    Amanda, love your videos, So easy to follow your directions. Im a new soaper with several batches under my belt. I read that one should always run recipes thru the soap calculator. The Zebra Glam recipe calls for 250 grams of water but soap calc calls for 342 grams of water. Which should I use and wich is correct..

    What a lovely colourful soap. Would like to try but am wondering what I can use instead of the safflower oil ?
