Weigh Your Oils

The Soap Making Oils

Put your soap pot or glass pitcher onto the scale and zero out the weight.

Following your recipe carefully, weigh the oils one by one into the pot or pitcher. Be sure to zero out the weight after you've measured each oil.

Pour slowly. You can always add a tad more...but once the oil has been added, it's part of the mix, and can't be backed out.

Tip: Weigh your solid soap making oils like Coconut, Palm, Cocoa Butter or Shortening into your soap pot. Weigh the liquid oils like olive, sunflower, canola or castor separately into the glass pitcher or pot.
