I have made soap on and off for years, I do hot and cold process lye soaps. I usw to like making it a lot, but have been lazy and haven't made any in a while.

I have done m&p on and off. I would like to do the the lye soap but the lye factor rather scares me. I can be a bit of a klutz in situations calling for extreme care which is why I am scared of using the lye.

Right now I am making some lavender m&p soap using lavender buds harvested from my garden.

I've been making soap using the melt and pour method for over five years. I really enjoy experimenting with scents and colorants. I make them primarily for myself and as gifts for my friends and family. My mom loved the jasmine and vanilla soap I gave her for her b-day. I've also sold some of my soap, but I really think I'd like to teach people how to make soap.

I like recycling soap. Taking hotel soap and little clumps, and adding coconut oil and scents. It's nice.

How do you do this?

OMG I just got my M & P soap supplies in February I haven't been able to use them yet. I'm so excited.

I plan at some point to be brave enough to use the lye and create my own(CP then eventually HP), but I want to start out with baby steps.

I'm so excited, I've wanted to do this since last June.

I don't make soap but We like to buy soaps that people make here in portland there are quite a few people that make it. what we are after besides a cool smell is a soap that takes care of dry skin. I discovered a simple test to know right away how well a soap does the job. When you use it and your skin is still wet the stickier or tackier your skin feels right after you wash the better the soap does to lube you skin.

Not soap but along those same lines I have been trying to make bath fizzeez and shower steamers. They are trickier than one would suspect.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.

      I have a chance to undergo esketamine treatment for depression.  If any FJers have any thoughts, I’d appreciate them.
