4 lb batch
12 oz coconut oil
19 oz mid grade olive oil (not virgin or pomace)
12 oz castor oil
6 oz lye
16 oz distilled water
1/2 oz your favorite essential oil (If the bar is to be used by a pregnant woman DO NOT USE ROSEMARY)
1st in a metal pan combine the water and lye then rest of the oils (except essential) and heat to 100 degrees F. Stirring GENTLY and constantly with metal spoon. Once reaching the proper temperature add your essential and stir in completely.
Pour into mold(s)lined with saran wrap or vaseline. Insulate (cover) for 24 hours. Uncover and leave in mold until soap is hard enough to take out (usually 4-6 days). When hard enough remove from mold and cut into desired size bars. Allow to cure for 4-5 weeks. This soap remains soft for quite a considerable time longer than normal cold pressed soap. IT DOES EVENTUALLY HARDEN into nice bars. Enjoy!
