olive oil soap one tea spoon per litre water.
making soap using the cold process method.
The first thing you’ll need to start making soap is a recipe.
Because it takes time to cool, make your lye solution first, and set it aside in a safe place.
Weigh the distilled water
After you have weighed both the water and the lye, slowly add the lye to the pitcher of water. Be careful not to make any splashes. (You’re wearing your safety goggles, right?!)
Note: ALWAYS add the lye to the water, not the other way around. Adding the water to the lye can cause a volcano-like reaction in the pitcher.
Gently stir the mixture until the lye is completely dissolved.
The mixture will start to get hot, and may even begin to steam or make bubbling or boiling sounds. Just continue to stir until the solution is thoroughly mixed.
After stirring, put the lid on the lye-water pitcher and set it in a SAFE place to cool. The lye will be ready to use when it cools down to about 100 degrees.
Even though the lye-water is put aside, you still need to be safe.
