In this recipe, I added canola oil to give it some creaminess and mildness. Plus, it's an inexpensive oil that's readily available in the supermarket.

 

Recipe #3

  • 60% olive oil
  • 10% palm oil
  • 20% coconut oil
  • 10% canola oil
Or, to make about 4.5 lbs of soap, you would use:

  • 5 oz. canola oil
  • 16 oz. water
  • 6.9 oz. lye
  • Between 1.5 and 2.2 oz of fragrance or essential oil, according to your preference
