    • I now have a list of soaps I want to try as long as my arm.
    • I fiddle about on soap calc every minute I get, mucking around with different oil mixes to find the 'perfect' mix, and then save all the recipes to try
    • I keep buying soap moulds, and oil and EOs/FOs
    • I think about soap all the time, and can't wait until its the weekend so I can make some.
    Is this normal?

    Then comes seeing every food and plant and oil with soap-colored glasses...... Yep, normal!

    Hi, I'm Cellador and I've been addicted to soaping for almost 2 years now. Not "normal" but we support and understand these feelings here at SMF ;)
    Soon, you will see trace in everything (sauces, lotion, shampoo, etc) and dream of soaping.

    - I check Soapmaking.forum.com 24/7
    - Somehow 3 hours pass online because I was going to watch "just one" 7-minute YouTube swirling tutorial

    @KiwiMoose So funny that you posted this, as I was just feeling the same way!! I've made/sold cleaning products for about 2 years now (selling since last year).. always said I had no interest in body care.. and then I moved to hard water land.. and wanted to make soap for myself, and gifts...

    Now, I want to make ALL the soap, and balms, and lotions, and, and and!! It's a slippery slope, for sure, lol!
