    It's been awhile... but here's some soap!

    Haven't been on the forum for awhile because it's been so crazy since the school year started, but here are a few I've been working on: The first one is BB's Gingersnap, the second is NG's Black raspberry Vanilla, the third is Peak's Pumpkin Spice; and fourth is NG's Christmas Cabin. They...

    Wonderstruck dupe

    Does anyone know of any FO companies that carry a dupe of the Taylor Swift Wonderstruck scent? I have a niece that loves the scent and would like some soap with the scent. Thanks!

    Made my usual OMH soap the other day and put it in the fridge. It looked so pretty on top when I went to cut it and saw it was gelled inside! Bummer! I had planned to put the OMH soap into a silicone mold and put it in the fridge (which works better for me in the summer to prevent gelling) but...

    Kids are ninjas!

    Just a reminder to keep all your bath and body stuff out of the reach of children! My 18 month old gets into everything and I have been pretty good at keeping the soaps out of her reach and definitely my supplies. Unfortunately, the little fart has figured out how to open my bedroom door...

    Storage of CP in summer

    I have been worried about storage and curing of all my CP soaps during the summer. I used to live in GA and had central air and kept things very cool so I had no issues for previous summers, but we are now in upstate NY and the temps and humidity have been high! We have no AC in our new home...

    My HP leopard spot attempt

    Was playing with my soap yesterday and then tried to do a HP leopard spot soap. I don't think it came out too bad and I have some ideas to try for next time!

    Weekend soaps!

    I didn't get a chance to make bar soap until Sunday night but I was able to squeak out one hot process- Buttercream Snickerdoodle (brown and white) and my mica swirl which I scented with BB's Grapefruit Lily. My house smells so good now! Both of the FOs seem to compliment each other- so yummy!

    Finally, some liquid soap!

    I've been fighting with my liquid soap and finally have some that I am fairly satisfied with, yay! I fragranced this batch with NG's Coconut Lime Verbana--which reminds me of the beach! Can't wait to use this stuff! Still has little tiny bubbles in it from being poured into the bottles, but...

    Frustrated, please help!

    I hope I can get some help here. I have been working on LS for what feels like forever. I have a few recipes that I can get nice and clear after dilution. I did have issues with clouding after adding EOs and FOs but after using a little bit of Polysorbate 80 after dilution and after scenting...

    My BB swap soap

    I signed up for the BB soap swap this year. My first time doing a swap and I'm pretty excited. Can't wait to see what I get to try from other soapers! Well, here is my contribution: Chocolate Chai The soap layer in the middle is supposed to darken to a medium brown so I guess I'll have to...

    Mango from ED

    I tried a new FO-- Mango madness from ED. Now usually I only order lye and some EOs from ED, but decided, "What the heck?" the other day and ordered two FOs: Clean Cotton and Mango madness. I didn't use CP for the Clean Cotton but put it into my liquid laundry soap-- not bad. Just tried using...

    Cloudy due to FOs/EOs

    I have been experimenting with liquid soaps for awhile and was wondering what the best way to clear up cloudy liquid soaps would be? I have a recipe that after dilution is crystal clear, but after adding certain FOs or EOs can get cloudy. What's best to use? I have used glycerin as a...

    My weekend soaps

    Here are a couple of soaps from the weekend. The first is a confetti soap using a valentine's day soaps shredded up. The FO was lily of the valley from BB. The second is a swirl in the slab mold my hubby made for me. Didn't come out exactly the way I wanted, but it's ok. It was scented with...

    Thyme EO

    I purchased some thyme EO ( a small amount) hoping to use it in some blends, but I think it stinks! I thankfully only ordered a couple of ounces but was wondering if there was anything I could blend it with? I hate to throw anything out, even a couple of ounces. I don't know why, but for me...

    Mint chocolate

    This is a mint chocolate soap I made recently. Smells like thin mints and I love it! I tried a hanger swirl and I think it cam out ok. I had tried a hanger swirl before, but it didn't come out well. This time I used a McDonald's straw and taped it over the hanger to make it thicker and...

    Bottle help please

    Not sure if this is the best spot for this, but was wondering if anyone had suggestions for bottle suppliers? I would like to package body wash and hand lotion with hopefully coordinating bottles. I like the idea of Malibu bottles for lotion and a regular round/oval bottle with pump maybe for...

    Will these sell?

    Ok, I love to make soap but I also love to make knitted and crocheted items. In the future, if I ever get to do a craft show or fair I would love to sells my soaps but I would also like to sell other handmade items like knitted wash cloths, scrubbies etc. Has anyone else done this with their...

    Cloth diapers

    In between soaping and "mommying" I was able to make some diapers for my youngest. I had made some for her when she was first born, but she grew out of them and we moved to a different state and then I had to deal with a medical issue. Finally made her some pretty ones and she loves 'em...
