I'm new to the board as well as new to the whole soap making concept. I've been lurking the board for a while now and finally decided to break down and join. I do have a question though: I keep seeing abbreviations like FO and EO and stuff. Can someone fill me in on what all these things mean?

Here are a few of the basics:

FO: fragrance oils
EO: essential oils
CP: cold process
HP: hot process
M&P: melt and pour
B&B: bath and body

Anyone want to help me continue the list?
