Weight of Oils
I am very new to the Cold Process Soap Making. I've yet to try my first batch, as I am intimidated, however I have all the supplies.
I found a really simple Lye Calculator, however is asks if I a measuring my oils my percentage (which I am, as it's easier for me). Once I click that option, I am asked "What Will The Oils In Your Finished Product Weigh?"
I don't know how to answer this. If I am using a 1 Pound Mold, is my answer to that question 16 Ounces? Or is it something different so I can account for the lye water solution? This conundrum is what is scaring me off of trying....but I am so excited to start!
Could you post the address of the lye calculator you are using. That way I can take a look at it and be more able to answer your question.
