ahhhhh...I thought basic recipes were already caculated for you?????

so it is to see how my lye to add?

so if i wanted to add two oz of olive oil i would type that in????

sorry I have nooo clue..I am a candle maker looking into a whole new world!

I love handmade soaps I always have!!! But i am not sure I understand how to start...M&P was easy...My soaps turned out good! But I want to make some from scratch...I don't want to use lard.. just all veggie oils.....

I think I am missing a big part of understanding...In candlemaking we follow recipe every thing is right to the oz.. by weight....

ahhhhh

Thanks for the help! I truly dooo Appriciate it!

It is the same in soaping, except we follow the recipe to the 10th of an ounce. It is way more precise.

If you find a recipe you like, enter it into the lye calc at the sage then add those 2oz of another oil. It will change the amount of lye and water needed.
