But the recipe *is* on my site. As i posted only a few hours ago, it is

Read all the way to the bottom of the page to find it. Two formulae for
Florida water and three for Kananga water are given there. To make
Florida Water Soap, you just follow any standard soap recipe and scent
it with the same essential oils that go into Florida water, minus the
alcohol and water that are used as a cologne base.

I love the net because it brings us all closer together.

You got *that* right! I did make my own for several years and enjoyed
doing so, but it's like making pasta specilties such as tortellini --
you can buy it cheaer than you can make it.

Thanks. I have three books before the public right now -- The Lucky W
Amulet Archive, Hoodoo in Theory and Practice, and Hoodoo Herb and Root
Magic. The first two are online books in first-draft format and are
added to and edited on a regular basis. The third book is available as
a  printed book only and appears on the web merely in the form of short
extracts. I have just begun another book as well, and will announce it
when it is ready for the presses.
