Hi all, I’m so new to soap making but really keen to learn. I’ve only made one batch so far, still curing, but it wasn’t anything like I was expecting. The lye didn’t get hot or fumy and it took so long to trace my blender burnt out. I’m planning to stick with cold process soap and practice like mad. I’m using coconut oil, olive oil and maybe lard. My question is how do I heat up the mixture to speed up trace once I’ve added the lye water to the oils? My water was stone cold- cool day, done outside but I’ve no where else to mix it. Can anyone advise? Thank you!
