So I wanted to make some soap for Christmas gifts for family so I started now so they could be ready in time, got green and red colors and started. I decided to use a whisk to keep it from getting too thick for swirls. Used 50% lard, 25% alvocado, 20%CO, 5% castor. Mixed the oils and lye and all was well, then I added cinnamon bark oil. Within SECONDS everything turned into mashed potatoes! Was it the EO?? Were my oils to hot? Oil was 120* and lye was 110*. Oh this literally ruined my evening!!
