box I found has a lid or is fully closed. I like the half-box (holster) look...

    Mixing lye indoors or outdoors?

    When I read that I noticed that they said that mixing lye into water or the reverse makes "no difference". I personally will always mix it lye into water, despite what others suggest or say. If it works for them doing the reverse, hey, awesome for them, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.
