Subject: easy recipe for no lye soap
Heat a quartered, unscented, clear glycerin
(I use Clearly Natural)soap bar in a plastic container,
in a micro for 1-2 min(or double boiler),stir, add scents/oils,
food color, leaves, petals, orange rinds, lavender etc. Pour into lightly oiled mold.
Stir carefully so it doesn't froth.
You can add about 1 tablespoon of water for each bar, too.
It seems to mix better.
I tried cheaper brands of glyc soap, but they went chunky.
Now I am going to try and make my own glycerine soaps.(Yes, lye)
I like yogurt containers as molds.
The flexible metal pastry molds work well. A tuna tin.
Actual plastic seems to work best for me. I even covered some sea shells with liquid rubber compound and made beautiful shell soaps, details and all. I oiled the molds after I took them off the shells.
