Sweet Honeyed Carrot Soap

Ingredients:

  • 7.5 oz Coconut Oil
  • 8 oz Castor Oil
  • 8 oz Olive Oil
  • 16 oz Sunflower Oil
  • 16 oz Hydrogenated Soybean Oil (shortening)
  • 2 oz Beeswax
  • 8 oz Carrot Juice
  • 14 oz Water
  • 7.58 oz Lye (sodium hydroxide)

Instructions:

Measure oils on your scale. Warm on the stove or in the mircowave. Bring temperature to near 120°F. Exact temperature is not critical.

Add sodium hydroxide to the water. Mix well. Allow to cool to near 120°F. Exact temperature is not critical.

Combine oils and lye solution and carrot juice. Stir until trace. Stir well. Pour soap into molds.

Allow to sit until soap is firm. Depending on the depth of the mold this will happen in 6 to 36 hours. Deeper molds allow for faster firming.

Cut into bars. Stack to allow good air circulation. Allow to cure for several days before using. Longer curing will result in a harder bar.

Notes & Comments:

At trace I added honey which had been caramelized in the microwave & aloe vera. The soap is a lovely almost translucent pale orange & has a warm sweet scent but not sickley sweet. My DH approves which says something 'cause he hasn't given up his DOVE yet!!
