Bar Soaps
Mary's Christmas Soap


    Date : 1997-12-12

    Here is a recipe that I concocted for use as a base soap in making all the soaps I have made for Christmas presents. It has worked very well with all of the different fragrance oils I have used, and it feels really nice on the skin, too.

    Ingredients:

    • 16 oz wt Coconut Oil
    • 18 oz wt Peanut Oil
    • 16 oz wt Lard
    • 19 oz water or other liquid
    • 7 oz wt Lye (sodium hydroxide)
    • fragrance oil as desired

    Instructions:

    I mix the oils and lye/liquid at around 95°F and let the soap stay in the mold for about 48 hours before taking it out to cut into bars. Let the soap cure for about 2-3 weeks and enjoy!! I figure it makes about 18 4-oz bars.

Lavender Fields Color
I think Lavender Fields makes wonderful colored soaps. You can swirl with it, make confetti soap or just have a single colored soap. Start planning to make some purple soap for your purple loving friends or customers!

Coconut Oil, Virgin
This lovely oil doesnít keep itís aroma in soap, but it makes decadent lip balms, lotions and lotion bars.
