We experienced a moderate amount of acceleration but no separation. After the oils and water slowly came to an emulsion we switched to alternating between a single pulse of the stick blender and hand-stirring until we reached a light trace. We immediately did a second test to confirm trace and found it was at a thick trace. The batter remained workable and it poured smoothly into the mold without stiffening. After 24 hours, we observed there was very little discoloration and the soap reached a partial gel. The scent was quite strong and true to the out-of-bottle character. After 30 days, the soap had a very slight yellow discoloration, we only noticed it when compared to an unscented bar. The scent was still strong but a little smoother and well-balanced. We’d recommend adding this fragrance at a light trace and plan to work quickly with a simple design.
