my lye solution and oils separated, what do i do now?
I have a bowl of stuff, thick stuff topped with oils that smell like lavender and vanilla. What am I supposed to do with that stuff?
I would try to hot process what you have. The scent will likely evaporate somewhat but you should be able to save the batch.
Basically cook the soap on low, stirring often until it reaches the gel stage. By then the liquid oils should have incorporated. Scoop into your soap mold and cool.
