Shea Butter Soap Recipe

Submitted By:

Cheryl of Tucson, AZ


Wonderful and moisturizing soap bar


4.8 oz olive oil
4.8 oz coconut oil
3.2 oz shea butter
3.2 oz palm oil
6oz distilled water
2.2oz of lye
.8oz essential oil


Follow your basic soap recipe. I melt the Shea Butter in the microwave for about 20 seconds or so it doesn't take long. and I add it along with the other oils.

This recipe will produce 4-6 bars depending on the size of your molds. I think these bars are simliar to the lquid soap they sell at bath and body works that has the shea butter in it.
