That’s too funny.
So is there a Shalimar dupe out there?
I use kaolin clay (1T ppo), colloidal oatmeal (1/2 T ppo) and tussah silk in all of my batches. I also use sugar, aloe vera juice, and sodium lactate. I used to use charcoal mixed with black oxide to get a deep black, but now I use Mad Mica's Wicked mica and I love it! I still use charcoal for my eucalyptus EO facial soap for its properties, but it isn't nearly as pretty as the Wicked mica.
I made soap with a bunch of 'new to me' FOs this summer. The last ones will be 6 months old at the end of this month, so I'll post my thoughts of them on this thread.
These are the ones I soaped with:
Tassi Lavender/Blue Chamomile blend
All Souls Day
The blend used by Irish Lass for the perfect OMH scent - Daystar's Milk Sugar Kisses blended with Oregon Trail's OMH.
A blend recommended by Katie Carson (Royalty Soap) as the perfect peach scent - equal amounts of NG Perfect Peach and FB Georgia Peach.
Which fragrances do you like from Micas and More? I've tried two I really like: Burst of Energy and Lavender & Apricot. Both soaps were made recently, so I can't yet report on how long they last. I can say that they were both well-behaved: no discoloring, no ricing, no acceleration.
Here you go
Shalimar - ugh - I hate it too. My mom once gave me a bottle. I sold it on ebay.
I bet that is going to last FOREVER! Lol with all that "cure" time lol
OH WHY? lmao who doesnt want to smell like lysol wipes
Totally different FO but the NS fairy garden smells like old lady in cp and boy it sticks on everything including your hands if u wash with it.
Please, please, PLEASE,. Update on all the fragrances... The ones listed above have me waiting with extreme anticipation!
I'm not a lavender person, but I've heard really good things about the lavender & apricot.
I totally love that Steph tests her fragrances and shares those samples with you. I have soap samples she sent me this summer and I can still smell the scents.
I recommend her
1. Brown sugar and fig (spot on dupe of bbw)
2. Black raspberry and vanilla
3. Viva la juicy
My soap samples are all at least 6 months old.
I think I'm having a brain fart lol
Which company is FB? Looking into the Georgia Peach that was mentioned
@noni2009 In case @cerelife doesn't see this, I'm pretty sure FB is Fragrance Buddy.
@SoapSisters I really like Ancient Incense from Micas & More. I haven't tried many of the fragrance oils she offers yet, but I would like to try Dr. Peppermint and if I ever decide to get Love Spell again, I will probably try it from there. I don't think I liked the Baja Cactus Blossom much, but that is probably just my personal feeling. I don't remember why I didn't care for it either.
Dibbles, I did not like Baja Cactus Blossom when I first poured it, but it did improve after curing. I really began to like it when it became a good seller. but it honestly did get better after curing.
I can confirm the Candle Science Love Spell - I have a bar that is one year old and it still smells as strong as when it was poured.
Apricot Freesia is amazing in lotion but a NO NO in CP Soap!
Apricot Freesia is amazing in lotion. It’s a No No in CP soap! Just my 2 cents!
How much are you using?
