How To Make Honey Nut Crunch Soap:
- 19.2 oz soybean oil
- 8.6 oz coconut oil
- 3.2 oz olive oil9.6 oz distilled water
- 4.8 oz lye
- 1 oz beeswax
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 tsp salt
- 0.5 oz almond oil
- 0.5 oz honey fragrance oil
- Rubber gloves
- Safety goggles
- Silicone soap mold
- Large stainless steel/enamel pot
- Weighing scales
- Hand stick blender
- Two large plastic pitchers
- Two thermometers
- Two wooden spoons
- Measuring cup, 2 or 3-cup size
- Freezer paper
- Piece of cardboard to fit the mold as a lid
- Gather up your ingredients and weigh everything out, pouring the lye into one of the pitchers and the distilled water into the other. Gradually, add the lye and the salt to the water, stirring continuously. When the mixture is dissolved, set it to one side.
- In the meantime, line your soap mold with freezer paper and gather up your oils. Reserve the essential oils and honey but add the rest to your enamel or steel pot. Heat the oils until they reach between 100 and 110 degrees F.
- Measure the temperature of the lye mixture and when it reaches between 90 and 95 degrees F, add it to the oils and stir. When the soap batter reaches a light trace – or begins to leave tracks, add the essential oils, fragrance oils and honey. Continue to mix by hand or switch to the stick blender for convenience.
- Pour the mixture into your soap mold, cover with the cardboard lid and place in the refrigerator for 24 hours to prevent discoloration. After this time, remove the mold from the refrigerator, take off the lid and let the soap air dry a few hours longer.
- When the soap is set, turn it out on to an open drying rack and let it cure for between four and six weeks.
