The gel phase is a part of the saponification process. Though this is a part of the soap making process that can happen naturally, it is not completely necessary. Your decision on whether or not to let your soap gel depends on the result you’re looking for.
All you need to start making soap is oils, lye, water, and a few soap safe containers and tools. You can always start with the basics and build your soap supply list as you gain experience.
