    Just made my first batch 3 hours ago...

    I started out on a DIY natural beauty kick, and I was kicking around online in bed, planning out a whole two-step washing, clay and essential oil and blabla regimen. The first site recommended a face wash with liquid castile soap as the base. IDK how much it costs where y'all live, but even...

    Hello, Soapy Friends!

    I'm Alexis, and I'm (obviously) new here :3 I've been intensely interested (dare I say, obsessed with) soaping for years. I made some MP bars back in the day, and loved it, but I really wanted to try CP. Unfortunately, I didn't have a good place for it, at the time, so I put it on the...
