Why doesn’t your video have a recipe and supply list? This video is not a tutorial.
How do I get started in soapmaking? I would recommend starting by arming yourself with knowledge. Educate and then experiment. Be sure to follow all proper safety precautions. A great starting place is the beginner cold process soapmaking series by SoapQueenTV here on YouTube. You can then purchase all the supplies you need at Bramble Berry. Lovin Soap Studio also has a beginner series on YouTube.
Why don't you share your cold process soap recipe? Our recipe is proprietary. We can't give away all our secrets now can we? :-) I did share a test recipe on our four Bramble Berry Seascape Collection Series videos.
Where do you buy your oils? We purchase our oils in bulk at Soapers Choice, Jedwards International, or Bramble Berry.
Where did you buy your molds? My husband builds all my wood molds. My silicone molds are from various suppliers.
Where did you buy your soap planer? My husband built the soap planer for me.
Where did you buy your soap cutter? We purchased our soap cutter at Bud’s Woodshop.
Where did you buy your soap loaf splitter? Our loaf splitter was purchased from Smith Creek Studio.
Where do you buy your soaping containers? My pitchers are from School Masters and my large plastic containers are from Webstaurant Store.
Where do you buy your fragrance oils? We purchase our oils from many different suppliers. We don’t have a one-stop-shop for all of our oils. We blend the majority of the fragrances we work with.
Where do you buy your colors? We buy our colors at Bramble Berry and Nurture Soap.
Where do you buy your coconut milk? I was buying So Delicious Organic Coconut Milk on Amazon but I think you all bought them out! Ha! I now buy Native Forest Organic Coconut Milk. Please don't buy them out. I need coconut milk. lol
Where do you buy your packaging materials? We buy our packaging materials at various suppliers including Paper Mart, ULine, Nashville Wraps, and Amazon.
Why don’t you always provide exact links for supplies? I think providing where I purchased something is good enough. I encourage you to research. We have the internet at our finger tips…use it! Maybe that’s the mom in me, encouraging you to be self-sufficient. Plus, links change and then the information is no longer valid.
Do you give classes? No, I do not offer classes. However, if you need help, leave me a comment and I’ll see what I can do.
Can I stop by and meet you? Well...I consider myself a really nice person, but I am an introvert, and meeting strangers (even soapmakers) is way out of my comfort zone. I think you're awesome...I just am not that type of person.
