Soap Recipes

Some "fruit cake" bars by a F&D Mold customer who has embedded some soap trimmings from prior batches in some new bars. Yummy!

These  recipes all assume that you already know the basics of soapmaking.

Mission Peak Soap’s Famous Recipes for
Easy Soap with Soybean Shortening
Using 64 ounces (4 LBS) of Oils

#1 :  Holiday Spice (100% essential oil soap)

Oils:
16 ounces coconut oil (find this in an East Indian food store, or Whole Foods market) or order it online here.
16 ounces corn oil
32 ounces vegetable shortening (soybean and/or a soybean/cottonseed oil mix)

Lye solution:
9 ounces of Sodium Hydroxide (NaOH)
18 ounces of distilled water

Fragrance:  4 ounces of 5-fold orange oil; plus 1/2 ounce of cinnamon leaf essential oil; plus 1/2 ounce of clove bud essential oil.

Other Additives: None.

Comments: Look for a quick trace once you have mixed the essential oils into your soap pot. Be ready to pour quickly! Finished color of this soap is yellow (from the orange oil)

 


two-toning

#2 :  Basic Lavender (100% essential oil soap)
 

Oils:
16 ounces coconut oil (find this in an East Indian food store, or Whole Foods market) or order it online here.
16 ounces corn oil
32 ounces vegetable shortening (soybean and/or a soybean/cottonseed oil mix)

Lye solution:
9 ounces of Sodium Hydroxide (NaOH)
18 ounces of distilled water

Fragrance:  4 ounces of lavender essential oil whisked into soap near trace.

Other Additives:  1 level TBS of ground, dried lavender buds, whisked into the soap near trace.

Comments:  Coloring is optional. Blue food color (1 tsp) often times turns out to be close to a lavender color in finished soap, but powdered oxides are more dependable.
 


Adding some dried herbs to the top of a fresh soap batch
in the famous F&D Mold, lined with freezer paper.


Removing freezer paper mold liner and un-molding two-toned  batch with dried herbs on top of soap. I think this was a combination of some type of mint (the white part) and lemon.
