Hi Just joined. Beginner soap maker. Threw on the ingrediants for a melt and pour base and accidentally put the glycerine in with my oils before lye!! What will happen or not happen if I continue? I assume it's a flag as lye ratio will be affected. Can I save it?

Sorry, and yes, I get way ahead of myself. I was melting oils, and instead of doing oil/lye mix and bringing to trace, after which glycerine is added, I threw glycerine into croc pot with oil! Do am wondering if I can use this mix in some way? Is it worth adding the lye and attempting to bring to trace, or should I just bin the lot?

Ok, I'll bin it. Also, if a recipe calls for .5 Oz lemon ess oil and .5 TeaTree and I only want to use Lemon would I put 1 oz lemon or stick to .5 total ess oil?
