So recently I fell in love with Sweet Grape Fragrance Oil. It smells just like the bubble gum I used to enjoy as a kid (and occasionally as an adult…) and it makes me happy. It’s definitely a kid-approved fragrance and for that reason, I’m positive I’ll be whipping up a few more treats with… read more

If you have kids in the house, this scrub is sure to be a HUGE hit! It smells like grape bubblicious bubble gum and I’m in LOVE!

This recipe is a fun one. For me, it’s the first one that I’ve tried that incorporated fruit. After reading her book Natural Soapmaking, I gave this recipe by Marie Browning a try!

I really love the fragrance of coffee in- well, in just about anything. But a basic ‘cup of joe’ scent can sometimes be too predictable. With this recipe I made two mixtures using a dark roast as the liquid portion in one, and adding a sweet orange fragrance to the other, and blended them into… read more

Recipe: Man Soap (Bar Version)

So I began this quest for a less girly, more man-ish smelling soap with a whipped soft soap- that I totally ended up loving. The citrus basil fragrance oil really knocked it out of the park for me when it came to finding a fragrance that was a little more manly, but not the typical… read more

This soap is simply gorgeous. And easy.  Which makes it even prettier. Right? I mean, it basically resembles a fancy pastry that you’d find in some delicious French bakery while on a European holiday. Or at least that’s what I think… The process is so basic even the most novice soap maker will feel right… read more

So, it’s not a hard soap. But it’s not a soft soap. And it’s kind of a scrub, But not really. You follow me?? This mixture is really like a hybrid of all of the above. It’s awesome. It combines the smooth lather of a soap, with the benefits of dead sea salt, in a… read more

Hey Bulkers! I hope you’re all enjoying your summer as much as I am! The warm weather, bright sun, pool time and family gatherings….what’s not to love?

Using rebatch as a soap base is a wonderful way to get the look of cold processed soap without the work. No lye, no safety gear or goggles, shortened dry time…it’s a win-win situation. Basically, rebatch base is just cold processed soap melted down for reuse. So you get all of the features of cold… read more
