Recipe Directions

  1. This project and these instructions have been written for someone who has experience making soap and knows the potential dangers due to working with sodium hydroxide. It will not outline safety methods of working with dangerous chemicals, it is simply a soap recipe for advanced soapmakers.
  2. Put on your protective gear. This is very important since you will be working with an extremely caustic base that can and will burn you if you touch it. Noxious fumes are also released from the exothermic reaction that occurs when you mix the sodium hydroxide with water
  3. Wear a face mask or leave the vicinity quickly after stirring the sodium hydroxide into the water. If you get any lye on your skin just wash it off quickly with copious amounts of cool water
  4. In separate containers, measure by weight your water and your Lye.
  5. Gradually mix the Lye in water until the Lye Flakes are dissolved. Set aside in a safe place and allow to cool.
  6. Measure your Castor, Argan, Jojoba and Sunflower Oil in a large bowl. This will be the bowl you will stick blend in, so make sure it will be large enough.
  7. Measure your Cocoa Butter, Palm Oil and Coconut oil and melt over low heat until liquid. Once melted, add to your liquid oils.
  8. When both your oils and your lye water are about 115°F or below you are ready to mix.
  9. With all of your safety equipment on (safety glasses, gloves, sleeves), and stick blender ready, pour your lye water into the oils. We recommend pouring down the shaft of the stick blender to try to avoid air bubbles.
  10. You are now ready to blend the soap. We stick blended until the soap reached a light trace, and then added our essential oils. Stir oils in by hand and pour into mold.
  11. After 24 hours you can unmold/cut the soap. Allow to cure for 4-6 weeks before using. Check the PH to be sure it is at a skin-safe level.
