  1. That's a good idea, I hadn't thought of that.
  2. Ok, thanks! I didn't know there was a fill line. So, even though I don't know where that line is, I'll just fill it as full as I can and still be able to add a pump.
  3. Hi guys, this is probably a stupid question, but if I have these 8 oz pet bottles and I want to fill them with lotion, and put 8 fl oz on the label, do I have to fill them to the very top? If so, what about if I need to put a pump in it...that would then displace some of the lotion (as much as a tablespoon, probably) and then it wouldn't really be 8 oz, anymore, would it? So, then if I use a pump, I'd have to label it as 7.5 fl oz, or what? I notice all the commercial lotion I see goes by fl oz versus just oz. Thanks for any light y'all can shine on this for me!
  4. Thanks for this heads up, Trappeur! When I saw it, I went on over to Zazzle and found something that would work for a label. My poor label has been languishing in the recesses of my mind for quite some time now, and thanks to you and this sale, it has now achieved physicality. Yay!! Seeing that you said it was for Tuesday only, I worked for hours and got a small order in just before midnight. But then, lo and behold, the sale continued! So, for the next few days I neither ate nor slept while working away at getting all the scents I wanted done up in the fonts I wanted, and not just for soap but for candles too. Okay, I did eat and sleep, but I spent a lot of time on Zazzle!! Went to bed very late a couple nights. I placed several orders (they only let you have 50 different things in your cart at one time) and put in my final order close to the final cutoff of midnight last night. A big thank you!! I can't wait for them to arrive!
  5. I'm curious which of these 3 you most recommend? Or are they all equally good to you?
  6. I'd suggest using either the OT oil or the FB one, both of which Trapp says smell accurate (they just don't throw in her wax), and send it to a duper. Then, hopefully their version actually would throw.
  7. That's great! So glad you were able to find something that works. So, I'm curious, is your blend similar to the scent your customer was searching for?
  8. By the way, last year Cierra Candles started carrying a Perfect Man FO, and it costs about half what NG's does. I don't know how similar it is, but I'm assuming they were duping it. You miight give it a try.
  9. WSP has a Bergamot Amber. It smells nice. You could try adding some vanilla to it. I might try it myself.
  10. I have the NDA Orange Ginger, but I have never smelled BBW's. I will say that NDA's does NOT fit the description of "quintessential fall scent", so you may want to look elsewhere.
  11. Hi guys, can you tell me what to do for labeling when my lard says "BHT and Citric acid added to improve stability?" Do I need to add BHT and Citric acid to the ingredient list? If so, how should I do so? Should it be like: "Olive oil, lard (contains BHT and citric acid for stability), coconut oil, etc, etc.?" Or does that need to be tweaked a bit? I'm really hoping I don't have to include that into, but I probably do. I checked out a bunch of lard soaps on Etsy and couldn't find a single one that included the BHT and citric acid in their ingredients list, which means either they are all rendering their own lard, or not listing it. Thanks!
  12. Do you find that the molds last a long while, or do they give up the ghost?
