What can you ask me or e-mail me?
Ask me about ingredients, ask me about oils and butters and esters and hydrolyzed proteins and everything else under the sun. But please read the post on the topic on the blog. (I can tell if you haven't when you ask me what a hydrolyzed protein is!) Look to the right for categories and lists. Do a quick search.
Yeah, I'm busy, but I have time for your questions and thoughts, too! That's why I'm busy!
If you own a business, feel free to ask any questions you like, along with your thoughts and joyous moments, but please don't ask me to create a recipe for you that you might sell. You can ask me anything you want, but please don't ask me to make you a brand new recipe. I will help you modify recipes or work on something that has you stuck, but I figure if you know enough to sell your products, you know enough to create them from scratch.
If you are a non-selling person, again, feel free to ask any questions or share your thoughts and happiness, don't ask me to create a recipe for you unless it's something you can't find on the blog. If you want a body butter, there is one on the blog that will work for you. If you want an anti-chafing bar, I know that's not there. Please do a search - a decent one, maybe five minutes long - before asking me to create something that's already here.
If you're thinking about duplicating a product, send me the entire ingredient list and what you've tried so far. I won't just duplicate something for you as I stopped doing that a few years ago, but I can help you tweak something if you send me all of the things you've tried and your process.
I cannot stress enough how much I welcome e-mail and comments from you, my magnificent readers. You are the reason I am here, my inspiration and my joy, and I encourage you to share what you're doing in the world of bath and body products with me so I can, in turn, be encouraged to continue!
I'm writing this post in response to a few people lately who have asked if it's okay to ask me about this or that. I'm afraid I'm coming off as an extra-busy, over-scheduled tyrant who will only deign to answer questions of this or that nature. I don't mean it that way. I just get the same questions over and over again - can you create this recipe for me? what is this ingredient? what happened with me product (with no recipe or process) - that I have to be hardcore when explaining what I can and can't do. I'm here to help and rejoice, so let me do that...just give me a few days after you write!
