Hey all, trying to make some melt and pour glycerin soap yesterday and this morning they look like they have Tinybeans of sweat all over them. What did I do wrong? I did add food coloring and essential oils…

that's glycerin dew due to the humidity in the air. Different MP bases have different "sweating" tendencies. Ambient temperature/humidity also has an effect on MP soap.
If I am not immediately wrapping my MP soap after it hardens, I keep the soap covered until I am able to wrap the MP soap in either Saran Wrap or Shrink Wrap

Also, don't melt your M&P so much you accidentally start cooking it! I have seen this causes issues with my soap as well. If I over melt (start cooking) and don't wrap them immediately, this happens
