So I made a huge batch of unscented CP soap two days ago, and was wondering...I accidentally put in too much oil, so when I added the lye, there was still about maybe the tip of a fingernaillayer of oilfloating on top. So I made some more water/lye and added it...until there was no more oil on top. So, because there was so much oil and now it is gone (I added in little increments), does that mean I have the correct amount of lye, or do I have too much lye now, because I was just kind of winging it?
the second part of the question is that I made this batch to remill, so I will add more oils and essential oils when I rebatch. Sooooo, if there does end up being too much lye in the original batch (I will be buying ph strips to make sure)...can I balance the hypothetical lye imbalance by ading more emollients?
