Clean & Sanitize your work area and all of your packaging materials. It is suggested that you wear gloves, protective clothing, a face mask, safety glasses, and a hair net while preparing this recipe.
Before attempting to make any cold process soap, please become familiar with soap making safety.
Start by measuring your distilled water into a glass or plastic container.
Then weigh out your lye and slowly stir it into the water until dissolved.
In a stainless steel pot, weigh out the coconut oil, olive oil, palm oil, and shea butter. Heat on the stove until fully melted then set aside to cool.
Weigh out your fragrance/essential oils and measure out the pumice and set aside.
Once your lye water and oils have reached about 100F you can begin mixing. Slowly pour your lye water into the melted oils. Then mix well using a stick blender. Once your soap has reached a thin trace, stir in the fragrance/essential oils and fine ground pumice. Continue stirring until thoroughly mixed and trace is achieved.
Pour into your mold, cover, and insulate.
You can unmold your soap 24 hours later and cut into bars to cure. Wait 3-4 weeks before use.
