I needed a break from sewing and decided to tackle a new soap. I had never made salt bars before and had heard that they were difficult to master. From al
l the articles I read most soapers use either 100% Coconut or real close to that for the lather. I have a hard time using that much coconut oil just for the fact it can be so harsh. So I went 40% Palm Kernel ( I Have A Ton Of Organic visit me at www.abodynatural
soap.com), 20% coconut, and then I split the difference between soy and olive. I was worried with it setting to quickly so I let the oils and the lye cool down to under a hundred (Plus this helps to create a light soap).
I decided I didn't want any colorings so that the pink in the Himalayan salt would be what gave it color. My son said it looked like a strawberry shake. Hmmm I scented it s
age but now maybe I should have scented it strawberry.
So far so good. I haven't cut it yet but I hear that it can set real hard so I will keep an eye on it.
