Jessica's Cupboard Soap

Jessica emailed in the other day asking about making a vegetarian milk soap. I decided to make one with almond milk. I made my own almond milk 1) because it is less expensive and 2) I don’t have to run to the store when I am in the middle of all of my projects. It is easier to have a machine work than to drop everything to run to the store. Want to know how I make almond milk? I used a SoyaPower Plus machine to make almond milk from almonds I had soaked for about 31/2 hours. You can see how Andee did this with soy beans. Same concept, just different types of milk. Let’s head to the kitchen and see how to approach a vegetarian milk soap!

Jessica has Olive Oil, Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Coconut Oil, Palm Kernel Oil, and Avocado Oil in her cupboard. I think we can make a soap, don’t you? 😉 Jessica also didn’t want any fragrance added to her soap as her honey doesn’t like scent. We will be keeping this formulation simple, but if you want to have a fragrance oil added to yours, you are more than welcome to add one to your formulation.

Weigh all of the oils into a microwave safe container. Heat gently until liquid. Add the lye to the water to for a lye solution. Allow the oils and the lye to cool to a lower temperature. We do not want to have the soap overheat and volcano. Mix the oils and lye solution and blend until a light trace is achieved. Add the almond milk and mix well. Pour into a mold and allow to sit for 24 hours. Cut the soap. Allow the soap to cure. Longer curing time will result in a harder bar. Enjoy!
