So I was making soap and I guess I got distracted in the middle? Because just before I poured the lye water I had a brain flash that I hadn't added some of my oil. So I weighed the oils - and of a 2000 gram recipe I had only 1200 grams. The oils that I clearly remembered not adding only accounted for 300 grams. So...l made up the rest in olive oil, and added a little extra to make sure it wasn't lye heavy. Not too worried b/c I KNOW I added the lard and the coconut. So now...we wait.

It smells really good though! Blackberry Musk from Bitter Creek North.

It is probably a bit OCD but I tick my recipe off as I go through my oils. Sometimes I have my oils lined up in front of me on the bench and I put them away as I finish with each one.
