I think they're confusing anyway Smiley

Maybe esmerelda could post a small intro to ongoing swap rules/workings so things might go a bit smoother?

edit-
remembered she did put up a small info thing..
Maybe when the swapper gets approved we could send along the rules/workings of the swap

wouldn't it be an option to perhaps add a button to 'unsubscribe to a topic you posted in'?

Yeah, it would be a great feature!  (in my opinion, hehe!)  I think we have discussed it previously, but it wasn't available to us with the coding & features.

That would seriously be the only thing that I would change about craftster! And it's not possible  Cheesy

Maybe some day..  Roll Eyes

Not to find bramble berry in Holland  Wink

I tried to google it, think it's benzoin

this is what I've found:

Uses - Benzoin oil is helpful for treating asthma, bronchitis, colds & flu, soothing sore throats & treating arthritis, & rheumatism. Not strictly an essential oil but a Resinoid, produced from the resin using solvents like alcohol and benzene, which are removed and the result is dissolved in ethyl glycol or similar. The antiseptic properties are good for cuts, chapped, inflamed or irritated skin conditions. It acts as a carminative when taken internally is rapidly absorbed, and mildly expectorant diuretic and antiseptic to the urinary passages. In the form of Compound Tincture of Benzoin, it is used as an inhalant with steam in laryngitis and bronchitis. It is a preservative of fats, and is often used for that purpose.

Cautions - Has been known to cause allergic reactions, perform a skin test before use.
-dilute before use.



Hmm Allergic reactions thing... not so good
It doesn't say anything about conserving anything other than fats.. hmm, I think it's getting there, but not just yet   Smiley

no, Ive seen recipies calling for mushed cucumber..  Undecided

And the dried oranges.. won't they get wet when the soap gets used? And that might then result in mould or other ickyness?

Now I've been thinking about making soap for christmas this year and have been looking for some soap idea's around the place and there's just one thing that is confusing the hell out of me:

If you would use fruit/vegetables in soap, won't it rot?

I mean, avocado or cucumber soap would go very rancid, right? and even orange rind soap.. stuff like that.

So, is there something I'm missing? Does soap act as a preservative or is there something you can/have to add to make sure the soap can last longer than a week out of the fridge  Wink?

I just found out that sending a package between 500gr and 2 kilo costs the same anyway, so would this be a problem? (sending more, could be something we fix between partners??)
