*Comments have been disabled on this video. It is mind boggling the amount of people commenting about lye safety that have never made soap (admittedly so) and are obnoxiously giving advice about it. This is only going to lead to confusion for the new soapmaker and causes me concern for the improper information being shared. I don’t have the time and energy to continue to moderate the comments on this video. It is your responsibility to research what materials are safe for a lye solution. It is all up to you. For now, I will believe the scientists (chemists and physicists) that tell me that the only safe materials are stainless steel and scientific plastic. (Polypropylene #5 has been said to be safe. Since this video I have decided to only use scientific plastic.) Lye etches glass causing weak spots. Again, do your own research because YOU are responsible for YOU.
Hello coffee! I don’t know about you but I love coffee. Using coffee in soap is so fun too! This soap is made using coffee from Black Lab Coffee in Republic, Missouri! We’re going to give this soap another few weeks to cure. Look for it mid-march!

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.
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? 🙂
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 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.
