maybe it will work... when i used a lot of honey i put it in the lye water and it carmelized.
honey is a humectant so its expected to take longer to dry out or harden.
I added the honey slightly diluted with water at trace, not in the lye. I'll definitely keep them a few weeks to see what happens before deciding if I throw them out. If they don't harden would there be any way to save them? Would rebatching chopped bits of it into a new soap possibly save them or ruin that new soap as well?
What's the most amount of honey known to not cause problems in CP soap?
I had made this recipe based on the "Honey I spiced the soap" recipe from this page which uses 17.5% honey compared to oils:http://www.soap-making-at-home.com/honey_soap_recipe.html
I'm thinking there's a mistake in their recipe because all their other recipes use 2-4 tbsp, I wrote them to let them know they should correct or remove the recipe. It's true I used different oils and was making 50% salt bars, but i don't think that's what caused the problem.
