Would love to see what you currently have active or plan to, post some details or better yet photos of your current/future project.

I have fallen back on basic olive oil and coconut, using HP. I have re-purposed my crockpot for this. Friends seem to like the simplicity and absence of perfume. I have been told that my soap cures all kinds of skin ailments, but we all know that it is just that absence of the twenty, or so, ingredients listed on commercial soaps.

I do not write much on the forum. I make soap for gifting and small selling. I have educated some of the goodness to handmade soap vs. Store bought. I make standard soaps nothing fancy colors as it takes away from health benefits. I have however made French clay soap for my adult girls. They love it. To buy in a store your looking at 6 - 12 dollars a bar. They figure moms is cheaper..lol

I've been working on melt and pour lately. After spending so long making cp, this is really fun.

New Products

Hi everyone. I've been very absent lately, sorry. I've been working on new products for our line. We finally have a nice hair oil. I just need to get labels done. Thanks for keeping me in the loop.

Right now I primarily just make my own personal shaving soaps and occasionally will gift them to friends and family. Really hoping to learn more about scent creation/perfuming.

my recent soaping adventures

These are a couple pics of my early spring activities.
Here in Quebec, maple season is beginning, so I'm in maple sugar mode.:)

Thanks for the contact

I have been away from soaping for a long time, but I am interested in getting back into it so I will be catching up on the latest going on here!

At this time I'm just in learning mode, and actually quite amazed as all the myriad of products, methods, and ingredients that are utilized, as well as how various people utilize this mix of art and science in producing products.

So, for the time being, I'm just lurking along and being inspired, but thanks for the nudge and the encouragement to make a post!

Kindest regards,

Bradley

Very nice! How come my textured tops look nothing like that?
Hi, just wait a few moments after putting all of your soap batter in the mold before texturing. It has to have the consistency of semi thick cream before you texture it. Take your time and learn how long it takes your recipe and/or scent to set up.

Yes! There are plenty of videos on YouTube but not sure if they are labeled to identify designing the tops of your soap. Search by textured tops.

I don't have any videos on YouTube yet, but I do broadcast making soap on Periscope. If you are on Periscope, search for Beauty Mixtress. I have a few accounts but select the one with 1200 followers. There you will find a list of my broadcasts. The ones that state Making Soap is the one you need.

I have been plagued with scents that accelerate the last 8 batches. I am just snake bit. Can't make a batch that behaves to save my life. And now I have bronchitis...again.

Good news is that my dear, sweet, wonderful hubby make me my first wooden mold-5 lb if I did my math correctly.

Experimenting with some different techniques :))

These are a few examples of different techniques I wanted to try. I am really pleased with them. They all contain kefir, oat & rice milks, silk and Celtic sea salt. Lots of soft, creamy & bubbly lather :)

Hi Everyone, I've been off the forum for a long while because my (hot process) soaping business has picked up so much lately! I've been commissioned by a Thai Foot Reflexologist to create a range of soaps/balms/lotions/shampoos/toothpastes. She works mainly with cancer patients and is looking for a range of anti viral/anti bacterial/anti fungal and healing products. So far I've made a bar with goatsmilk and 4 thieves oil and neem and lavender. Having lots of fun creating!
