Soap with Ingredients from Cindy’s Cupboard 6

I’ve only received one soap request from the Quick Gifts from Your Cupboard blog post

Cindy wrote, “I want to make a soap that has great lathering capability, is long lasting, moisturizing, and feels good on the skin.” As Cindy has a fairly standard soap maker’s cupboard, I decided to make a recipe that used a little bit of Mink Oil as a special luxury oil.

Recipe in ounces:
6 ounces Olive Oil
5 ounces Palm Kernel Oil or Coconut Oil
4 ounces Palm Oil or Hydrogenated Soy
1 ounce Mink Oil

2.22 ounces Sodium Hydroxide for 6% Excess Fat
4-6 ounces Water

Recipe in percentages:
37.5% Olive Oil
31.25% Palm Kernel Oil or Coconut Oil
25% Palm Oil or Hydrogenated Soy
6.25% Mink Oil

q.s. Sodium Hydroxide for 6% Excess Fat
q.s. Water

Due to the current cold winter temperatures in Idaho, make this soap with a starting temperature of 130° F. Any additives of clays or botanicals can be added. I would make a test batch without any additives other than fragrance if desired so you can check the lather. Make the soap and when you cut it the next day, take a small bar or sliver off the sink and try it out!

I hope you enjoy this soap!

About Andee

Director of Happiness. I'm a thirty-something soap snob. I've grown up with handmade soaps, and I love them! I really like making lotions, soaps, and perfumes. I adore mixing scents to come up with something new. My favorite scent is either Wicked or Cotton Candy. I tend to hoard fragrances, I even have an Earl Grey Tea from the MMS catalog. I won't tell you how old it is, but it sure is good!

    I just made a batch of this. I used temps fo 106 degrees F however, as I don’t have good luck with having higher temps. It whipped up very easily and achieved trace at a nice time. I add some Litsea Cubeba EO to it and have it poured into the mold. I can hardly wait to see how it turns out tomorrow. Now, to make some lotions, balms, and other treasures! Oh, yeah, and some zoom balls! Cindy

    Cindy I love your soaps! I think Kitty has already ordered some for me! I plan to give them to my pastor,s wife and other friends at church! Can you send me a list of your products/prices so that I can show them at church? It might get you more orders, and I already know I will order more from you! I would much rather give gifts that are homemade, they are more special than what you get in a retail store! It is also special to me that I am buying from a new friend I met and like! Thanks Gloria I do not have email so am using Kitty,s!
