Some weeks ago, Susi, from susilk.etsy.com , contact with me trough etsy.com. We talk several times about our respectives etsy shops and the way we can do to improve our shops. In one of this talks I promise her a simple recipe to do soap and finally here is:

Simple Recipe for Natural Soap:

What you need?:

  • 210 gr of olive oil
  • 180 gr of coconut oil
  • 210 gr of palm oil
  • 84 gr of sodic hidroxide (NaOH)
  • 230 gr of mineral water
  • gloves
  • blender
  • glass container (never use aluminium)

How to proced:

Put the sodic hidroxide and the water in the glass container, remove and leave cool for 2 or 3 hours.

Past this time, put the oils in the blender container and add the caustic solutions gradually and blend for 10 or 20 minutes until the solutions appear like a sauce. This situation is called “trace” for all soapmakers.

At this moment you can put the essential oils or fragance. Do it with care, an remove with a spatula. No more than 30 gr of essential oil for every kilo of soap.

Put the soap in molds and covers with a blanket for 24 hours. Past this time, unmold the soap and leave repose for 3 weeks in a cool, dry place.

Pass this time you can use your fist natural soap! I hope you enjoy!
