Ok, this bad boy was a pain to deal with! it started out just fine, no funky additives, soaped at room temp. my colorants were annatto and turmeric infused olive oil and I used pleasingly pumpkin FO from NGS. When I stick blended in was fine but as soon as I poured it into the mold it started smoking. And then started turning hard in the mixing bowl. thankfully I just plop it into my small crockpot that's only used for soap and it melted up enough for me to put it back into my mold. I think it might have been my maylar liners maybe that did it but not sure. oh well, soap still turned out great and I now have more "wonderful" experience under my hat.
