Just wanted to say hello from Pensacola, Florida. Started dabbling in soap making in of all places a Monastery, and really enjoyed the soap making process. They made Lye based soap, and one would think a monastery would be pretty chill... it wasn't, in fact the only time it was chill, was when I was making soap ! So I leave, life goes on, an one day I try my hand at melt n pour soap since I wasn't familiar with recipes. My entire thought process for melt and pour soap was basically how a caveman approached everything. My giant mistake, putting in way too much fragrance oil ! I got so slap happy with it, plus the base I was using was shea butter, but I doubt that made too much of a difference. All I knew was this tiny dropper was hardly putting anything out. An I wanted lots of smell good in the soap. 1 full month later of letting it set, figuring it needed to cure. because why read directions, right ? I had semi firm bars of soap that turned to gum the moment water touched it. I could of made use of it but I said bleh n hucked it all. SO after a lil research on here, low an behold, one doesn't need to go nanners with fragrance and one does not need to let melt and pour soap cure like a normal lye based soap ! * P.S, just looked at the bottle of smell good I have, it is an Essential Oils, which I just learned is super concentrate ,, slow claps * Good times. Great story I know. Later people.
