Slice of Summer - by Camille Pratt of Wild Iris Botanicals Recipe

Summary:

Cucumber soap

Ingredients:

15 oz. canola oil
30 oz. Coconut oil
27 oz. Olive oil
21 oz. Palm oil
5 oz. Shea butter
13.75 oz. Lye
20 oz. Rain or distilled water
16 oz. pureed cucumber, (peels and all!)

Instructions:

Mix lye and water and cool to 90 degrees. Puree the cucumbers, will be about 2 or 3 large cukes. Heat the oils to 90 degrees. Mix lye solution and the oils, blend well, add the cucumber puree. Bring to light trace, add fragrance of your choice. Bring to heavy trace. Pour in molds. LEAVE IT ALONE. :-)

Notes: Even in very hard water it has lots of lather, very creamy, and is very soothing to the skin. Uncolored, it is very lovely pale ivory, slightly translucent. No GSE (Grapefruit Seed Extract) needed. If you choose to modify this recipe by subbing other oils or butters, it will not be remotely the same unbelievably wonderful soap.
