Step 1 – Create your lye solution. Set it aside to cool down.
Step 2 – Weigh out the coconut oil and melt.
Step 3 – Weigh out the avocado oil into the melted coconut oil.
Step 4 – Let your oils and lye solution cool to under 90 degrees F.
Step 5 – Add your fragrance oils to the melted oils.
Step 6 – Combine your lye solution and oils. Emulsify your soap.
Step 7 – Pour off about 1/8 cup of soap and color with pink mica.
Step 8 – Add sea salt to your uncolored soap and bring to medium trace.
Step 9 – Double pour into your molds as shown in the video.
Step 10 – Let your soap saponify overnight.
After 24 hours, cut your soap and let it cure for 4-6 weeks. The longer you let cure, the milder your salt bars.
This is cute I will Pin
I love this recipe! I have used it several times. Can you add additives like tussah silk and kaolin clay?
Is this soap meant to be granular? my first salt soap so just curious about texture in end product
I LOVE THIS RECIPE! I MADE MY BARS AND EVEN THOUGH I DIDN’T HAVE THE FINE SALT I JUST USED THE SMALL HIMALAYAN SALT AND I MAKE DUE BY SUDSING MY TOWEL AND THEN APPLYING TO MY SKIN (TO AVOID SCRATCHING AND ITS AMAZING! ILL JUST MAKE SURE MY NEXT BATCH IS MADE WITH FINE SALT 🙂 THANK YOU!!! I ALSO WANT TO TRY IT AS A BRINE.
Instead of fragrance oil can I use essential oil. Is it the same amount?
i made my first salt bar 3 months ago and finally used it. I find that salt to be really scratchy… I can’t i make it less coarse
I just wanted you to know that I tried your recipe and my soap looks soooooo beautiful! It’s going to be really hard to be patient for six weeks. I used a different fragrance oil (Abalone from Wholesale Supply) and Mermaid Blue mica (Brambleberry). The Abalone smells wonderful. Like an ocean/spa type scent. Not fishy as the name suggests. LOL! I used the round molds like you suggested and this went soooo much better.
