Hey all..

Soo I'm so tired of trying to get rebatch right.. If this soap does not harden I'm out about $25, I know that's not much, but at the same time it is to waste kwim? The reason I'm doing this soap is because I can not afford to spend lots of Christmas this year for family so am making them a bar of soap.. So really can't afford to mess up again.
I can possibly attempt to make from scratch in crock pot.. need to be able to do in garage so the lye does not effect my parrots.
So please if you can post some recipes for different soaps for the crock pot? I really like the shea butter, and also the goats milk is nice. But where do you find goats milk locally??
I googled and there are so many things... I'm looking for a SURE THING recipe LOL

thanks!!!
Candice

I don't have anything atm.. if you mean cooking oil just canola.. but I'm sure that's not what you mean.
I would need to buy everything for it I guess.
This would be my first time making from scratch.

Thanks!

75% OO
20% Coconut Oil
5% Castor

Do CP or HP. Will need a bit longer to dry out HP than other recipes, but this makes a fantastic, moisturizing, bubbly bar when aged 2 months.

Can use water or Goat's Milk for the liquid.

I dont have any recipes but just wanted to say I share your 'making in the garage because of the bird' scenario. I have glass sliding doors to mine so I just close them and my little fid sits and watches me from inside, its real cute :)

Why don't you post the recipe you have been using and maybe someone can help you tweak it?
