Thanks so much!
This really helped, I've been wondering what certain abbreviations were and the place in the FAQ section of the site only has so many.
Thanks so much for this thread! It drives me crazy when I don't know what an acronym or abbreviation means.

And I'm glad to know that LOOB isn't what I thought it was.

Now I can get started on this jojoba gel recipe I saw in some other thread.... Yay!
Ha! I'm a newbie perusing through and I was just talking to myself like, "wtf do all these acronyms stand for?!" That was helpful. Thanks!
