I make pet shampoo bars. Ive been making the same recipe a few times now with no issues. One in particular Neem oil with diatomaceous earth. I made this one the other day. It turned almost a shade of orange, more orange than before, but i also used a different supplier for the neem oil, and when i cut it, it was harder than normal, almost couldnt cut through the log, it was only a couple hours past 24 hours. The bars look and feel as though they have been cured for 3 weeks or more. I also noticed they semmed to have shrunk a little i the mould. The only things i did different is use a different neem oil supplier so maybe this could explain the color difference, i made the lye water a couple days in advance, but ive read thats ok to do. As well it doesnt really smell like lemon grass, which is the essential oil i used, it smells kinda weird. Not sure if their good to use or not. Any ideas? Thanks. Another thing out of the ordinary I noticed is that when I added the lye solution it traced almost immediately, like thick in under a minute..
