Homebake – Coconut Soap

April 2, 2010

This easy recipe needs a little care as it uses a very strong alkali – Sodium Hydroxide! You can prepare your lye as per the instructions here and then use that in your soap making.  Just be very careful with your hands, eyes and worktops when preparing this as it is pretty fierce and NOT something that kids should use.

You can customise this soap recipe in many ways. The amount of Lye you need will depend on the oil or oil blend that you use.  Too much lye will give you a very hard and harsh soap and too little will lead to a wet, sloppy soap.  I found this website useful when calculating how much lye to use.
