|With everything but maple syrup|
I started by mixing up my oils and adding the pumpkin puree to the oils. I have discovered that I really like to use un-melted oils. I mix the oils with my stick blender to break them up this way the oils get broken up and the pumpkin gets thoroughly mixed with the oils. I then add the lye water to my oils which melts them. I have found that it seems to work really well unless my lye water gets too cool.
After getting the lye water mixed in I realized that I had forgotten to discount the water from the pumpkin and the maple syrup. Oh well, live and learn. The soap did trace well though.

This soap smells very, very mildly. There is literally only a hint of scent.
