"A little bit of everything " Cold Process SOAP Recipe
featuring our newest addition wheat germ oil


5 oz wt. sweet almond oil
2 oz wt. cocoa butter
5 oz wt. coconut oil
2 oz wt. mango butter
7 oz wt. palm oil
5 oz wt. palm kernel oil
6 oz wt. wheat germ oil
.5 oz wt of beeswax

12 oz wt. distilled water
4.51 oz wt. sodium hydroxide  (5%  excess fat range)

optional: 
.2 oz wt. Patchouli Essential Oil
.3 oz wt. Peppermint Essential Oil
.2 oz wt. Lavender Essential Oil
.3 oz wt. Orange 5X Essential Oil

Follow the basic soap making instructions:

You will need an 87 ounce bucket to melt all your oils in, a glass beaker for weighing out your lye, a glass beaker weighing your water. Remember always add lye (sodium hydroxide to water, never water to lye). A mold that holds 44 oz of liquid soap (our wooden soap mold works great)! A spatula for scraping soap out the bucket, a stick blender and of course an accurate scale for weighing out all of your ingredients.

  • Put on your safety goggles & neoprene gloves, combine your sodium hydroxide & your liquid, stir completely. Set the lye aside and allow it to cool between 100 – 125 degrees.
  • Combine your oils & heat. Temperature of oils needs to be between 100 – 125 degrees. If you are coloring your soap, add it to your oils at this time.
  • When both your lye & your oils are at approximately the same temperature (100 – 125 degrees) you need to combine them. Use precautions to avoid splashing.
  • Stir until the mixture traces. (You can use your stick blender to speed up this process).
  • Add your fragrance/essential oils and incorporate them into soap completely, then pour your soap into your molds.
