Hi Everyone!
I know almost everything except calendula turns brown in M&P, but
does this include dried orange & lemon peel like the kind bought at the market &
put into food?

Is there anything other than calendula & ground oatmeal that doesn't turn brown from oxidation?

Does grinding a pumice stone into a fine powder work? I don't want to wait to order it. :P

Thanks everyone,
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!
Spring is on its way! I hope ...

Orange & lemon peel will turn brown over time. Grinding pumice... I don't think you will get it fine enough and it will make the product very scratchy.

I don't know what you're making, but can you substitute finely ground cornmeal or fine white sand like for a sandbox? I've used that in a hand soap for the garden and it worked well. :P

I love fine ground pumice sand I got from WSP. My husband would not shower without a soap that I made mixing pumice sand in. I don't think you can personally grind it as fine as you can purchase from commercial store. It is cheap from WSP.
