    Make candles..and just getting my feet wet on Soap Making
  1. I recently, for the first time purchased from Oregon Trail supply the bug off essential Oils. I would like to make my spray as simple as possible is cyclomethicone a good base? or should I add anything else?
  2. it turned out great.. not quite as smooth as when it is first made. but totally acceptable. the body of the soap is smooth, but the top is not as smooth looking as a first pour.
  3. i have rematched soap back in the mold...looks pretty good too. Thanks for all the tips and help...
  4. Thanks, I found it
  5. ok....i understand now... I will give that a try in a few days. It is already in a mold, so I will have to scrape it out.. good...i hated to waste good soaping oils..
  6. how should i do for the extra water for the new lye.. I had thought of rebatching, but thought I would just be adding more water..
  7. I was making up some non fragranced soap.. I had my lye pre-batched from about a month ago, that I used. I had planned on using GM. So I thought I will just really make this nice and use all GM, instead of water.. My mistake is: I used twice as much at water/GM as I should have, and used 1/2 the amount of lye I needed..for the amount of soaping oils. Is there anyway to salvage this soap? I feel really stupid...after 9 1/2 years of making soap, I should not be making these kind of mistakes....
  8. It is a soft scent.. thanks kandlecrazy for posting the description
  9. i am not sure barbara.. does B&B dupe from others?
  10. I just recently was in the mall, & smelled this scent...I liked it so well I bought some. Not sure how new it is. But I am thinking it is fairly new. Does anyone know if a dupe has been introduced yet? I have checked several places that seem to do dupes, but no luck yet. I would love to make some things with this scent.
  11. They have been out of exotic amazon for along time.. i am about out
  12. hey moonshine...have you tried the balsam & citrus...it is awesome in 415 too
  13. wonderful...that is what i use...i will definitely give it a try..
  14. i have not tried it in wax...i will have to give it a try..Which wax do you use moonshine?
  15. beautiful colors...i love that fragrance too...your soap is beautiful..and that fragrance, it will stick forever & ever... and i found out too...once it starts moving, you had better work fast..
