Nutmeg Butter Soap Recipe
of Princeton, NJ
Exceptionally elegant gift soap. Great way to put the FNWL 4 oz. butter sampler sets to use.
4.0 oz Cocoa Butter
1.6 oz Coconut Oil
4.0 oz Mango Butter
3.2 oz Sal Butter
3.2 oz Shea Butter
2.4 oz Lye (NaOH)
5.7 oz Buttermilk (goat's or whole milk) powder in water
0.2 oz Nutmeg Butter (1%)
This makes a few, medium sized elegant gift bars, depending on the molds used. Use a decorative but sturdy set of molds to ladel in the raw soap.
~ Combine lye and liquid, stir well. Set aside and to cool (100° F to 125° F).
~ Combine oils and melt. Allow to cool (100° F to 125° F).
~ Pour lye/liquid solution into melted oils in thin steady stream. Stir until trace. Can use stick blender intermittently, but for no more than one minute at a time -- then go back to spoon. Should trace quite quickly. Don't over-stir beyond trace.
~ Pour raw soap into your prepared molds.
~ After 48 hours, the soap can be turned out of the mold. Allow to cure for 3 weeks. Place the bars on something that will allow air to circulate all around (or flip bars every few days).
