I've got to say,i'm sooo glad I found this forum. reading this just cracked me up. Finally someone besides me gets soooo excited about the same things that I do. I've always said,"I'm like A child at christmas time" when I get my orders. Everybody arond my house,(except my 7 year old daughter) thinks i'm nuts. And there are 7 of us. Me, my husband and our 5 children. And nobody really understands my excitement. I just love the fact that now when I want to talk about my ideas and I get excited I'll have someone to talk to that'll actually listen and understand where I'm comming from. :D

The witch hazel and Jewelweed go in a poison ivy soap, Thats actually why I started making soap.. My soap making adventures have expanded into a kind of artful creation, A long way from making a treatment for poison ivy.

I love the idea of a handmade bar of poison ivy soap. That is just so cool.

I have been waiting and waiting for the time I could afford this expense! They are very reasonably priced, but hey, we are a household of 7 and well.....you know. lol. Everyone here who uses them have had nothing but great comments on theirs, so I see this as a definite necessary purchase. I think it will greatly help my process. I do think that down the line I will have to get a couple more....I am not a very patient person :oops: and have a feeling that the minute I do my first batch in them I will be on the horn for more. :lol: That's okay, this is an investment into a business, right?!?!

You guys! Thanks for everyone's wonderful comments. I get just as much joy as you guys do reading how happy you are using my products. I may be slower to get things out the door, but by golly, your items will be the best made products available on the net and at a reasonable price.

Paul, that is why I turned to you to fill this need. Quality - excellent quality. When there are so many here who have purchased, used and have come back with all positive comments....why go elsewhere?! :wink:
My wonderful husband is fixing up a nice soaping place for me adjacent to my pottery studio. I am going to also carve out a small home gallery that friends can come and shop whenever, soap and pots. I have done some soap dishes, when they are fired, glazed and re-fired I will post pics. I also have made some lotion pumps, but haven't yet tried to make lotions to fill them...just looking down the road. k

Paul I bought 8 bottles of the liquid Vit E, I've often thought of buying the gel caps but I havent yet fiquired a way to get the oil out easily. If you find a way let me know. I got 25 oz of 30,000 IU for just over $21.. I couldnt pass it up. I put Vit E in almost every soap. I'm going to order some Tea tree oil from from them next.

Neil, I think I have it figured out! I took a garlic press, the metal ones, and placed about 8 gel caps in and squeezed.....voila, the liquid came out and into a waiting glass pint Mason jar! It worked perfectly. Just turned it over and discarded the gelatin caps in the trash!

It took me a day but then it hit me. I said; "Dear, where is that garlic press of yours?" 15 minutes later 100 gel caps fresh squeezed.
