Hi Kevin,Thanks for the question Sonia, although my name is Gavin. I will endeavour to share my soap recipe in this post that I developed myself. :-)
I Stumbled upon your blog last night when i decided it was time to do some research on making my own soap. Love your blog & all your links!
I just cannot bring myself to buy it (for obvious reasons) and my hubby has had enough of my soap stand-off!! I purchased some supplies online from aussiesoapsupply, & am very excited to get started. I loved watching your u-tube tutorial & was wondering if you may share the recipe that you are using?
makes about 1.5kg
300gm Olive Oil
300gm Rice Bran Oil
300gm Coconut Oil
100gm Sunflower Oil
140gm Sodium Hydroxide (lye/caustic soda)
25gm Fragrance Essential Oil (the choice is yours)
Soap colouring to your personal preference.
To put it all together, follow the video tutorial at this post titled "Soap Making", or the text tutorial at "Lather Up Folks!"
I find this soap recipe the right balance of bubbles, creaminess and moisturiser. Make sure that you cure the soap for at least 4 weeks before using it.
Enjoy and happy soap making!
