    Tested my 100% Lard soap bars

    On Christmas day (12-25-19) I tested my Lard soap bars. It had been 31 days since I made them and I really didn't expect them to be fully cured. My original plan was to let them cure to the 15th of January. The soap made bubbles and washed my hands well but it left a greasy film. I didn't feel...

    Can I sprinkle Epsom Salts on top of CP soap?

    I have read in old poststhat epsom salts / magnesium does not react well in soap. However, if I want to use them just as decoration on top of it, do you think it would work? How about on melt and pour soap? I am trying to incorporate them in a design I am thinking of. Thanks!
