I used a recipe from another soap maker for my first batch. It has been over an hour and the soap still has not come to a trace and looks like a soup. It is olive oil-based and I know these types of soap can take longer to trace. What can I do to help get it to a trace? Is there anything I can do if it does not?

Did you use a soap calculator to check the recipe? Sometimes there are typos. It will be easier to help if you post your recipe with the wt of each oil, wt of lye and wt of water you used.

Also, are you stick blending or hand mixing? Hand mixing can take hours.
