Cinnamon Rosemary Soap
- 42 oz wt Olive Oil
- 39 oz wt Hydrogenated Soybean Oil
- 32 oz wt Coconut Oil
- 16 oz wt Lye (sodium hydroxide)
- 42 oz water
Instructions:Add the scent (1/3 oz. cinnamon leaf essential oil and 1/3 oz. rosemary essential oil) and stir thoroughly; split the batch into two halves. Stir about 1/3 to 1/2 cup cocoa into one half of the batch to achieve desired brown color; marble the two in a box mold by pouring the cream colored portion in first, then the brown portion; swirl w/ a spatula. Cover as usual. This soap may take on a turpentine-like smell as it cures - don't worry! It goes away, and is a wonderfully long lasting scented soap.
Notes & Comments:Here's my contribution to the recipe list - it's a wonderful marbled soap, everyone's favorite. Men seem to especially go for the spicy scent. (Note! Epileptics should not use rosemary essential oils)
