    I wanted to reply that I did buy and use the Pompiean Olive Oil from BJ's and I didn't have any different results than when I was using the Wellesley Farm Oil. It soaped beautifully.

    Without being able to see the swirliness that you mention, I will say that more often than I would have imagined, one can see the way someone poured or the way someone swirled by kind of ghostly changes to the colors within the soap. I have seen it in uncolored soap as well. If it's not glycerin rivers and it's too faint to be picked up on camera, I would guess it's this issue. I'm not certain what happens that makes it visible how the batter folded into the mold or what it is about disrupting the soap by swirling it, but I've seen them plenty often to know it happens.
