Yes, yellow is normal...Accleration is normal with beeswax and honey. It keeps heat too. I dont over my soap when it contains these.pink-north said:Well I did it! I made the Oatmeal-honey soap today and it looks a little different. This was the first time that I used beeswax in my soap. I found that trace came rather quickly, is that normal :?? I used the stick blender for the first time as well and I think I like this tool (yes I am a little slow with these things )
I put some of the honey in the lye solution and I put some of it in at trace. I'm experimenting right now. I'll let you know how it turns out.
BTW when I was pouring it into my mold the soap was quite yellow. Is that normal? Before I ask that has anyone else used beeswax in their soap? What are the results you've experienced and any suggestions or advice for me?
