Hi did u try the viration of her recipe how did it turn outZany, I tried your recipe. It creates a super hard bar, good lather, and a nice feel. Really like it. Thanks for sharing. I'm looking for a really simple recipe that makes a good bar. I've used up to 7 oils in a recipe and that's really too much for me. I think this will be one of my staples; it's simple and to the point. I saw you had a variation of this with 40% shea, 25% CO, 5% CA, & 30% OO or other oil. I'm going to try that also.
Did you S/F and how did u like your variation of that recipeYou're welcome!
