I totally ran out of soap! Thankfully, I didn’t have to buy any thanks to my friend April. I exchanged some lye for some of her lovely bars of soap. Now my record of not having to buy soap for almost 4 years still stands!
I especially love the espresso owl soap!
Today, April came over and helped me make some more. About 75 bars more!
I always use the same 3 recipes and just modify them, by adding things or using various liquids. My two favorite recipes are HERE.
This is the other one I used today:
37 ounces olive oil
7 ounces coconut oil
12 ounces distilled water
6 ounces lye
The directions on how to make soap in your crock pot are HERE.
We made some with espresso, some with tea and some with chai tea. Just water works fine, too. But remember to ALWAYS use distilled water!
For texture, throw in poppy seeds, coffee grounds, or whatever else you like. Essential oils work well for scents.
tea tree oil
April also let me use her beautiful new mold her husband made her. While my plastic molds are fine, I may just need to get me one of those… ;o)
