I've been reading, reading and more reading about making soap but have yet to make any. I want to start out with a small batch in case I don't like it I won't be out too much.
I want a moisturizing soap with a good lather. I'm allergic to soybean and cottonseed so don't want to use those. I have sweet almond and coconut oil already.
I'd like to add a little beeswax but don't know where I can substitue it since I'm a newbie. Maybe a little honey if it wouldn't make it sticky or be too much. This is the recipe I have in mind.
13 oz. olive oil
1 oz coconut oil
1 oz palm oil
4 oz distilled water
2 oz lye
Can someone tell me how to add beswax to this recipe?

Barb, I really appreciate your reply. My question may have sounded dumb but not for someone who's never made soap before.

your're welcome the only dumb question is the one that doesn't get asked.
