Well it was expected at some point. I had decided to do the polka dot thing in a loaf pan using squeeze bottles. Well we have our first pencil line soap instead. I used rose essential oil and BAM! Instant acceleration with a hint of rice! So we did a 3 layer with 2 pencil lines of activated charcoal. And first layer I had an oops POOF of charcoal! Desire to go buy a new loaf mold is real. Just so I can try again! Chalk this up to learning!
