It looks like partial gel or unevenly mixed in EO.
I'd add the EO with the oils, soap warmer and insulate the mold with a lid and a towel.

Hi earlene.. iím sorry.. i mean 27C/80F is the room temperature.. but for oils i always melt them first and mix them in more than 40C/105F..is it warm enough?

Hi penelopejane..do you think thatís the problem?well it could be because i just mix them and not stir them..i just shake them a minute..and add them at trace..i never try that method yet (add EO with oil).. because iím afraid the EO will evaporate,is that not?

I think you might have soaped too cool for the hard oils to stay melted and mixed in.

I think you let your mixture drop to that room temperature. Just keep it warm enough that the oils stay melted. Once you add the lye and stick blend, it will naturally go higher, just be sure to not let it sit and cool off.

You need to mix the EOs in thoroughly. Adding them to the oils means you will always do this. They will not evaporate at soap making temperatures.

If you melt your hard oils and add them to cold other oils you will get streaks in your soap or stearic spots. If you let the melted oils and cold oils sit for a while this might negate the problem.

If mixing the EOs with the oils solves your problem your soaping temps might be ok. If mixing your EOs with the oils doesn't solve the problems try soaping warmer around 100*F

Don't worry dear, "practice makes man perfect".
Now you have to take out the mass and do again by hot process at 50c to 55c. stir well but oil should not be come out. stir until when you will not get soap smell. Than mold it with glossy paper in acrylic mold. try it.

Susie and i are really saying the same thing even though she said - donít let the melted hard oils sit and cool off.

I said heat the hard oils and let them sit in the cooler oils so you get a bit of heat transfer and start the saponification process.
