    Sharon123's Note:

    This is a lovely hard soap with a creamy texture and is good for all skin types. This recipe uses lye which is poisonous, so be careful! You should also have a basic knowledge of soapmaking or a good book to explain basic steps. This soap takes 4 weeks to cure. I got this recipe from The Handmade Soap Book.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Grease a shallow square or oblong mold.

      Place the fat, base oils and beeswax in a stainless steel or enamel pot over a low heat.
    3. 3
      Pour the water into a heavy glass or plastic bowl or pitcher.
    4. 4
      Wearing rubber gloves and eye protection, add the sodium hydroxide (caustic soda/lye) to the water and stir until dissolved.
    5. 5
      When the oils have melted, remove them from the heat.
    6. 6
      Place one candy thermometer in the oils and one in the caustic solution.
    7. 7

    10. 10
      Stir occasionally until the mixture reaches trace (mixture thickens to the point where you can trickle some soap off the back of a spoon or spatula and it will leave a trace line on the surface of the mixture. This is called"trace").
    11. 11
      This should take about 20 minutes.
    12. 12
      Add the honey and stir well.
    13. 13
      Pour immediately into the mold and cover with a towel or blanket.

      This was my first try at making soap! I truly loved it! I used this recipe as a basic soap. Which I think it was more then that.I then made a hand milled soap buy grating and adding patchouli oil to it as well as ground almond.I must say I`m silky soft and smell good!
