Hi I want to try this recipe but why so much water

Zany, I tried your recipe. It creates a super hard bar, good lather, and a nice feel. Really like it. Thanks for sharing. I'm looking for a really simple recipe that makes a good bar. I've used up to 7 oils in a recipe and that's really too much for me. I think this will be one of my staples; it's simple and to the point.:) I saw you had a variation of this with 40% shea, 25% CO, 5% CA, & 30% OO or other oil. I'm going to try that also.
Hi did u try the viration of her recipe how did it turn out

You're welcome! ;)
Did you S/F and how did u like your variation of that recipe

I make a 59% raw shea, 24% RBO, 12% CO, 5 Castor with a lav, litsea, lemongrass eo combination at 3% superfat and 30% Lye Concentration with a 6 month cure. It makes a lovely gentle bar that will lather nicely after the long cure time. Even better the longer the cure, I am just using up some that are 3 yrs old. I have used up to 75% shea for my own use.

You're welcome!
Can I learn what kind of grease you use to isolate the mold?
I am using paper or strech film and it is hard to do it every time.
I use WSP's Loaf Silicone Mold. I use unscented baby oil or mineral oil.

If using a wooden mold, or something similar, you will have to line it.
Look on YouTube to find easy ways to do that, depending on the type of paper you use. :)

I am using wooden mold and lining it with cooking paper (we use it in the oven tray) or stretch film . They both work well but hard to prepare that is why I asked.
I thing greasing a wooden mold does not work, must be lined.
Thank you.

made zany_in_co recipe with 67% shea butter (7/22/22). Unmolded-cut- stamped today 7/23/22. Before gelling sprinkled top with Madmicas Color Me Gold. Looks great! Love the gentle turmeric coloring. Am in first 6 months of learning to make soap. This recipe went very smoothly and am looking forward to using this in the heavy winters of Wisconsin when my skin drys out! Thank you Zani_in_co
