Love him and his "less is more" attitude!You Tube named Uncle John
I also use Katie Carson's recipe... sorta... I tweaked it a bit because I love lard in my soaps and I'm not a fan of olive oil so I partially replace it with some canola (also less expensive). I have labeled it my "slow soap". It takes a bit of stick blending to get it to emulsion. It does make a semi soft bar of soap, but I also use aloe (or coconut milk) for my water and kaolin clay for the feel. I've had a bar of it in my shower for about a month or more and it's lasted a while under my abuse! I'm an extreme lather-er! I also don't pay as much attention to the hardness scale and more cleansing and conditioning. Because that's what I want & well I have enough soap to last my family until probably the end of the next century!!!!
Have fun and Good luck!
