    Here's a good recipe

    Post by Bubbles Galore on Sat Oct 09, 2010 11:08 am

    I give everyone this recipe because it's a great starting point and makes lovely soap. I just use "as is" most of the time but sometimes I make it with goat milk or coconut milk.

    Olive Oil 390g

    Palm (Sustainable Ethical) 280g

    Coconut 280g

    Castor 50g

    140g Sodium Hydroxide (you should always check on Soap Calc)

    278g of water (20% discount)

    Enjoy! Very Happy

    I found the link so have linked directly to the thread on The Dish.

    Here is one that uses supermarket ingredients. You can use Copha as the coconut. It's a lovely soap. I was surprised. Shocked

    I made it with an 8% lye discount and a 20% water discount.

    thanks... I'm always looking for a good basic recipe that I can play with.
