    I do a TON of shopping for soap supplies online and eBates lets you get rebates at nearly every major online retailer, including Amazon, eBay, and Etsy. I literally save money just by opening up a tab in my browser via their link. I have already received a check from them within the first month so I just thought I would let you guys know about this since we soap makers and DIYers buy so much online! Plus, it's free! Yippee! :D

    Whenever Caleb and I travel, we try our best to stay in Airbnbs. It's WAY cheaper than getting hotels and are often more personalized, comfy, and unique. We literally have stayed in absolutely amazing, private homes for $35 a night! You can use the link below to get $40 travel credit when you sign up. :)

            I am definitely making a note to buy a bar of this one come December! I have ridiculously sensitive grumpy skin and don’t use any colors or fragrances on my skin if I don’t know exactly what is in it. Love the natural colorants and scents!

                    If I took a shot for every commercial I saw (mostly) cleverly placed in this video, I'd be wasted quite quickly. I admit, I don't drink often, and have sugar issues with alcohol, but still.

                    I know ppl gotta pay their bills, but of the YTers who "hit it big" and then get sponsored by multiple companies in a single video, well, sadly, the actual info in the video is terribly sparse and watered down. So sad. Cause I just can't continue to use my time where sponsorships are more important than content. How to Cake It. Blah. Graveyard Girl. Blah. And others. And now Royalty soaps? :'(

                              I am just going to say, this micas are naturally occurring minerals, all of the oxides used to color the micas are naturally occurring.

                                  You should check out restaurant suppliers for some of your supplies. May get better quality cheaper. Like for containers, emulsion blenders, scales.

                                            You know, If you turned the soap, so the toppings were against you not towards you, then any drag marks would curve towards the outside of the soap, instead of being dragged in towards the middle.

                                                          Katie, I always look up IFRA for every fragrance before I use it. Your quantities of oils are much higher than mine, but it seems you have more FO/ppo. Do you traditionally use more than 1%? I tend to use about 2% but have seen so many people using .5-1.0% that I'm wondering if I'm wasting my $$ with too much FO in my soaps!! EasternShoreSoap
