Top Reasons to Attend a Soap Maker Gathering

What happens at a Soap Maker Gathering?

A soap maker gathering is normally a local or regional event for makers to meetup, learn new techniques, share ideas and get new supplies and ingredients. Watch this broadcast for an unboxing and discussion of my experience attending the Old Sage Apothecarian conference in Syracuse New York.

        LIVE Soap School I just got final pricing for the Mini Perfumery Kit and it should be up on our website (thesage.com) by the end of the week.

            Andee can any of the scents in the kit be used with candles or are they strictly bath and body

            LIVE Soap School All of our fragrances are safe for bath and body products as well as candles. Because there are so many different candle waxes on the market, we do not test for compatibility with candle waxes. That being said, we’ve found that if a fragrance is not immediately compatible with your preferred candle wax, a tiny addition of Stearic Acid helps make the fragrance and wax become friends.

            (Essential Oils generally fall into the same boat, but some are ones that I would not consider as safe for use in candles due to potential problems with either irritation of the eyes and mucosal membranes, or due to very low flash points.)

      Unfortunately the kit was only made available for attendees at the gathering.
