    When rebatching, can i combine 2-3 different batches together?

    Can I add several different soap batches which has different ingredients, EOs etc together and rebatch? I have 2-3 want-to-fix soap batches but the quantity isn't that much so I was wondering if I can mix those together and get a one big batch and don't have any problems. Thank you!

    Was worried about my lye clumping up on three batches I made a couple of days ago.

Maybe because the soap was still...
