Make your own Olive Oil Soap

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.
