Hi Again!

My soap separated shortly after pouring. Will HP in a crock pot fix it? I haven't had a separation before and I am seeing different recommendations for how to handle it. Can anyone advise me?

My recipe was 30% PKO, 10%OO, 10% Castor oil, 50% Lard.

I used pre mixed lye solution with coconut milk to make up the rest of my liquid. I didn't heat my liquids but I did heat my oils to melt them. I couldn't find my thermometer so I don't know the exact temperature of the oils. It all mixed and traced beautifully. My soap was gorgeous when I poured it into the mold. The picture shows what I found just minutes later.

The FO was BB Bonsai.

Yes, you can pour it into a crockpot, that should bring it back together. I hate when that happens. Thankfully it doesn't happen often.

Here's how I turned out. It's not the same powdery blue that it would have been with CP but I think it's kind of cool this way too.
