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.

Aloe Powder


Aloe Powder
Aloe can be added to lotions, soaps, shampoo, conditioners and even masks. Look for any application where aloe might be used and try it! This powder is mixed 200:1 (200 parts water with 1 part aloe powder).

Disposable Droppers


Transfer Pipettes (droppers)
Large and Small

Pipettes are often called droppers. Use these transfer pipettes to fill lip balm tubes, measure small amounts of fragrance, liquid colorants and more. Once you have these on hand, you will find even more uses.
