Making Soap...My Try At It

Howdy ya'll!!! I am always trying to do some sort of DIY project. So, I thought I would love trying my hand at making soap. Well, I pretty much jumped right into it after watching a few how to videos. Today, I am sharing that experience with ya'll.


My mom told me that my grandmother use to make soap. I am learning a lot of things about my grandmother now that she passed on that I did not know. It sounds like she was a very talented woman. Very creative. So, maybe this is why I am so passionate for creating things. 

I had been wanting to try my hand making soap for sometime now. Yeah, I finally did it. I really enjoyed the process, but I must say it can be kinda intense. 



The first thing I did was to gather all of my supplies that I needed to make this happen. I did this very gradually. Below you can find the supplies that you will need.

Soap Mold
Digital thermometer
Digital Kitchen Scale
Stick Blender
Lye
Coconut Oil
Olive Oil
Almond 
Fragrance Oil
Mica

Next I decided to create my own recipe using the lye calculator.  And no, I did not know what I was doing...hahaha...but it worked out...I so glad it did...because those products are not cheap. You can go here and create your own recipe.






I don't know  about ya'll, but I am a visual kind of person. Seeing how something is done really helps me. So, instead of me trying to explain how I made soap...I am linking  videos that I found to be very helpful. 




My Recipe...I call it Creamy Peppermint (Very simple)

Lye (Sodium Hydroxide)  4.29 oz
Distilled water 8.91 oz
Coconut Oil 20oz
Sweet Almond Oil 6 1/2 oz
Olive Oil 1/2 oz
Creamy Peppermint fragrance oil


As always thanks so much for stopping by.

XO,

Trish
