Anyone Else Into Trying The Necessities of Years past
« on: May 20, 2008, 01:25:49 PM »

I love making homemade soap. When we had the goat dairy it used a lot of surplus milk.

This is a lye based soap but very easy to do. Print your labels on your computer and you have the start of a unique christmas gift


Homemade Lye Soap


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.
