What type of soap are you wanting to make?  The melt and pour types, or handmade soap where saponification is involved?

Maybe you could try experimenting with their ingredients list.  They don't list the specific amounts but they do say what scents are in each one.  Example:

http://usa.lush.com/cgi-bin/lushdb/443

"Ingredients: Sweet Violet Leaf Infusion (Viola Odorata), Propylene Glycol, Sodium Palm Kernelate, Perfume, Sodium Stearate, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Titanium Dioxide, Cananga Oil (Cananga odorata), Violet Leaf Absolute (Viola odorata), Cedarwood Oil (Cedrus atlantica), Sodium Chloride, Glycerine, EDTA, Tetrasodium Editronate, Isoeugenol, D&C Red No. 33, FD&C Blue No. 1, "

You could probably skip the Blue No. 1.  Wink

Do you want a specific fragrance?
Their stuff is not as natural as they would want you to believe, they do have essential oils and natural ingrediants but the strong scents are all artificial and really hard to duplicate unless you have a chemistry set.

I have reproduced a couple of their products, one called (I think)
"angels on bare skin" is just ground almonds, glycerin (not soap), natural clay and lavender essential oil, truly all natural and it's a great product!

I've recently bought "the bath gourmet" book because I was interested in making bath bombs and bath melts like Lush. I love thier stuff, but it can get expensive to use regularly...  the book mentions to use essential fragrances instead of essential oil....

have you made anything lushy yet?? I"m about to try something on my own as well.

Is a recipe for the Lush Bath Jelly. I almost bought some when I was at Lush last month but backed off on it. I was excited when I found this recipe. I've been meaning to try it but havn't gotten around to it yet. The person who runs it is a craftster (sorry I forget your name Smiley )
