Hi everyone: my name is Shannon, I haven’t posted many times but my goal is to try. I get a little nervous. However I really need to say how much I appreciate your knowledge and encouragement. I made my first pine tar soap and was so confused with all the different methods on the net. Then I thought ha! I bet there is info here. After reading a plethora of posts I jumped in. My notes said: this was a pleasant experience! I know right!? It turned out so well I scented with tea tree and lemongrass. The smokiness of the tar, the medicinal tea tree and the zip of lemongrass-so much yum! I even had time to pour and get my top nice and flat in a tall and skinny mold. Thanks for being here!
