    What fragrance oil did you use and who supplies it? Aside from that, we've all left something out of our soaps at some point. I had to rebatch too recently and before that, I remember forgetting sodium lactate

    P and J Trading Co is supplier. Magnolia scent.

    Oh yah and I forgot to add the sugar to the aloe gel BEFORE I added lye. Another boo boo. That took a LONG time to dissolve. Actually had to put it in a hot water bath. Oops... Sigh... Live. Learn.

    I would be concerned they are not formulated for CP soap. If this is the third one you've used from this company. We've all made errors in adding stuff.

    @shunt2011 That site looks promising but I think I agree. That scent might be better for MP. They did not have specific info for CP, from what I saw for that scent but they said it can be used for candles and soap.

    I used to leave the FO out all the time. Now I lay out all the additives in a row at the back of the bench before I start which works for me. You might need some sort of system that works for you. Even having the recipe in front of me doesn’t work for me because I think I know better. :rolleyes::(

    I add mine to my oils. Haven't forgotten since I started this. The only time I don't is if it's a bit of a mover and will then stir it in individually as I usually use at least two colors.

    I used other oils from them without issue. And really liked the results in my other soaps. This was a bit of a surprise! This was the 1st acceleration with this brand.
    Had it on a cheap Walmart oil and another fragrance oil from.??? Mental block on company but it was Irish Spring scent.
    So! Maybe have a Crock-Pot on standby next time I soap? Probably a good idea! I just smashed and mushed it in the mold! Not pretty!
    Rustic and will still live up to it's duty!
