Had a Palm Free soap week….

13 Apr
Thank God it’s Friday!!!! Wahoo!!!!!
I’ve been soooo busy this week I can’t believe it. Here’s my newly listed soap on Etsy: Pink Himalayan Salt soap check it out I have a 10% sale going on just enter APRILSHOWERS at checkout.
Anyway, thought I show you something I did over the week. This is what I call “The Dino Palm Free Soap” and it all started like this……….
I measured the oils:
Then I added the Lye Solution:
Took my stick blender and blended:
Then I separated the mixture into 3 measuring bowls and added coloring:
After mixing the coloring, I started pouring into the mold:
Added a layer of Hawaiian Black Lava Salt:
Continued adding more soap then I took a squirt bottle and dotted the entire top of the Palm Free Soap:
AND drum roll Please!!!!!! Check this out!
I am so proud of myself. Do you see the bumps on top? Don’t they look like a dinosaur? This is the recipe I used to make it: (don’t forget to run this and any other recipe through a LYE CALCULATOR) and make sure you know about LYE Safety before starting!
Here’s the recipe: (makes a 2.5 lb. batch)
Distilled Water 430 grams
Lye 155.0 grams
Olive Oil 624. grams
Coconut Oil 227. grams
Sweet Almond Oil  227. grams
Cocoa Butter 57. grams

        I don’t understand how you used a squirt bottle to do that. What was IN the squirt bottle?
