    Soap smelling like frying oil

    My lavender soap smell a bit of frying oil, though the coconut oil was melted "au bain marie"/hot water. Maybe it took on the smell of the olive and coconut oil I moved them to the cellar.

    First soap results

    Hello everyone! I did my first soap this Saturday, and it seems to be going well with the curing process so far. We did a simple Marseille soap, 70% olive and 30% coco oil, and cold process. We did everything outside to make sure the fumes wouldn't be bothersome. The "soap batter" was put in...

    First soap this saturday

    Thanks for your feedback ! I found a recipe very similar to yours that looks easy enough^^ as for the temperature, as I am doing cold process, I will just make sure that everything is at room temperature before starting.

    I will be doing a cold process and I understand that temperatures are quite important in that case ^^ but I guess a simple one would work for the first time :) thanks for the advice !

    Rice oil or Rice bran oil. What's the difference?

    Thanks to all for your answers! I have finally found that it's apparently made out of rice bran oil after hours of research. But I will still make sure again at the shop to be absolutely sure. Buying the first oils isn't easy ^^' Thanks again for answering my rather stupid question :oops:
