  1. Going on now thru 3/13, all 1 ozers are half off. $1.33 each. limit 1bottle per each scent
  2. Looks great! What scent and base did you use?
  3. I am in love with Aztecs sweater weather : A burst of fresh air tingles with mint as it opens this festive blend, Snow covered pine needles are sweetened with winter berries and laced with wood notes that lead to the velvet mossy undertone. Lingering sweetness of vanilla musk finishes the scent. The smell doesn't scream winter so I'm looking for a good year round name for it.
  4. the second sequence I think. https://www.candlesoylutions.com/thumbnail.asp?offset=0&deep=1&cid=23
  5. seems to me if you have more than 10K sales on etsy, you don't need any advertising.
  6. https://www.brambleberry.com/shop-by-product/ingredients/bases/soap/bulk-goat-milk-melt-and-pour-base---25-lbs-goat/V000515.html This is my go-to base.
  7. I like French vanilla latte from Aztec also. NG's cappuccino is good too.
  8. Black tux from NG is good. I also like Tuscan tobacco from AAA, mixed with a little bay rum from Aztec.
  9. I just did a little comparison shopping. I only need 4 items , soaping oils and lye. Even with BB's sale, my total cost was lower at NG. Including shipping...and I am on the west coast! Shipping from BB was $14, from NG was $19. So you can see how much lower each item was at NG. I love BB, but their prices have gotten so high. Just thought I'd throw this out there.
  10. I have put blends in the pour pot seconds before adding wax. I've also made preblends in bottles and stored them for months. I don't notice any difference in the finished product. The pre blended bottles are convenient tho.
  11. I think a dozen scents to choose from would be fine. Something tells me they would all be really good ones I would like the option of smaller bottles, I just don't go through the big ones fast enough. That way I could try 1/2 dozen 8 ozers instead of 3 - 1 lbers. , (or thereabouts.)
  12. If @TallTayl does a co-op, hers are the best!
  13. I have used RBO. I like to use equal amounts of rbo and oo. Probably very similar to the soapers choice blend. Less expensive and I have not noticed a difference compared to using just oo. Never tried OO pomace. Haven't run into any DOS (yet) either. I also use RBO in my lotions and it feels very nice. It does have a short shelf life tho.
