just curious, does anyone else make their own soap? I just made a batch (cold process) this morning to try out a new scent combination . . . mmmmm . . . yummy!!

Ugh, though. I am so disgusted. I worked for a natural skin care company for 3 years (I quit in disgust for many reasons) and O.M.G. I just went onto their website to see what they've raised their prices to . . . $8 for ONE bar of soap???? C'mon, that's ridiculous!!! And that's the cheapest one! The most expensive is $10. Seriously, I can make the SAME bar for about $0.50, and keep in mind although I buy in bulk, my cost is higher than theirs since I don't buy near the bulk ingredients they do. $8 for a bar of soap . . .

i don't make my own soap, but i usually buy handmade soap.
i love these soaps! Bubbly Seahorse Soap Company by bubblyseahorsesoap on Etsy, the lady that makes these soaps in on JM. (soaplady) i LOVE her lip balms too.
and when i was at a street fair this weekend i bought a handmade bar of soap that is scented with lavender and peppermint EO. it's funny i was sniffing all the soaps that this lady had laid out on a table and i could tell which were made with fragrance oils and which were made with essential oils because every time i would sniff one made with FO i would sneeze.

In my quest to be healthier, I replace the not-so-healthy things as I run out of them and I'm almost out of Bath and Body Works bath gel. I was wondering what to do next? I'll try to find those recipes. If someone else finds them, please bump them up for us.

hmmm . . . did the search and can't find it, just found that I had PM'd it to the then-current host who was supposed to add it to a sticky, but never did. I found a list of my recipes on another board so I'll just make a new post copying that
