5 Natural Soaps, Plus a DIY Recipe

17 fl oz Olive Oil 10 1/2 oz Coconut Oil 7 oz Palm Oil 5 oz Lye (Sodium Hydroxide/Caustic Soda) 13 fl oz Water 1 oz (2 tbsp) Essential Oil or Fragrance Oil (Optional) Additives such as lavender flowers (optional)


1. Gather your ingredients and tools. Line your soap mold with freezer paper, shiny side to face the soap.

2. Place a stainless steel pot on a digital scale and measure your solid oils. Use the tare button on your scale as you add each one.

3. After you’ve measured the solid oils, warm the pot over low heat for the solid oils to melt.

4. Measure your lye (sodium hydroxide) carefully into a bowl.

5. Measure your water.

6. Pour your water into a heat-resistant bowl. Then pour your lye into the bowl of water. Stir. It will have a chemical reaction, giving off fumes and heat. After a minute or two the water will turn clear. Use hot pads if you pick up the bowl. Consider wearing glasses and rubber gloves as a safety precaution.
