Hi Leslie moomoo! Technically, soap can't be made without lye. Soap, by definition, is the result of a chemical reaction between some kind of oil and lye. Lye is a solution made with either sodium hydroxide (to make bar soap) or potassium hydroxide (to make liquid soap). The reaction is called saponification.  However, there is no lye in the finished soap. The lye gets used up during saponification. The chemical reaction transforms the oil and lye into soap. You can read more in the Where's the Lye post: http://www.soapqueen.com/bath-and-body-tutorials/cold-process-soap/wheres-the-lye-2/ If you don't feel comfortable handling lye, you will love melt and pour soapmaking! Melt and pour has already saponified, meaning you're not handling lye. =) Read more in the Beginning Soaper Resource Roundup: http://www.soapqueen.com/bramble-berry-news/beginning-soaper-resource-roundup/

The melt and pour base contains palm oil which is absolutely destroying forests and habitats due to the palm farming industry. Do you ever plan to stop using palm oil?

Hi Ariana! You can use any essential oil you like in soap! It depends on what smells you like. You can use our Fragrance Calculator to find out exactly how much to add: http://www.brambleberry.com/Pages/Fragrance-Calculator.aspx Also, you can find our full selection of essential oils here: http://www.brambleberry.com/All-Oils-C23.aspx

im sure that this soap is nice but one thing. but if its organic its not soap and vice versa.  I don't know what is in the melt and pour base but if its soap then the oils in it could be organic but soap isn't just oil.  for it to be soap the oils have to react with a catalyst called lye, which is sodium hydroxide.  If this product is indeed soap it has been made with lye, otherwise its not soap.  it could be a soap like substance if they used some sort of other substance to catalyze, but if they did in fact use lye, its not completely organic.

I love your soap recipes, but i don't like the idea of using a microwave for melting the soap.  Its contradicting the whole concept of removing "toxins" out of our body.  It also sends a wrong msg to people.  Most of these ingredients are expensive and is a waste if melting it the wrong way.  Eco-friendly isn't using a microwave anyway.  Why not just spend the extra time a double boil the soap! just a thought!
