11  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Body butter scent and preservative question on: December 06, 2009 06:14:45 AM
I've been thinking of making my Mom this for Christmas https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=181837.0 and I was wondering if the scent from the oils would be enough or if I should use an EO to scent it.

Some people put preservatives into their creams and stuff, will I need to in this?

Also, I'd like to buy my oils in a shop rather than online, so does anyone know where in Manchester I can buy things like this without spending my life savings in Holland and Barrett?

I have no idea what it was made from, I just bought it from tesco xD It was some non stick thing... What do you mean by unusable? as in not safe to use?

I just took the recipie and thought it would be fine, but I will make sure to run my future recipies through a lye calc Smiley next time also I will line my moulds with cling film because the baking trays I used have been stripped of their outer layer xD but my other plastic moulds seem fine.

I have my soaps resting on top of my wardrobe, are they okay in there? It is always really really cold in my bedroom so do they need heat or are they fine being cold?

After popping them in front of the fire they hardened up nicely, and I demoulded them today Smiley I shoulda left the smaller ones for longer but the bars were perfect.

It took me a long time to get a trace but I think thats cos I had it too hot for the recipie (they said add it in 110, I added at 140 because they were a smililar temperature)

Heres a link to the recipie:

I tried soap making for the first time yesterday, and 18 hours in from adding my soap to my moulds its still rather soft (as in gloopy, unable to demould). I left my moulds in the kitchin overnight with a towel over the top, but I dont think that it was enough to keep the heat in (it was really cold last night as well). I've popped them in front of the fireplace, will they still be able to harden?

Edit: I put cling film over the top to stop white stuff, could it stop my soap from hardening?

Thanks guys Smiley I'm glad I made this piece actually because I think it has inspired my friend to try jewellery making Grin

At first I just made the earrings a bit after my birthday because I got a new set of pliers (with sparkly handles Cheesy) and some other crafty stuff... But yesterday I felt like making something wire related, so I thought I should finally make a matching necklace for the earrings, and here they are.

For Aikibookworm: You join it into a circle by either just a slip stitch into the first chain you made, or maybe in this pattern you just do the double crochet into the first chain... But either way it will join it up and you just go round and round, and you don't have to turn or chain and join, just keep a stitch marker in the first stitch every round and then you will know where you are in the round Smiley

For joonsang: Looking at the pattern you just gotta keep going round until you have about 7 rounds Smiley What I find useful is to have a pad next to me and write down the number of rounds I have to do, and then cross them off when I've done that round so I'm not getting confused Smiley

Lastly, my questions xD...
What weight of yarn are you using? Is it worsted or something else?
Is a size H hook 5mm?

Thanks, catdaddytn and beefishie Smiley

I learned how to wrap pendants like that from this tutorial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJ34Isf0mDo. The shape of the gem is different so its a little different but its basically the same idea... and you don't need the pointy tool thing if you have nails or just some way of bending out the wire... Maybe the wire I use is quite soft... What I also find quite useful is when you're trying to get the wire to stay around the gem when you're closing it at the top is to just hammer it with the handle of some pliers and it will bend it into shape a bit about the gem.

I thought I put in what it was made of xD that was only on DA I guess though... The main stone is Amethyst, its about 3-4cm by 3.8cm and the smaller beeds are just purple seed beads...
