I got the paper in my mail box telling me they have a package for me. I have to wait after one tomorrow to go get it. That's way too long! That's it, I'm staying home from now on, I'll always be there if there's a swap delivery!  Wink I can't wait to get my soaps!

Yay! I'm excited for you to get them!

I really don't know what the thickness is of the bags. They are sturdy but not super thick. Sorry I can't be more specific! As long as you don't boil the soap or get it too hot it should be ok.

Coconut oil doesn't smell like coconut unfortunately! Your formula might be a bit greasy, but if your hair is dry maybe that's a good thing! Please let us know how it turns out! I just made my first shampoo bar and am impatiently waiting for it to cure, and I've had some potassium hydroxide for ever to make liquid soap for shampoo  Cheesy

You should probably use a preservative, but if you make a small batch and keep it in the fridge it might be ok for personal use for a few weeks. What kind of recipe do you have? I'm kind of intrigued by the idea of adding coconut oil to the mix, what's the rhyme and reason?
10269  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Where can i find? on: November 03, 2008 09:40:26 PM
How come you don't want to buy online? A lot of those things are going to be hard to get and a lot more expensive to try and find locally, just FYI.

You can get epsom salts from a pharmacy (walgreens, etc) or from a regular store (walmart, etc) in the health and beauty section.

If you have a grocery store that sells a lot of bulk items, you might be able to find sea salts locally.

You can find melt and pour soap at a craft store, but it's probably going to be very expensive and poor quality. If you want anybody to actually use the soaps, steer clear of the brand Life of the Party, it is hideous and expensive compared to buying online. You can also get colorants and maybe fragrance oils at the craft store, again very expensive and poor quality. You want liquid colorants for melt and pour soap.

You can probably find essential oils at a health food store, but it is a major rip-off, you can get half an ounce of an essential oil for about as much money as you can get 8 ounces from a good online supplier.

It's possible to find beeswax from a local beekeeper or perhaps at Farmer's Markets.

Shealoe butter is not very common, I can't think of any place you could get it locally, however you might want to check and you might have a soap supplier local to you. Same with the jojoba beads.

Hope that helps a little!

I have a question before I send in my questionaire.

I'm a November baby and was wanting to know if I had to claim at the same time I post my list. My guess is no but I wanted to be sure.

I have no problems in claiming before the end of the month I just have to finish up 2 swaps this week and don't want to claim until I'm certain I have enough time in the 2 week time frame to get stuff out.

You can claim after you post your list, you just have to make 1 claim sometime during the month.  Smiley
