At the request of a subscriber, I used 100% coconut oil for my base oils to make this single oil cold process soap. Thank you so much for watching, liking, & subscribing! 🙂

The first time I made this recipe, the soap overheated during saponification and cracked down the top (even uninsulated with no lid on the log mold). So with this batch, I just put the mold in the freezer (with no lid) and left it overnight.

**** RECIPE ****
Coconut Oil – 100%

Superfat – 20%

Water = 2 x sodium hydroxide (33% lye solution)

To calculate the sodium hydroxide for your specific recipe size, you can use a soap calculator like the one at Majestic Mountain Sage:

Pink Kaolin Clay (aka Rose Clay)
1 teaspoon hydrated clay per cup of soap

My recipes are listed in percentages so you can adjust them to fit your specific mold size. If you need help converting the percentages to grams or ounces, here’s a great article from Lovin’ Soap:

DISCLAIMER: I make these videos to share my own personal methods and techniques for how I make cold process soap. These videos are not intended as tutorials for beginners. These videos are intended for those who already have an understanding of cold process soap making. Cold process soapmaking has many variables and involves working with sodium hydroxide (NaOH, also referred to as lye). Lye and raw soap can damage your eyes and burn your skin. When making soap, you should already know and practice lye safe handling procedures and always wear safety gear. While I hope you find watching my videos helpful or entertaining, so many variables go into making soap and even the smallest change can greatly affect the results; therefore, I am not liable or responsible for your results if you try any of the methods or techniques that I use in my videos.
