Ginger Soap


This is a lovely and useful soap. I have a lot of friends who have diabetes who use thisfor feet and hands to help the circulation.
10 ounces Palm Oil
4 ounces Coconut Oil
2 ounces Olive Oil

2 ounces lye
4 ounces water

4 ounces ginger juice and water

Take a hand of ginger and run it through a juicer. Add the pulp back to the juice andenough water to equal 4 ounces. Mix lye and water. Set aside to cool.
Melt oils together, set aside to cool. When oils are at 110* and lye water is at 100*, gently pour lye into oils.
Add juice to mixture, stirring constantly. Mix until soap traces, pour into prepared molds,allow to stand covered and out of drafts for 48 hours. Remove form moulds, cut as needed, and allow to age open to air, 2-3 weeks.

Coffee Soap Recipe
18oz. Olive oil
6 oz. Crisco
9 oz. coconut oil
4.5 oz lye
12.3 oz water-to this I added 4 T instant coffee, and I used 6T used coffee grounds at trace.   Heat oils and place lye into water and stir with wooden spoon.  When both are hot to touch on outside of pan mix lye into oils and stir till trace.   Place in mold until firm.   Will remove the smell of onion and garlic from your hands.

Chocolate Soap

8 ounces shortening
6 ounces coconut oil
2 ounces olive oil
(2.34 lye for 5% excess fat), (2.2 for 8% excess fat) ounces lye
6 ounces  water
1/4 ounce unsweetened baking chocolate
2 ounces white chocolate
Melt fats, add chocolates.  Mix lye and water.  When fats and lye are 100 F stirred together, it looks curdled and separated.   Blend it up and pour it out.  Blender on low for 20 seconds.  Pour out.  Looks weird. Turns light then dark.  Smells like Devil’s Food Cake.

Honey Soap

12 oz veg shortening
4 oz coconut oil
1 oz beeswax
1 cup distilled water
2 oz lye
1/4 cup honey
Mix lye and water, allow to cool.  melt vegetable shortening. Over a double boiler, melt wax and coconut oil together  and keep warm.  When shortening is 120* and lye is 100*, pour lye mixture into shortening and stir until tracing occurs. Pour wax and oil mixture into soap mixture stirring constantly ( the mixture will get VERY thick with
the addition of the beeswax mix) When the beeswax mixture is completely blended, stir in the honey and pour into molds.  Unmold after 24-48 hours. Allow to age for 3 weeks.

Heat oils to 150 degrees F.  Add beeswax (you can grate it, chunk it, pre-melt it).  Cool to 115 degrees F.  Lye and water to about 110 degrees F.  Add lye/water to oils, at light trace, add the honey.  Stirtill well blended.  Pour no more than an inch deep.  Cover with Saran type wrap prevents soda ash). Don’t wrap with a blanket, just put a
cookie sheet over the top, as this will get warmer than soaps without honey. You can scent this as you like, add scents at light trace.
