In under fifteen minutes, Roe Sie, from the King's Roost, shows you how to make a basic bar soap from scratch, using only organic olive and coconut oils, lye, and ice water.


Organic olive oil: 1,680 grams
Organic coconut oil: 683 grams
Lye: 337 grams
Ice water: 787 grams

Add essential fragrant oils to make it smell even better-- we used vanilla and sandalwood this time. DELISH. It's a fast and fun DIY project; it makes a great gift, and it feels awesome to use homemade soap instead of a lot of weird chemicals on your body. Get creative with your essential oil blends, add seeds, grains, mica and flower petals, and please let us know which combinations you love!

Take the safety precautions seriously-- use protective eyewear, cover up all skin, and handle the caustic lye with extreme care. Keep all ingredients away from kids and pets. And use a gram scale to be accurate in getting your lye, water, and oil ratios exactly right. The water measurement includes any ice you use. I use about half ice and half water, and measure it by weight to equal 787 grams. It's important not to be sloppy and no guesswork here, please.

The process is pretty fast, especially once you've done it a few times and have the hang of it. But be sure to let your soap cure (dry out) for 4-6 weeks so it doesn't turn into a slimy goopy mess in the shower... or, worse yet, irritate anyone's skin.
