    I would like to try this, replacing all the water for oat milk or coconut water which I found in my local health food shop. What have your experiences been?

    I made a couple of batches with honey oat milk. the first siezed, not sure why. The second worked ok, but not all of the lye dissolved so I ended up having to chuck it as I still had undissolved lye in the finished product after curing. It started nice and creamy coloured, but discoloured to a tan after a couple of weeks. I haven't tried with just plain oat milk though, that's what I'm going to try for my next milk soap after I've built my confidence back up!
