Oatmeal Cinnamon Soap
This was made on the blog on January 21st, 2010.
7.8 oz wt castor oil
12.4 oz wt olive oil
12 oz wt safflower oil
38 oz wt Hydrogenated Soybean Oil
9.2 oz wt lard
30 fluid ounces water
10.08 oz wt lye
8 oz wt finely ground oatmeal was used as a filler
1 tablespoon Ground Cinnamon as a colorant
InstructionsIn creating this soap I combined my lye solution and oils at 120
degrees, and stirred to trace at 94 degrees. At trace, I added my
blenderized oatmeal and 1 tablespoon of Cinnamon to a large plastic
measuring cup, and with a whisk combined them both together. Then I
added three cups of my oil and lye solution, mixed well, and returned
this mixture, back to my original mixture of oil and lye solution. The
soap can be uncovered after 18 hours and turned out of its mold in 24
hours. This recipe makes almost eight pounds of soap. It was left to
cure for three weeks. This soap lathers well and is long-lasting.
(From Majestic Mountain Sage: Please note that some individuals can have an allergic reaction to cinnamon. Please label your soap. We think the color is gorgeous! Try it if your family doesn't have a cinnamon allergy.)
Makes 4.9 pounds of soap.
