Looking through my old posts, I noticed that I made soap in 2011 and then again for the last time in 2013. I want to make it again and see that I used coconut oil, olive pomace oil and castor oil the other times. I was trying to make shampoo bars, but this time I just need it to be soap. I've been reading around this forum and the internet and it looks like the basic trinity is olive, palm and coconut. I plugged those into soap making friend using ratios I found in a post here, and I guess it gives me a recipe, but to be sure, can someone point me to a simple recipe with not very expensive ingredients, and where should I buy them? Amazon? Does this recipe mean I need to have 6 oz olive oil (is it olive pomace?), 4.41 oz coconut oil the 76 degree kind, 7.05 oz of palm oil, 5.02 oz of water? Does it need to be distilled? And 2.51 oz of lye?
