I bought a soap base from Amazon and tonight proceeded to try and melt it so I could add some essential oils. I did it in a glass bowl over the top of some simmering water in a pan but although the outside would turn to liquid the centre kept going hard again. I had grated the base too and it took ages! I ended up microwaving it and it went to a melted marshmallow consistency which I quickly threw everything into and then put into the mould but I'm not happy with the results. What did I do wrong?
