I have a recipe that is very interesting and I wondered if any of you have done the same thing. In my recipe I am to add the - water -to - the lye! I did that and it was sort-of successful, there was no explosion however... I am also not to melt my oils. which was also only sort-of successful. The lady I got my recipe from makes and sells the soap and it has never failed on her. I am not sure if my substituting Organic oils are making a difference... Do Organic Oils make that big of a difference?
