Here is the olive oil and coconut oil soap I made.
I got the recipe from
It was very dangerous as I was mixing caustic soda and oil but what a thrill to be making and using our own chemical free soap. Just to verify, all soap needs caustic soda but once it is mixed with oil and left to harden, all the chemical leaves the soap. I made some into liquid soap and i also had a go at shampoo. I am still working on this recipe though.
I am itching to have a go at some lovely smelly soap next, maybe chamomile, citrus. I would love to make some lovely molds too.
