I'm sorry but what does riced mean?

An update, I've check with my fo supplier and cherry blossom is one of the fo not compatible with cp soap... sigh. I've bought a few others which are also incompatible. Not sure what else I can do with them...
This is making me nervous as the temp here reached 42 deg C already... it typically goes to 50 here in summer..

It is not the temperature that is affecting that soap. The fragrance oil is incompatible with soap making. That is the problem.

I, and many others, routinely heat up our soaps, either in the oven, or on a heating pad to ensure full gel. The oven temperature is roughly 50-77 deg C. Way warmer than your climate.

You might be able to use the fragrance oils for other projects, like; fragrance for laundry soap added after everything is mixed, salt scrubs, bath bombs, or room sprays. Maybe the fragrances might be good for hot process or if you decide to rebatch?

Added: and "wonky" is absolutely a perfect soaping term! I use it all the time!

Just make sure they are skin safe before using them in anything.

I get spots that look just like that when my FO rices and I can't beat it back into submission. The supplier said it's not compatible with CP so does that mean it's not skin safe or because it behaves so badly? I've got a few that are skin safe but not recommended for CP because they're so naughty so I can use them in HP, LS, lotion, etc safely.

ETA: If it's not skin safe that's really sad because you made a beautiful loaf of soap! If it's unusable you can grate it up, put it little mesh bags, then toss the bag into a drawer or hang in closet like a sachet.

I'm pretty sure they are skin safe as the supplier sells soaping supplies only but it's good to check with them again. Thanks for the suggestion on using them on other non cp products! Not a fan of hp cuz of bad experience though I'm trying to tackle bath bombs and balms soon.

Love the idea of putting them into sachets too. My hubby travels a lot for work so chucking some into his luggage may lighten up his mood!
