i made 4 batches of soap yesterday two of them was one i have made before with to problem.for what ever reason it came to trace fast i had to cram it int he mold has air pockets in it.same kind next batch it did not trace any faster that it always.i poured at a thiner trace has still had a few air bubbles but will be OK.3ed batch stinks offal it was a new recipe i will never use unrefined Shea with unrefined hemp seed oil again but still the texture is sticky and a few air holes.4th one looks OK made later last night.it was like 96 hear but i have air.will the heat make a difference how the soap turns out i have never had such a bad soaping day.even tho i had the air on. i have only had one other batch ever have air bubbles before yesterday.

Wish I could blame my similar problem on the heat--It's been over 100 for a week or so.

However, I think I know what I did to cause zero to vaseline acceleration.....

I accidentally put my oxide-in-glycerin colorant into the oils instead of into the lye water like I usually do. Don't really understand why this would make it happen, but it's the only thing I did different. Once again wishing I'd paid better attention in Chemistry!

Then I think I blended too long to try to make sure it dispersed evenly and next thing I knew...vaseline consistency. :embarasse @##@!?!?

Haven't cut it yet, but afraid I'm gonna have bubbles too.
