In case you’re interested, I have an affiliate store where I’ve listed all of the soap making supplies and materials that I purchase on Amazon:
If you use those links to buy anything, it won’t cost you anything extra, but I will receive a very small percentage of the sale. Every little bit helps, though, so thank you very much if you do! 🙂

**** RECIPE ****
Olive Oil – 40%
Coconut Oil – 25%
Organic Sustainable Palm Oil – 20%
Avocado Oil – 6%
Sunflower Oil – High Oleic – 5%
Castor Oil – 4%

For a Palm free recipe, I substitute Shea Butter (15%) and Cocoa Butter (5%) in place of the Palm Oil. I’ve used both recipes for feather swirls, and the palm free recipe works really well.

Superfat – 6%

Lye – use a soap calculator like the one at Majestic Mtn Sage (
I used a 33% lye solution (water = 2 x lye)

*** Great article on understanding water discounts and lye solutions – ***

Kaolin Clay – 2 tsp per 500g of oils –

COLORS:
Activated Charcoal –
Disperse 1 teaspoon activated charcoal in 1 tablespoon of sunflower oil. I then used about 1 teaspoon of the charcoal oil mixture per cup of soap (just enough to get the dark color I wanted).

Essential Oil Blend:
Lavender – 2 parts
Bergamot – 1 part
Patchouli – 0.5 parts
