Single Oil Soap – Avocado Oil
|I have been loving learning about all of the different properties oils contribute to a bar of soap. I decided that I wanted to try Avocado next. I must admit, I did get a bit of a surprise after is was in the mold! Come join me as we learn about Avocado Oil Soap!Needed Materials
Weigh the Avocado Oil into a microwave safe container. Heat until warm. This took about 2 1/2 minutes for me. Add the lye to the water to for a lye solution. Mix the oils and lye solution and blend until trace is achieved. Pour into a mold and allow to sit for 24 hours. Enjoy!
I didn’t have any accelerated trace or any other problems when mixing the soap. However, after 24 hours when I went to cut it, it was like sliding a knife through room temperature butter! I must say, it did startle me. I have never worked with a soap that has done that!
When I washed with a small sample of this soap, it felt really creamy but I didn’t get any lather. While I was using it though I did think it would make a nice scrub. I may have to try that. Would you make a scrub with Avocado Soap?
