Easy Soap Recipe
17 ounces Lard
8 ounces Coconut Oil
Melt oils together. Allow to set overnight in a warm place. You don't want them to get too hard to stir.
3.5 ounces Lye
3.5 ounces Distilled Water
Wearing gloves, apron, long sleeves and eye protection pour distilled water into a heat proof non reactive container. Slowly pour lye into the water, stir to dissolve. Set in a safe place out of the reach of pets and children over night.
The next day prepare the soap mold and weigh,
6 ounces of goat milk
1.5 ounces of fragrance
Mica or colorant of choice
|Pour oils into container|
|Add goat milk|
|Stir until soap reaches 'trace'|
|Once soap has reached trace pour into mold and cover to insulate overnight|
|The soap should be ready to cut the next day. We used a soap stamp dusted with mica for a little added charm.|
