I nailed it! :)

I have a love hate relationship with Oatmeal, Milk and Honey soap. it's beautiful to use and I love the 'wholesomeness' of the bar.  However I hate making it. I've had it overheat (many times), I've burnt the honey and the milk, I've had it separate, and I can't for the life of me get it to look a beautiful creamy colour.  I have made some bars that are good - but not great. 
So you can imagine my happiness when I FINALLY got it.  I am 100% happy with this batch.  I did a couple of things differently - I used a different honey, I warmed a small portion of the milk and mixed the honey in with that and added it at a thicker trace, and I added oats that were ground a lot finer.

All these things seemed to have given me the bar I was looking for :)
