Here is an example recipe, you will need to run it through the Soap Maker's Friend or SoapCalc to get the right amount of liquid and lye. Depending on the FOs, I usually use about 1 oz per pound of oil. Check your supplier for the recommended percentage.

Castor Oil 8%
Coconut Oil 25%
Olive Oil 43%
Cocoa Butter 24%
