Many of us have shared recipes. You just need to go back about 10 pages in the beginners section and will likely find several. Those of us in business dont generally share all out secrets there are many recipes that we have posted in the past that are freely available.Does anyone ever exchange soap recipes on here or are they all proprietary? If they do share recipes where can I find them? Thanks.
Maybe he/she was active off and on.You've been a member since 2010, and you are asking if we give recipes??
Thanks for explaining how to find recipes on here. I always like looking at new ones and had no idea how to find them on here. It was so hit and miss. I was amazed at what came up when I looked. ThanksOh my- yes- there are lots of great recipes from our experienced soapers that abound on this site that are eagerly awaiting you at the tip of the search function. I've happily shared a handful myself. For starters, just click on the Advanced Search button, type 'recipe' into the search box, click on 'search titles only' in the drop-down box, and then hit search. You'll have more recipe threads pop up (mostly all of which include a treasure-trove of sage input from our more experienced members- which is worth its weight in gold, btw) than you can shake a stick at!
Also, like Dixie said, a good place to start is the Recipe/Tutorial section of the forum.
Active, is not 22 posts in 6 years.Maybe he/she was active off and on.
I find it more strange that someone with that little posts and input to this forum would straight up ask for free recipes.
We all neee to start somehow, but it's not really much of a learning curve if you just end up using other soaper's recipes.
And in the end, it's not really nice. We all used our time and resources to work them out.
My starting recipe was basic one from Soap queen. Everything else, I've tweaked myself.I don't think I ever really asked for a recipe. My first soap was a play on one of Anne Watson's recipes and whenever I go back to that soap, I like what I feel and would love to tweek it more to make it a soap I love. I can't wait to try it on it's birthday. We'll both be a full year older then. :mrgreen:
I did not mean to sound confrontational. I just meant that if someone even casually glances at various threads over 6 years, they should know that recipes are shared constantly, and well discussed with other people saying they tried tweaking it this way or that way, yielding even more recipes.Members can be active without posting, i.e. just lurking.
It's different than actually contributing to the forum which was my point.
