Palm FREE Soap Recipes are one of the Most sought soap recipes.
So, I’ve decided to post another GREAT Palm Free recipe!
 

If you’ve never made soap before Id suggest reading Smart Soapmaking  by Anne L. Watson it’s a GREAT starter book.

If you’re not new to soap making don’t forget to run this and any other recipe through a Lye Calculator  and it’s always nice to brush up on Lye Safety!

PALM FREE

Now onto the PALM FREE Soap Recipe:

Coconut Oil   397 grams

Olive Oil  284 grams

Cocoa Butter 227 grams

Avocado Oil 170 grams

Beeswax  57 grams

LYE 159 grams

Distilled Water 390 grams

You’ll want to melt the Coconut Oil. Then Slowly Melt the Cocoa Butter & Beeswax into the warm Coconut oil.

Stir until the Cocoa Butter & the Beeswax are fully melted. Then add the Olive and Avocado oils…

Remember have fun! Let me know how it turns out:)

YES! We ALL made it through another week.
Weekends are always a good thing don’t ya think? Well,  Tomorrow we’ll be at the Boonton Farmers Market !
Hopefully the weather will change. Because right now it’s been raining and raining and raining. There’s something you should know about rain and soap (they don’t mix)…You really don’t want bubbles on the bars when you’re trying to sell them. LoL
 
Hope you have a GREAT WEEKEND! (Sorry, if you work on weekends)
 
Now. for the pics!
