I just started making soap. I took a class and we all made a batch of oatmeal honey soap. It came out great. I came home and a couple of weeks later, I made 3 batches of soap, but I changed the recipe slightly to include 7% beeswax. The process all seemed fine. Actually it went better that I expected. The only problem is the soaps are all dark colored and they have a funny food/cooking smell to them. I made a honey coconut milk, a honey almond, and a honey Lavender White tea. They all have this very distinct smell to them. I used these old wooden boxes that I had there were perfect size for molds. I Lined them with parchment paper and all the soaps came out fine after 24 hours. I am just wondering if I used too much beeswax. I cooled all the ingredients to about the same temperature, so not 100% what is happening. For all I know, they could all be fine. I have cut slivers of them and tested them and they are certainly soaps, they are all just dark and have this odd smell about them. Also if anyone has a good CP Beeswax recipe to share, please let me know.
