Do you have a soap recipe that is either too big or too small for a mold you may have?  And you do not know how to resize it to make it fit?  I found a video from Lovin' Soap called How to Resize o Soap Recipe..  I have not viewed this video yet because I did have a recipe that I needed adjusting. But I plan to view it soon.  So I can learn how to do so.

Buttered Popcorn Lip Scrub

I love the taste of butter popcorn from the movie theatre.  If you love the taste of butter popcorn like I do and using lip scrubs, then you should try this Butter Popcorn Lip Scrub from Wholesale Supplies Plus. Once you make this lip scrub, use it once or twice a week to keep your lips soft and smooth.  The butters and oils will keep your lips feeling moisturized long after you use it.

Raspberry Jam Bubbling Bath Truffle

If I had to choose my favorite jam, it would be raspberry. Brambleberry has a new fragrance oil called Raspberry Jam which The Soap Queen says that would be perfect for a bath bomb recipe since it is sweet, fruity and a completely delicious scent.  So they created a Raspberry Jam Bath Truffles that are part bath bomb, part bubble bar and part bath truffle.  So this bath truffle would be a party favor.  Just to let you know that this is an intermediate level project.  In this recipe, they added more butter and oil, as well as more polysorbate 80 to help emulsify it.  This means that the dough was a little bit softer which means that the bars do not crumble when cut.  But they are a bit more tricky to shape.  They suggest that if you gently shape each bar with your hand, it will help prevent a flat truffle.
