    Looking for a recipe for a super light facial moisturiser

    I've been scouring the internet for a recipe for a light, non greasy, non waxy feeling, quick absorbing facial moisturiser. So far I haven't found what I want, which is all of the above, and a water free, oil/butter only version. Most have e-wax or aloe vera gel in it. I'd rather not use either...

    Ideas of what to mix with these EO's?

    Oooh, Teresa, that sounds so good! Would love the 'recipe' for that :) Dibbles, I'm going to have to try that first blend, it sounds good. I have Ylang Ylang but not Amyris...what does it smell like?

    Want to increase richness in a recipe I like...

    Is KOH as readily available as NaOH? I haven't ever looked for it in town :) Or would I have to order it from an online supplier?

    Want to increase richness in a recipe I like...

    So: 35% Olive Oil 20% Coconut 35% Lard 5% Castor 5% Almond Would it be better to switch out the Almond for Avocado or just lower the Almond more and put the extra % to Lard?

    Another CP Soap Problem!

    At the beginning I add my lye to the goats milk. I use it instead of water. Now that's a good idea, Shunt2011 :) Will have to try it.

    Request to make Cinnamon scented soap...

    ...and I'm a bit leery about using the EO. The request is for a Cinnamon scented Essential Oil soap. I know cinnamon is a very potent, hot oil and am not sure at what percentage I should use it at to get enough scent without it being potentially harmful. My recipe will have a total of: 24 oz...

    Another CP Soap Problem!

    Yes, it's very odd. No, I haven't...good idea. Yeah, that's what I thought maybe too, but I've been making sure that (visually) all the lye is dissolved before I add the oils. Any other way to make even more sure that the lye is dissolved?

    Yes, there is soap ash on the tops of the yellow bars. The brown bar shows more what I'm talking about :) The yellow bars are just starting some bumps.

    Another CP Soap Problem!

    I've attached pictures of what problem I'm having trouble with cause it's kind of hard to explain. I'm getting hard, what bumps on my soap. They seem to 'grow' out of the soap after the soap is a couple days old. It's "random". I can't see any relation between recipes, temps, FO or EO. (and I...
