    milk soap

    My personal favorite is yogurt. I freeze it and use it as my lye liquid and then add even more at trace. I think the special ending properties in the soap has to do with the fat content. So, I go for that highest fat content no matter which milk I'm going to work with. :?

    corn oil

    I have used corn oil in my batches. I read that it possessed some of the same properties as olive oil. To me it acted similar. I do soap in small batches so you may want to investigate if this oil will work for you. It is more affordable than olive oil and I had no problems soaping with it. Hope...

    When to add aloe vera?

    I add mine at the trace because I feel like it will maintain the integrity better. :?

    Using egg in soap

    Never tried eggs before I have a soap book that includes recipes on egg soaps but I have never tried them. I have made tofu soap before. The tofu cakes lend a creamy richness to the soaps as well. I might try the eggs, I love being creative. :P

    raw fruits and vegetables

    I have a fresh food fetish when it comes to soaping. I feel that by adding milk and produce that I am nourishing my skin naturally and I love it! I always add my produce at trace and I have 4 year old food soaps that are just delightful. Never had any rancicity. Have fun! :P

    Recycle soap

    My mother did this in a different way. She would add a small amount of water to her old shavings and mash them up together. It wasnt goregous but she saved her scraps!

    The assumption that handmade soap isn't as "good".

    Whenever I get the chance I like to let people know that if they used the right cleansers for their face and body that their skin wouldnt get so dry. I used to depend on that high price stuff at the cosmetic counters at the mall. It never really did me any good. I am also very quick to hand out...

    Help, I'm under seize! LOL!!

    I wouldn't say it is for sure ruined. I have had a lot of batches trace and thicken quickly according to the small batches and certain ingredients that I have worked with. They have turned out just fine! What have you got? Tell us so that the seasoned soapers can advise you more accurately. :)
