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
Instructions:In 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.
