Make your own soap at home using the cold process method



100% Olive oil soap is a pure soap that has no additives; it nourishes and conditions the skin leaving it soft and supple.  Olive oil soap has a creamy lather rather than a bubbly lather and takes a long time to harden, but once it does harden it is a super soap that you will enjoy using.

Things you will need




 Distilled water 190 grams

 Lye crystals   64.35 grams

 Olive Oil 500 grams


1) Add the lye to the water and stir until dissolved. Set to one side (in a safe place)

2) Heat the oil up for 1 to 2 minutes.

3) Allow both mixtures to cool to approximately 130 °F / 54 °C (use a digital thermometer for a more accurate result)

4) Once both mixtures are cooled add the lye mixture to the oil and stir for around 5 minutes by hand to ensure as much of the ly comes into contact with the oil. After this you can mix with a handheld mixer / blender until the mixture meets trace (like a vanilla pudding consistency).

5) Add thickened mixture to your molds and set aside to set. This can take longer than usual soap making; it can take up to 2 weeks for the soap to be firm enough to de-mold and then a further 4 weeks to cure. The longer the better because this makes the soap super hard and it lasts longer when being used.

This is a simple soap recipe that you can make at home easily that you will enjoy using once its cured and ready for use.
