Hope's Basic Soap Recipe

Submitted By:

Heather of Edmond, OK


A good hard bar of soap using basic ingredients


5 1/2 oz castor
30 oz wt hydrogenated soy
40 oz wt olive oil
16 oz wt coconut oil
5 1/2 tsp each salt and sugar

12 1/2 oz lye
34 fl oz distilled water


Mix lye in 30 oz of the water. Dissolve 5 1/2 tsp each of salt and sugar into the remaining 4oz of water and add back to your lye solution. Let the lye reach 125 degrees. Warm oils to 125 degrees and combine with lye solution. Blend until trace is reached. Pour into molds. I used 2" PVC and unmold in 48 hours. This makes a nice hard bar with lots of medium bubbles. I find it a bit drying, but my husband loves it.
