Thanks so much for the Aussie soap supplies link Nay. I had been looking for zinc oxide powder, as I have a baby on the way and love to use it on their bottoms, but all the ones in stores have a talc base. I only found suppliers who sold it in 25kg to 1 ton lots until now.

Welcome Mashley.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Your welcome Mashley - I think I got the link off someone else on here - maybe Quirky Jo. Welcome to forum and all the best with bub.  ;)

I put the Aussie Soaps link up a while ago for someone looking for Virgin Coconut Oil. They're my favourite distributors and have some good recipes on the site as well.

Still don't think I'd go for a Lotion Bar, a bit too greasy for me I think. That said, I've never tried one, so perhaps I'll have to make one and see.
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

Oh KJH - I'm loving mine!! Insted of using a cream as body moisturiser you make up this mix that sets like a cake of soap then when needed you rub all over - on contact with body it warms and melts just enough to distribute a layer of shea butter & coconut oil onto your body. Try it!  ;)

if you were in a really hot/humid climate would it just melt on it's own???

If very hot, they have to be kept in a cool place or in the fridge. If making them for use in summer, it's suggested reformulating and using more hard butters or beeswax to make a firmer bar.
