Ok so this is a soap I cook up to cleanse my skin. I thought the recipe is great for you guys to try out, just be carefull with the lye!
Ok so first we have our ingredients.

•6.5 oz. Olive oil (you can get it at a grocery store)
•4.4 oz. Sunflower oil (you can get it at a grocery store)
•4 oz. water
•1.5 oz. lye ( I got it at my Home Depot store, though you can find it online. It's fairly cheap!)
•1/2 oz. of fragrance oil or essential oil blend (At a local health food store, I enjoy Lavender!)
I also recommend adding a teaspoon of honey for moisture, or if you like a super decadent soap pop in 1 teaspoon of dark chocolate!

So Mix your lye solution first (lye into the water, never the water into the lye!) and set it aside to cool. When both the lye and the oils are at about 100-110 degrees, slowly pour the lye solution into the oils. Stir with a stick blender, alternating short blasts with the blender and stirring. Mix the soap until it reaches a light trace. Add the fragrance oil. Mix them into the soap thoroughly. Pour the raw soap into your mold and let it sit for 12-24 hours until it has cooled off completely and is hard enough to cut. Remove it from the mold and slice into bars. Let it cure an additional 2-4 weeks. Good Luck guys and tell me what you think! It's a very fun and easy process, just be carefull with the lye!
