Hi 
   I started a Red Sandalwood infusion in sunflower oil last night. The problem is I don't remember how much Red Sandalwood I put in. I have to admit I wasn't paying as much atttention as I should. I wanted to make some soap for my brother for Christmas (he won't get until after Christmas) but I wanted to make the soap this week, I had planned on infusing the oil early on Sunday but got caught up with other things, so I started it just before i went to bed. I have two cups of sunfllower oil but I think I need more oil. Anyone have any idea. I think it is about 1/2 ounce by wieght of sandalwood, but I can't find the label for the package.

I am feeling like an idiot, but any advice would be appreciated.

How is your soap finally looking like cuddle? And do you think what steps had you done wrong while making it?

Don't know yet, haven't made it. But you know it is kinda hard to mess up natural soap making at least when coloring oil. One of my favorite parts of soapmaking is experimenting. As long as you don't mess up the lye which can be dangerous as long as the soap ends up soap. Really I think your fine. I made a bayberry/hollyberry scented soap a few weeks back for Christmas and used micas forgetting that both the fragrance oils would be colored and micas morph in CP soap. Now it didn't turn out like I wanted, but the green is not the bright green I expected but a nice 'piney' green, and red is sort of burgandy and the gold (what you can see of it) is pretty. I will take pictures at some point to show it off. I am very pleased with it.
