    1. Awesome Faye! I bet you and the family are loving the homemade soap. This series is pretty much the basics for someone who has never made soap before. But I always love to talk soap making and I’ve done a lot of experimenting with it so if you ever have any questions let me know.

      1. I just read that you made a shampoo bar? That is something I want to try but have no clue what to put in such a bar! I have access to lard and tallow which I have been putting in my soap and I do like it. My son also wants me to try a beer soap and I might have to do that as my husband found some frozen cans of beer while on his walk today!


      2. I have always used castor oil, coconut oil and olive oil in the shampoo bar. High amount of castor oil seems to be the key to a good shampoo bar. I need to make some more and think I will experiment with some tallow and lard.
        The recipe I’m going to try is:
        12 oz coconut oil
        12 oz. castor oil
        15 oz tallow
        15 oz. lard
        20.5 oz water
        7.6 oz lye
        Of course it won’t be ready for a while but will let you know how it turns out.
        If you want my recipe with castor, olive and coconut oils let me know.
        I’ve not tried beer soap – please let me know how it goes and how you like it.


      3. This recipe makes quite a soft soap so I recommend lining the mold with plastic wrap otherwise it will not want to come out of the mold.
        20 oz. coconut oil
        29 oz olive oil
        13 oz castor oil
        8.61 oz. lye
        23.5 oz water ( sometimes I infuse the water with sage, rosemary and /or marshmallow root – all beneficial for hair growth) I do find that the infused water tends to bubble up more when adding the lye and also may change color. Kinda of cool.
        If this recipe is more than you want to make I’m sure you know you can cut it in half.


I would love to hear from you.
