    So, I made this batch of soap and it didn't saponify for whatever reason. I did everything the same as usual. Anyways, can I fix this by melting it down and adding more oils or is that not possible?

    I've had this happen before...put it in the pot and heat it up, stir CONSTANTLY! Use a candy thermometer and don't let it get above 120*.....take it off the heat and stir....it will darken and should set up for you....if not, I've let it "rest" for 4 weeks and used it in laundry.
