Recipe #4

In case you don't have palm oil, or just want to keep things simple, just adding a bit of coconut oil to the olive, improves the lather greatly.

Recipe #4

  • 80% olive Oil
  • 20% coconut Oil
Or, to make about 4.5 lbs of soap, you would use:
  • 40 oz. olive oil
  • 10 oz. coconut oil
  • 16 oz. water
  • 6.9 oz. lye
  • Between 1.5 and 2.2 oz of fragrance or essential oil, according to your preference
Follow Basic Soap Making Instructions

Make sure that you run your recipe through a lye calculator to make sure that all of your measures are correct!

I hope you have great success with these recipes. If you've got a favorite Olive Oil soap recipe of your own that you'd like to submit, send it to me via the User Submission Form.
