    Coconut essential oil

    has anyone heard of coconut essential oil?! Is there such a thing? I’ve searched it up and there’s one company that carries it. It’s CO2 extracted. ?! But I’m so sure about it.

    ooohhhh, the aroma is changing.

    I went into my sewing room today and instead of the overpowering smell of lavender (well I thought it was overpowering but I do have a very sensitive nose) I am starting to smell the coconut from the coconut oil I used. Don't worry, I won't be giving you a daily update on the curing of my first...

    Issues with a veg oil soap that's palm and soy.

    Hi, all, I'm wondering what I did wrong with the formulation of a veg oil soap (experimental) that's 70% palm oil & 30% soy. I added some coconut oil, olive and castor. No added salt, sugar or fragrance. My issues are 2. I just unmolded and cut it tonight and, though I know it's raw, the...

    2% does make a difference

    Stupid me, I decided to up my CO/PKO by 2% to up bubbly factor, that did not work out well. Yep, it lathers better and faster than my 15-17% CO/PKO in most soaps but it is now going to require me to age it at least 3 months if not 4 before taking to market. Sadly I needed these for restocking...

    Rice milk Soap

    Hi, I use 100% coconut oil , with 20% sf as a base for all my soap. I've been wanting to use rice milk as the main additive. There seems to be two schools : one being to use the rice milk as water replacement or to blend rice milk with oils. I've done the first one and it has been a living...

    I am attempting to make my own shampoo bar (have not had good success with this in the past) based on a shampoo bar I bought and really liked. The two main oils are coconut and sunflower.

    My First Batch & Zap

    I made this yesterday night. I put it in molds at about 7 PM last night. I do not have a stick blender & used my whisk, sometimes attaching it to a hand-held blender, sometimes doing it by hand. I think I did about 10 minutes of blending but it never got to trace. I lost faith and looked up on...

I made two batches of soap using this new oil and they were both total failures. Columbus sent me another shipment, and soap made from that batch also...
