Soap traced super fast??
I'm really new at soaping but just can't stop. I just this minute attempted the salt scrub soap recipe on this wonderful site.
I changed olive oil for the grapeseed ( which I didn't have) and recalculated the lye.
I put the lye solution into my oils, took a stick blender to it and in 5 seconds it was tracing zoom!! I got all my additives into it quick and shoved into my mold. Is this because of the high coconut oil 70%?? Answer:
It's been a while since I made this one but I don't believe it traced as fast as yours did.
What temperature did you mix the lye solution and the oil solution together? I suggest around 90 degrees F.
Maybe next time use a whisk to start and then use the stick blender if it is taking too long.
