Hi Jennifer! While sweating (aka: glycerin dew) is common in melt and pour soap, it sounds like you may have experienced an excessive amount. This can be caused by living in an area with high humidity. It can also be caused by adding extra ingredients, like oils, butters or extracts. This may be what is causing the excess sweating. I will be emailing you personally to help you troubleshoot what is causing the sweating. You may also find
