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.


    • 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


    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.
