Testing FOs/EOs & Colorants in CP

Make lye solution. set in sink to cool
6 oz. water (33%) ~ (6.75 oz. 38%)
2.7 oz. (76 grams) NaOH (1% SF)


Make soap using 18 oz oils (NOTE: 18 oz. oils X 1.37 = 24 oz. soap (approx.) 6 bars, 4 oz each
8 oz. lard 44.4%
5 oz. coconut oil 27.7%
3.5 oz. olive oil 19.4%
1.5 oz. castor oil 8.3%
18 oz. TOTAL (INS 162)


Set out 6 small Pyrex bowls. Melt oils.
Put 1 Tbls. warm oils in each bowl.
Add 1/4 tsp. colorant to each. Mix well.
Add 3 ml FO or EO to each. Mix well.

Add lye solution to rest of oils and bring to light trace.
Add 1 tablespoon White Kaolin Clay (Optional).
Pour 4 oz. soap into each bowl, one at a time. Mix well.

Pour into 6 individual molds.

NOTE: I get lovely colors. The clay seems to help keep colors true and stick the fragrance as well.
