My Soaps

The Sexy Moisturizing Soap

This is a fabulous winter soap, with lots of moisturizing goodness.  My soap came out of the mold oddly oily feeling, but it’s luscious to use, leaving skin feeling well lubricated and clean.  Decent lather, but not super bubbly.

**This recipe will be getting a rework.  My math is bad and it’s highly superfat, which is why the bar is oily.  I’ll work on my math skills and post an update.**

Sweet Almond Oil 3.1 ounces

Canola Oil 6.2 ounces

Coconut Oil 4.6 ounces

Grapeseed Oil 3.1 ounces

Olive Oil 13.4 ounces

Safflower Oil 3.1 ounces

Shea Butter 1.6 ounces

Lye 4.5

Water 11.2

2 tablespoons of raw honey

A note on using honey – Honey is an odd thing in soap and slightly finicky.  You need to reserve some of your water (I held back 1.2 ounces), heat it up and melt your honey into it before adding it to a slightly cooled lye solution.  Honey will change how your soap behaves in hot process, you just have to wait it out.

Essential Oils (I used Orange, Cinnamon and Clove)

Kitchen Sink Soap

It uses everything but the kitchen sink.  I grabbed a bunch of common oils you probably have in your kitchen, used them all at 20%, and got soap.  Yes, I am that awesome.  This is a very nice general purpose soap with a good lather, very cleansing.  It doesn’t do a whole lot for the moisture department, but it isn’t at all drying either.

Vegetable Shortening 8 ounces
