Ok so I used the following oils
Castor
Coconut
Crisco
Olive
left default setting on soapcalc. used hot lye solution to melt oils and then sb and hand stirred to trace.....
poured into mold and now almost three hours later it still has not gelled... Do you think it will be ok? I did not use any fo or color because I want this for my dry face.....
Also the lye was 2oz and water 6oz
Thanks in advance for your help.

If you can post your exact recipe with all measurements, we can be of more help.

I'm not familiar with using the lye mixture to meld your oils. I always measure & melt my oils while the lye/water solution is cooling down.
