I know they look like mouse poop, but I still love them, lolI add everything to my oils except confetti or salt for a salt soap because I prefer all my ingredients to be well mixed in.
Lavender Buds turn brown in soap and look like mouse poop. Sorry.
Ok that makes sence to me.The only thing that makes a big difference would be the fragrance depending on how it behaves. I actually prefer to add clays, milks to my oils beforehand to make sure they are well incorporated. I wouldn't add lavender flowers before stick blending, but also, I don't really add flowers to my soaps.
I only use Essential Oils, the oils are the thing I know LOTS about, but sometimes in soap they can react unexpected.Ditto what Megan said. I also prefer to add clays and milks, etc... to my oils before adding the lye. The only thing that can be tricky is the fragrance oil. I can add certain FOs up front to my oils, but others are a disaster if I do. You have to know your fragrance oil.
I think it is tricky to add things at trace incase they don’t incorporate properly. I don’t do it.I know they look like mouse poop, but I still love them, lol
Thx for your answer. So it doesn't really matter if I throw everything in at trace instead of in the oils?
