    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:

    WSP
    Monkey Farts
    Irish Spring

    BB
    Blueberry Jam

    Soapalooza
    Bossa Nova
    Tassi Lavender/Blue Chamomile blend

    Nurture
    All Souls Day
    Flame Tree
    Cucumber Melon

    Oregon Trails
    Mysore Sandalwood

    Multi-Vendor Blends
    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.

    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.

    @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. :lol: 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.
