Hi everybody! I am very new to soaping, have only made 3 batches so far. The last batch I made seems to have something odd about it but I haven't had any luck researching it. It looks like there are swirls of ungelled soap within the gelled soap?

The recipe I used was:
6 oz lye
14.4 oz water
10 oz palm oil
10 oz coconut oil
24 oz olive oil

I cooled the lye water to 120 degrees.

I split the batch into 3, one of which I left as is and the other two I used to test an EO and a colorant. The two with extra ingredients seem fine, but the "plain" one looks like what you see in the picture. I did accidentally add .1 oz extra olive oil, but since the other 2 seem fine I figured that wasn't the issue. Did I maybe not blend enough? Is this soap safe? Thank you so much!

At what temp did you stick blend? Did you reach a true trace? Did you use a scent which can accelerate trace?

I would test the soap for zap. If the oils started to congeal, it's possible that you didn't get a true trace.

If this batch is just for you, you could shred it, add a little more oil and rebatch.

I realize this was a while ago and I hope you found your answer BUT I can't see your picture but I know what is wrong here.
To start with you super fatted at 3% which is not wrong by itself but your oil usage was 5% short which means this soap is 2% lye heavy.
You have too much lye because of not enough oil OR you wrote your ounces down wrong. They do not match to your total weight in oils. They are 5% off.
