Combining Oil and Lye - Cody Wellard

Now that your oil and water/lye mixture have cooled to room temperature you slowly pour your lye mixture into your oils, stir slowly with plastic spatula.  Take your stick blender and give it a blast for 30 seconds.  You must be careful not to over blend as you will warm your oils and slow trace. Trace means that the mixture is thick enough that when drizzled from the plastic spatula onto the surface, that it will leave a visible trail before it disappears or when you lift the blender out of the soap mixture you can see the outline of the blender in the soap
