I've had a request for a salt bar with BB's Arabian Spice. I used a slightly modified IL salt bat recipe which got plenty warm, and I've used Arabian Spice in a lard recipe that got so hot it cracked in the 'fridge.

Dare I combine the two?

If you do, use individual cavity mold and put it in the fridge.

I soap mine cool - the lye is room temp and the oil is probably only a bit above that - 80 or so. I actually usually put mine back on the stove after I add the soap and FO to get it to thicken.

Update: made salt bars with Arabian Spice from BB which normally heats a up a unsalt bar 2.5 loaf until it cracks, and while it gelled - it was not as fast or hot as unsalted bar. Scent seems stronger too.
