  • Nerdy Farm Wife recipes are created for the casual home hobbyist and are not designed with commercial use in mind.

You alone are responsible for product and recipe testing to ensure compatibility and safety for the market. Also, please do not imply that The Nerdy Farm Wife has made or endorsed the product, or use any Nerdy Farm Wife images in your marketing. Check out our article, Selling Handmade Products (FAQS) for more on the subject and best of luck with your business adventures! :) 


  • Please read through the article: What’s Wrong With My Soap? {troubleshooting cold process soap problems} for an extensive list of reasons and solutions for 30+ common cold process soap problems.
  • If that post doesn’t answer your questions, and the recipe is a Nerdy Farm Wife recipe, please send more information through the Contact form below. If it’s not a Nerdy Farm Wife recipe, please ask the original recipe creator for their assistance.
  • Soapmaking is not a get-rich-quick business model. My best advice for new soapmakers is to invest a lot of time into learning the intricacies of soapmaking and making lot and lots of soap for practice. Once you have a strong history of successful batches under your belt, then I suggest exploring the business resources at Modern Soapmaking to get you started in the right direction.  I also have an article on Selling Handmade Products.
  • Yes, you can usually exactly double the recipe as long as you don’t change the types of oils used. In theory, if you use the same ratio of oil to lye, you should get the same results, but little differences can add up! This is more of an issue when you halve a recipe, but to double check the accuracy any time you make changes, it’s good to use a lye calculator to make sure.
  • We recommend using Soapee: or the calculator at Majestic Mountain Sage which is very user friendly:
  • Lye calculators like Soapee have a default water setting of “38% water as % of oils”. Nerdy Farm Wife recipes are usually around 2.1 to 1 water to lye ratio, or closer to 29 to 33% water as % of oils, and usually have a superfat of 5 to 6%.
