Homemade Lye Soap

While glycerin, melt & pour, and goat milk soap may be the most popular right now, some of us still like to make old fashion lye soap. The following is a recipe pulled out of the Bath & Body recipes ebook. So if you like this one, you might check out the ebook for additional ideas!

Oatmeal Soap
10 oz. palm oil
4 oz. coconut oil
2 oz. olive oil
1/4 c. oatmeal, run through the blender or coffee grinder
2 oz. lye
1 c. water
Scent (optional)

Mix lye and water and set aside to cool. Melt palm oil and coconut oil together and set aside to cool. Mix the olive oil and oatmeal. When the lye reaches 100 degrees and the fats are 120 degrees, pour the lye into the fats and stir until it traces. Add the oatmeal, and stir until well mixed. Pour the soap into molds. Allow to sit for 24-48 hours. Unmold and cut if needed.

PS – These make great Christmas gifts!
