Would love to see CP soap recipes. Especially gentle soaps with oatmeal or a Calamine soap ( this is for my grandson who has eczema) 

soaps for sensitive skin - clay soaps - Coconut milk - No animal fat recipes. Room sprays would be awesome too ! Best wicks for different

waxes - blending waxes for was melts - Foaming + fizzing Bath Salts ... Sorry for the long list :/

We love long lists, @Moonstar :) winter is coming. It is cold, long and dreary. In other words, a perfect time to address long lists. 

 

Chefmom and i spent a few solid hours on the phone recently planning out the wax&twice test roll out. Be excited! Be very excited...

 

i am in need of liquid soap in my home soon, too. That means articles on liquid soap!!!!!

How about some variations in how to physically wrap soaps and candles and  examples of product labeling, like:

ingredient listings: Do you do a basic Contains lard water and lye and may contain goat's milk, mineral pigments... etc..

 

How to word your labels: e.g.: 10% Superfat... How do you actually label that in a manner that the general public with no concept of how or what a lye discount is can understand what we are selling in a manner that is attractive to a customer.  E.g.: Sparky's ass-chapp'n handemade harwood lye soap and paint remover with 20% extra fat.

 

BUT REALLY What I could really use right this minute is a solid tutorial on how to properly and efficiently dress soap to get it ready to sell.  

Just my lousy 2 bits o'copper.

Oooohhhh, @Moonstar, what a great idea! Would you like to start a thread in the recipes section asking about cultural or family recipes? I LOVE spice combinations from different areas of the world, and how they are used. 

 

sadly, my New England-born-and-raised French Canadian background left me with bland, boiled heirloom family recipes :D I didn't realize until I moved away from home that cooked vegetables were not all soggy and brown :thumbsup2:

Wait... Whut? What other color is there for cooked veg? I mean even the "gray" ones are mostly brown. Even tomato and apple sauce is brown, (which I don't understand because they're both red or green, so they should make red or green sauce right?)  Show me these pictures of not brown cooked soggy vegetables because the only ones I know that aren't brown are Corn and Carrots and Peas and all three of them are mushy when cooked.

Looks a little raw to me, but one or 2 more days should get'm cooked right. Remember: "Beans cooked until gray, keep farts far away."

Lol ! Yeah, I just love food from other cultures, theres so much flavor. With the exception from Germany, I have close friends that are from Germany + most of

their food is bland. Although, I do love a few of their dishes, not sure how to spell one of them (weinersphitzel ??? lol ) but its so good. Oh, and can they knock

down the beer like nobodys business lol ! Honestly, Id watch their husbands drink SEVERAL beers and look unphased lol ! A thread with family or cultural recipes

sounds great !

Ive never in my life seen brown tomato sauce  lol ! Not sure if thats what you had - maybe it was bad ? I come from a family that makes their own sauce and its 

always red. Apple sauce wouldn't be red Sponier because its made from the apple not from its red peel lol ! So did you make this dish in the picture ? 

BTW thanks for the tip on beans LMAO !!!!!

Oh, you haven't lived until you've had tomato ketchup that was gray brown. 

No, I didn't make the picture. It's a picture of Fasolakia giaxni. 

 

And another tip: "Always cook your veg to mush or else your butt will never hush."  

(Yeah... I'm jam packed with COPIOUS amounts of "stuff" like that ;) )
