Coming Right Up!

Have you been wondering what the next issue of the Saponifier will bring?  Here’s a bit of what you have to look forward to:


Education is the theme, and we offer it in spades.  We’ll be offering summer recipes and ideas that you can incorporate into your fair weather sales and activities.  For some of you, this information is none too early.  For others of you, well, let’s just say that you’ll have time to decide what to make and get your supplies before summer plants itself in your town.


We’ll also provide an open source scientist for your learning pleasure, as well as the list of books that you must have.   Want to make a career of your craft?  We’ll have help for that, also.


If that’s not enough, do you know anything about the Glacier Lily (Erythronium grandiflorum)?  If not, you soon will by reading the herb monograph!


And soap scum:  is it one of those things you simply have to put up with when it comes to handcrafted soap, or is it just a bit of bad PR?  Read and find out.


Finally, is everything you’ve been taught about soapmaking oils true?  Which oils produce a hard bar, soft bar, a lathering bar,or  a white bar?  A Single Soap Oil Swap was conducted to prove or disprove everything we’ve been taught about oils, and I can only say that I think you’ll be surprised at some of the findings; but, you’ll have to wait until March 1st to find out!


Is your appetite whetted?  Good.  Be sure to download and read your issue on Thursday and then tell us what you think.


Until next time, may your days be filled with bubbles and wax.
