|Yesterday I talked a little about Castor Oil. As I haven’t yet featured Castor Oil as a single oil soap, I thought we could fix that today. Are you ready to learn what castor oil contributes to you soap? Let’s head to the kitchen and find out!I had a little whoops when making the Single Castor Oil soap. I heated the castor oil in the microwave for two minutes. I stirred my lye into my water and without letting either cool, I mixed them together. A separate test told me my castor oil would have been about 200° F and my lye solution about 170° F. I had a volcano in my mixing beaker! I was to busy jump back to get any decent photos of the action but it sure made a mess!What was really amazing to me is that the soap was so hot it started to gel on the counter! I have never seen a soap do that. I certainly relearned the importance of checking your temperatures! I also learned that 5 minutes of letting things cool is much better than 15 minutes of cleaning up hot soap! Egads! I think I forgot my brain today!
Weigh the Castor Oil into a microwave safe container. Heat until warm. This took about 2 minutes for me. Add the lye to the water to for a lye solution. Mix the oils and lye solution and blend until trace is achieved. Step back watch volcano. Scrape into a mold and allow to sit for 24 hours. Enjoy!
