How to identify a hippy ?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

cold press coconut oil is very expensive...
Yeah, tell me about it, especially when you're buying premium known brands to build your brand. Still, it's worth it in the end.

haha, was just thinking about dr bronner's
do you know it stroppychops?
it started asa religious fundraiser and is a global hit for 30 years, thanks to the quality.
oddly, it was popularised by hippies and surfers.
it is a potassium soft/liquid soap vs the sodium hard soaps we normally use
i think they glycerine process it to make it transparent.
No, I don't know it. I hear a lot about the green big-bars in South Africa from which you'd cut the length you wanted, but this is a new one. As a soft soap it's probably made with potassium hydroxide instead of sodium hydroxide (caustic soda) used in cold process soap. We plan to move into soft soaps as we get loads of requests, but struggle to find a good chemical supplier here.
soap is fun and practical to make.
i lked using essential oils.
made one very popular type wit cocoa and spearmint eo
just like an after dinner mint and plenty of tingle from the slightly irritant spearmint oil
Sounds good, but I'm willing to bet the tingle you speak of is from unconverted caustic soda from an unbalanced recipe! Our soaps are balanced to the half-gram per recipe (science, brothers!) and the truth test of when a handmade soap is cured is that it no longer buzzes your tongue like a 9v battery when you lick it. I imagine the after dinner mints would give a kick!

Unrelated, I see the auto-smiley for tongue there, can this be turned off individually as it's as annoying as crap.

Thank god it's not on for curse-words. :)
