How to Make Hot Process Soap – Step by Step

Post to Twitter



I thought I would share a video that would help you make a hot process soap like I make. I make soap to support a nonprofit farm to help feed the hungry…. Soap for Hope if you will. The farm we support is my nonprofit farm called Lighthouse Food Farm. The name of our soap business is Backwoods Country Soap, we have a Facebook page as well for both the farm and the soap business. Here are th9ose links as well… Find Lighthouse Food Farm on Facebook and here where you can Find Backwoods Country Soap on Facebook. I welcome you to drop by¬† to see our pages and click “Like” on our pages.


Soap Recipe:

25.6oz Olive Oil (I am using extra virgin but you may use pomace olive oil or another grade of olive oil. Be sure it is not an olive/canola blend as this will change the lye required.)
6.4oz Coconut Oil
11oz Distilled Water
4.4oz Lye, 99% pure
1oz Mango butter
1.5oz fragrance and/or essential (blend)
3ml diluted lab color (optional)

After the soap is cut, allow it to air out for a few days. Hot process soap does not require several weeks of cure time like cold process.

Thank you for stopping by to visit our blog.
