    Trouble: Cracking and oil leaking

    NG Fresh Cut Roses - single bars with swirl

I soaped at a lower temperature, made sure to add in extra liquid to the unscented bowl to equal what the colored bowls were getting (I dispersed mica in 1oz water) I also took this water from the recipe (adding less with the...

    DOS

    So not when you mix in florals and get an orange ora in the soap around each dried blossom (lavender for ex)? How long does it take curing for DOS to appear if its going to happen?

    Trouble: Cracking and oil leaking

    I used Brambleberry's Green Tea Fragrance Oil and Kermit Green Mica in this recipe. I also infuzed the olive oil with green tea, and used my normal Goats Milk. I do sell at our local small town farmers market even though I'm new. Thats the reason for the 5lb batch. Since its the same recipe as...

    Trouble: Cracking and oil leaking

    Yes I'm using Bb's fragrance calc. I use the medium usage ammount. Thanks for the other resources! I was looking for a more detailed soap calc. Nope, I've had batches from all fragrance and essential oil companies I use fail. This is definitely a case of user error :)
