Basic 3 Oil Soap Recipe

48% Crisco
25% olive oil
25% coconut oil
No palm oil, no castor oil...just those three oils.

Now for measurements--

9.4 oz. Crisco (or vegetable shortening)
6 oz. olive oil
6 oz. coconut oil
8 oz. water
3 oz. lye
.9 oz. of fragrance oil or essential oil blend

How to ---

THIS WILL MAKE A 2lb Batch like Im showing in my pic except thats 2 batches one with scent and one without ;)

1-assemble all of your equipment and ingredients.
mix your lye solution and set it aside to cool.
Measure and heat your solid oils until completely melted.
Measure and add the liquid oils to the melted solid oils.
When both the lye and the oils are at about 100-110 degrees, slowly pour the lye solution into the oils. Stir with a stick blender, alternating short blasts with the blender and stirring.
Mix the soap until it reaches a light trace.
Add the fragrance oil.
Mix them into the soap thoroughly.
Pour the raw soap into your mold and let it sit for 12-24 hours until it has cooled off completely and is hard enough to cut.
Remove it from the mold and slice into bars. Let it cure an additional 2-4 weeks.

***** NOTE***** Lye is caustic make sure to mix your lye and water with rubber gloves and goggles and outside it produces a hot toxic gas to inhale in your house thats why its best to do it outside then bring it in.... Also please make sure you let this cure fully 100% because if not cured the lye is still active and can burn your skin.. once the lye is cured it is no longer active.
