Coconut milk soap with calendula

Ingredients:
olive oil, calendula infused
coconut oil
shea butter
palm oil
castor oil
coconut oil
water
NaOH
titanium dioxide
calendula petals
kurkuma powder
perfume oil bergamot

Made yesterday evening, using a recipe from Soap Making Essentials. Right after pouring I put them outside on the veranda to cool down. It was freezing so it worked really well. This morning I took them inside and popped them out of the mold. When frozen they were quite firm but now they've warmed up to room temperature, they're quite soft. I should have waited a bit longer before I took them out.
