0.55 oz Cocoa Butter
3.3 oz Coconut Oil
2.75 oz Olive Oil (pure)
3.3 oz Palm Oil
1.1 oz Sunflower Seed Oil
1.6 oz Sodium Hydroxide (lye)
3.6 oz Distilled Water
1 teaspoon Sodium Lactate
0.8 oz Honey Beeswax fragrance
SAFETY: Make sure goggles, gloves, and long sleeves are in place. Kids, pets, and other tripping/distraction hazards should be out of the house or not able to access your soaping space for at least an hour. Always soap in a well ventilated area.
ONE: Slowly and carefully add the lye to the water, and stir until clear. Set aside to cool. Add the Sodium Lactate to the cooled lye water and gently stir.
TWO: Melt and combine the Cocoa Butter, Coconut Oil, and Palm Oil. Add the Olive Oil and Sunflower Seed Oil and stir until combined.
THREE: Once the lye water and oils are at or below 120 degrees (and ideally within 10 degrees of each other), slowly and carefully pour the lye water into the oils. I like to pour down a spatula or the shaft of my stick blender to eliminate air bubbles. Give the mixture a couple swirls with the stick blender off, then turn the stick blender on and bring the soap to light trace.
FOUR: Add the Honey Beeswax Fragrance Oil and continue to blend with the stick blender until the fragrance oil is fully mixed in and the soap reaches medium trace.
FIVE: Pour the soap into each cavity of the mold. Tamp the mold on the table to eliminate air bubbles.
Optional: Spray the back of the soap with 91% Isopropyl (Rubbing) Alcohol and cover and insulate for 24 hours. Allow the soap to sit in the mold for at least 5 days before attempting to unmold.
