Yes...I must admit that it has not been easy, but it's part of this whole learning experience. With that in mind I decided to soap with a new fragrance from Nature Garden - "Morning Glory and Honeysuckle". It is described by the vendor as:
blend of morning glories, honeysuckle, and geranium; rounded out with notes of corn mint, cedarwood, eucalyptus, orange and patchouli.
Sounds good to me!
So I gather my supplies, prep my colors and found a happy temperature for my oils and lye water. Everything was perfect. Soaping world was wonderful...I was even humming a happy tune :)
I was so happy with my color scheme...look...PRETTYYYYYYYYYYYYY....
I stuck it in the fridge and all was good.
I took it out the next day and come back to check on it and discovered the weirdest thing - beads of water on the surface.
At first I thought that maybe one of the kids had sprayed something on top of it or my hubby had accidentally sprayed over it while he was cleaning, but after carefully checking around I realised that it was not the case. It was the weirdest thing. I kind of panicked and decided to unmold it to see if maybe it had overheated and something else was going on inside. I managed to damage the corners of the soap since it was still soft, but the inside looked OK after I cut it. Then I started to notice some more beading starting to pop out of the bars...see pic (hopefully you can see some of the beads of water in the bottom over the white)
I finally decided to let it be since I did not want to rebatch this one as well. I checked it the following day and all the beads had disappeared. I checked it for zap and it was good. So either it was the glycerin or condensation..
One thing for sure, I am so glad that this soaping batch was OK...I really LOVE how the swirls came out...they look so PRETTYYYYYYYYYYY :)
