Make your own Olive Oil Soap

Categories:

Olive Oil Soap

 

Ingredients:

 

700g Palm Kernel Oil

200g Olive Oil

100g Coconut Oil

140g Caustic Soda

 

Heat Palm kernel, Olive and Coconut Oils slowly to melt together and cool until 45 °C.

In a separate container, add caustic soda to 320 tap water. Be careful not to allow mixture to contact skin or eyes.

When caustic soda has cooled down to 45 °C pour into Oil mix.  (Take note: Both have to be 45 °C when added together)

Now would be the time to add in any herbs or aromatic oils you desire.  If using essential oil add in 35ml.   And whizz with a stick blender in the same direction.

Pour into clean moulds (Use plastic/wood – NOT stainless steel moulds).

Leave to set for 8 hours and then can be cut if in a long mould.

Soap should be given 6 weeks to harden but can be used before.  Just means it’s softer.
