    I'm a busy wife and mom of 4. I work full time as an RN and run my hobby business in my free time (ha ha whats that?)
    I've been making soap since 2004 and love it as much today as I did in the beginning. I have an unhealthy relationship with wax. I'll just leave it at that.

    I love anything related to soap making or bath and body production. I love candles, tarts and anything that smells yummy!

  1. Welcome! Candle making definitely has a learning curve. But as long as you’re willing to do the work, it can be rewarding. Tons of info here to help you.
  2. I really loved Southern Garden Scents! I had no idea they were now Pure Fragrance oils! I have looked at their oils before because they had MW dupes, but have never bought anything. *Off to take another look*
  3. I just saw the big header “Sweet Strawberry”. I see now it’s Flaming.
  4. I agree with @MilosCandles. Every email like this I’ve received has been suspect. I don’t have a website anymore, but when I did, it was very “small potatoes”, the idea that some store in Asia wanted to carry my items set off alarm bells big time. Emails like this (which I still receive from time to time without an internet presence) go straight in the trash.
  5. You would do a blend of container soy and pillar soy.
  6. I love Safiya's videos. Have y'all seen the one where she melted down one of all the lipsticks that Sephora had? I'm not a huge fan of YouTube personalities, but if I had to watch one, it would be her.
  7. Welcome! There is a wealth of information here and lots of helpful folks.
  8. Yep, those are the ones. I have round and elliptical in varying ounces, so I can make different shapes and sizes.
  9. When I packaged my bars in tins I've set them on wax paper before. Now I pour directly into souffle cups. Voila! Molds and packaging in one.
  10. You could also use a "low sweat" M&P base. That's what I switched to. I didn't like using the plastic wrap or shrink wrap or bags either. The low sweat bases work really well and I can package in a box or with a band.
  11. If I don't like something on its own, I may be able to use it in a "limited time" blend. If it's just a straight up dud, it gets pitched. I don't want to keep moving it around or forgetting that it sucked, so I just get rid of it.
  12. Artfire. Wow, I didn't realize that was still a thing. I wonder if my store is still there after sitting idle for 13 years? 😂
