Making Coconut Oil Soap

DSC_1039.JPG

You guys know how I love to make something out of nothing – or, at any rate, something useful out of something useless, right?

I had some very old coconut oil that had clearly outlived its fitness for human consumption. This gave me the all-clear for doing something I had wanted to try for a while: making coconut oil soap. Coconut oil is pricey, so I wouldn’t use it for soap when if we can eat it.

Unlike the previous time I had tried my hand at soap-making, I now have a digital kitchen scale, which made it a lot easier to follow this simple recipe. I also added a few drops of rosemary essential oil for a refreshing scent.

I used the cute little silicone molds I also use for candles. In the photo above, you can see my freshly unmolded pure coconut oil soap bars, which are now set to cure on a rack on top of my kitchen cabinets. I can’t wait for them to get ready so I can use them.

  1. Goodness! I’m w-a-a-y behind in my mail, but this soap recipe looks interesting. One of our granddaughters is looking to open her own housecleaning business, and I’ve forwarded this to her, as she wants to be know for “all natural” ingredients. I think this will be right down her alley.

    Thanks!
