My first time making soap! I found a guide and recipe to use at https://gospaces.com/blog/how-to-make-s ... nfographic and I'm doing some research. Does anyone have some tips that they wish that they knew before they started this hobby?

Welcome!

This section of the forum is for premade MP soap.

If you are making CP soap, run ANY recipe through a lye calculator, even the ones online. Some recipes on the net are either very lye heavy or use cups or tablespoons.
Always go by weight and superfat. It helps if you know what each oil brings to the table. Play around with soap calc to see what a particular recipe looks like.

BTW. Adding any oil or butter at trace is an old wife's tale. Lye at trace is still very active and it will take whatever it wants. There is no guarantee that any particular oil or butter will end up as your superfat. Lye does not discriminate.
