    rendering tallow

    Some just boil it in water several times. Other do water and baking soda I believe it is. They render it then set it to cool and take off the clean fat then do it again. I needs to be cleaned until no impurities are left. So, it depends on how clean it is to start and where the fat is from.

    Peak....again with the closing.

    I never purchased from them again after the last time. I'll miss a couple of their fragrances but will certainly move on with replacements.

    Ace Hardware Label - Which one?

    I like the first one. It draws your attention immediately. The second is nice but I think the first is more campy and catchy. Beautiful as always.

    Hi Lindsey and welcome! I'm a soap and B&B maker. No candles.

    2 new soaps.

    Those are great as always. @moonshine No, the glitter doesn't stick when used in the shower. It's a bear when using it dry but I've never come out of the shower looking like a glitter fairy....I use glitter on almost all my soaps. My husband wishes I didn't as it has a tendency to get everywhere when making the soap. He usually has a sparkle or two going... ha ha
  6. I like #3 too. They are awesome as always!

    Next Craft Fair Coming!

    I like those. I have a couple I display cupcake soaps in at shows. Mine are a bit bigger. I think they are cute.
  8. I think it's lovely. Nice job!
  9. Those are absolutely awesome!
  10. When I started soapmaking years ago I too was going for as natural as possible, however, I was continually getting requests for scents like Love Spell, Mango etc....started switching from EO's to FO's and my sales tripled. I still carry a few EO soaps but FO scents hands down sell better than my EO soaps and body products. At least in my area, people aren't that picky.
  11. I don't change it either. Like Talltayl I sometimes have to add a splash to slow things down.
  12. I have looked at Fountain of Youth numerous times over the years but have yet to purchase it. I need to put in an order, maybe I'll add a bottle to it when I do. Though I make soap, B&B not candles.
  13. I hope they are replacing it for you or some kind of compensation. You shouldn't have to strain it.
