Oooh i see it happening.!!!!!!!! I'm an ex- candlemaker (on hobby level) and now i feel the urge to get starting on soap making!
I'm trying to read all the site u guys recommended and it surely has endless info. However u lot are the experts so i shoot away.
I want to start with low cost, fun, "get me excited" soap making before i give out any serious money. Also noted that presently i live in Holland so pretty much everything has to be shipped over here which cost more than the things i would buy.
1.Is it possible to buy ordinary soap bars and melt them down? What are the better quality ones?
If i do that and add essential oils do i cover the soap smell? (i suppose i 'd need one which doesn't have astrong smell
2. I read in one of the threads that u can use non toxic crayons to colour them. I used to do that with my candles and i was sooooo happy with that because u didn't have to mess with it just chopped them up and melted them and u get an array of coloures too. It would be beutyful if it worked. BUT is it ok to have it on your face?
3. For scents i'd use essential oils- not the cheap ones.
4. Can i use baking tins (teflon
)? some posts says yes some advices against (what reasons i don't know).
Brrrrr. I can't wait hearing from U ALL! I have 1 week off work next week and i will float in bubbles!
Hopefully u can help. Thanks so much!
(I luv the internet-still amazes me) back in those candle making years i was so stranded just had to expriment (which is part of it) on my own.....
I love this forum!
