Okay, soap veterans: Pray my strength in the Lord!
If you hear the sound of fire engines, dogs barking and babies crying, it MAY be due to the strange sounds/smells coming from my kitchen window!
Naw. Seriously, this is going to be SO much fun! I measured out all my oils/butters (except the coconut oil) and the lye, last nite. I'll measure out my coconut oil and water this morning. Lye water will be mixed outside.
My recipe is one I made up, with the guidance of SoapCalc. SoapmakerMan came in and tweaked some of the oil amts, and it was good to go. Thanks Paul!
2.56 oz Sweet Almond Oil
2.56 oz Apricot Kernel Oil
8 oz Olive Pomace Oil
2.24 oz Mango Butter
5.44 oz Coconut Oil 76
6.4 oz Palm Oil
4.8 oz Palm Kernel Oil
4.61 oz Lye
12.16 oz Water
"Fig Lychee" FO added (.7 ounces per pound of oils). Of course I'm using a GENUINE TOG Soap Mold, to hold my soap batter. After my books, it was the first soapmaking tool I purchased.
I'll be back tomorrow, with pics! Stay tuned...
