My latest soap went into crazy mode and traced ultra quick the moment I poured the lye into the oils. I barely had time to toss in my essential oils, pour one layer into the mould, colour another layer and assemble together without having to put up with air pockets (I hope not!). The recipe for 700 gms oil and superfat at 7% with a lye concentrate of 30.5% (it's premade lye). I soaped at 40 C. I had mango butter at 25%, the rest are soft oils. EOs are Ylang Ylang, May Chang and 4 Thieves Additives are ginseng powder and coix seed powder Colourant is cinnamon powder. I also added in some ROE (about 1-2 ml) into the base oils. I don't think the colourant and EOs are the problem. It could be the additives although I have never known powders to quicken trace that fast! Could it be the mango butter or the ROE? Hm, I'm definitely going to repeat this again with minor changes - make my own lye at maybe 36-38%, soap at a lower temp and toss the powder in later. Gah. Will take a pic later.
