After 2 unsuccessful trials to make whipped soap I decided I better to ask some experts in making such type soaps. But first about my troubles.
The oils were whipped until nice and fluffy as I usually do for my body butters. After adding the lye solution all the mass went down and didn't come up after 15 minutes of vigorous whipping. So, my soap wasn't considered as whipped anymore. Now I think that the problem was in temperatures. If I cool my oils while whipping, it means the lye solution should about the same temperature and mine was about 100F when I poured to whipped oils and this is too high, right? What do you think?
Also, should I use the hand mixer to bring it to the trace not the stick blender as with regular CP soap, right?

I make sure my lye solution is room temp as well as my oils. And yes, you should use the hand mixer when bringing it to trace.
