Single Oil Soap - Sweet Almond Oil

Sweet Almond Oil. I consider Sweet Almond Oil to be one of my staple oils for making lip balms and lotions. I wanted to test this oil next to see what it would contribute to a bar of soap. I have never made a soap with Sweet Almond before and wondered if it might be a staple in a soap makers cabinet. Let’s go make a Sweet Almond Oil Soap!

I didn’t have any problems when mixing this soap. It went smoothly with no accelerated trace. This soap has stayed soft. When I went to wash with it, I was surprised how creamy it was before I turned on the faucet. I turned on the water and the soap reminded me a lot of the Cocoa Butter soap without being a solid bar. Very creamy, not so strong in the cleansing field, but there was an occasional bubble. So, the decision on Almond Oil is to limit it to 1 to 2 oz in each pound of fat.

Weigh the Sweet Almond Oil into a microwave safe container. Heat until warm. This took about 2 1/2 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. Pour into a mold and allow to sit for 24 hours. Enjoy!
