MAY 2016 Soap of the Month

  

Cold Processed 100% Coconut oil Soap

This is a recipe that lot of people make on line I got mine from a friend and formulated the way I wanted it I have been making this recipe for my Granddaughters for 4 years now and became a favorite of lot of her students at her school.

Equipment needed:

A good working digital scale

Large enough container to hold a 48 ounces oil batch of soap

Stick blender

1 container for lye one-container for water

Paper towels to rest your Stick blender

Thermometer

Wooden sticks

  1 small container for the extra oils

1 small container for the Essential oils,

Freezer paper if needed to line your mold,

Soap Mold for 48 oz of oils

And rubber gloves

 

 

 

Ever since I start making soap 10 years ago I use a water discount 33% with all my soaps And 5% Super fat I don’t know why but this is how I do it its up to you  if you want to use full water

But in this recipe I use 

33 % water discount

20 % Superfat

So here it goes 

INGREDIENTS:

Oils for 48 oz

Coconut oil 48oz [100 %]

Essential Oils

.50 % Tea Tee oil

.50% Rosemary

.50% Clary Sage

.50 % Lemongrass

At trace

1.00 oz Hazelnut oil

1.00 oz Pomegranate oil

7.92 oz distilled water

 and  7.92 Almond, coconut,  

7.04    Sodium hydroxide (formulated for 20 % superfat)

 

 

  Next, weigh your 7.92 oz distilled water and lye, ALWAYS combine the lye into the water and stir with your Spoon until the mixture is clear.  Set aside to cool.  

When water and lye are cooling I mix in the Almond and Coconut 

Weigh the Coconut oil into your soap bowl and melted it down

Weigh the Essential oils and set them aside

I always soap @ a room temperature

When everything is ready I start

Slowly pour the lye into the oil mixture, stick blend ONLY until you see a light trace.

As long as the mixture is fully emulsified and it reaches a light trace, you can ad your carrier oils

And the essential oils

  Once everything is mix really good

You start pour in to your mold you tap the soap on the counter for the bubbles to

Come at the top.

I do not insulate my soap; I just allow it to set on the counter

I  demold  the soap the next day, and start cutting the soap,

With this recipe I get 13-14 bars of soap I place the soap on a curing rack for at least for six to 8 weeks. -

 I always try the soap by washing my hands after a few days

Great recipe! Thanks Sherry! I love the picture you added with the soap bubbles in your hands. Shows how nice and bubbly the soap is! I love a good coconut oil soap!!

 

I've never added hazelnut or pomegranate oil. Can you tell why you like to use them  and what they add to the soap?

Candybee   The soap is for my Granddaughters face i made  that soap to many times with different carrier oils and it was always dry for there faces  and I do have a Little brochure from another board that explains all the benefits of all the oils so  after all the tries they like that one

Thanks for clarifying Sherry! Makes me want to give them a try. I already had hazelnut oil on my list to try someday, now I think I'll add the pomegranate too.

Moonstar : the 7.92 is for the  liquid before you mix the lye  water and and Coconut walnut  7.92 water and 7.92 walnut  or you can even the numbers like 8.00 0z water and 8.00 oz Coconut walnut I hope that help

As puma says your recipe looks so creamy yum!  I want to try hand at soap making but need to do more research.  You mention a brochure that mentions the benefits of each oil.  Would you mind sharing where I could get that ?  Thanks for the tutorial Sherry!
