OK so I am on a soap making frenzy. I looked up hot process soap and found this yummy looking recipe.
This soap has only 4 ingredients in the basic soap and then you add honey and oatmeal.
Kaleb’s HP Oat-N-Honey Castile
(great for crock pot HP)
- 32 oz. olive oil (not pomace)
- 3 oz. castor oil
- 4.50 oz. lye (about 5% superfatting)
- 12 oz. water
- 3 Tablespoons of honey
- 3 Tablespoons of oat flour and 3-4 Tablespoons of water
I used my Ninja to make the oatmeal flour. You just put some oatmeal in, turn it on and out comes flour. I made about 1/2 cup and will save the rest for future recipes.
I cooked mine for an hour on low which is what the other recipes I use call for and it was perfect. I poured mine into a 2 loaf pans but should have used just one. The bars are a little smaller.
Others have posted that this soap smells wonderful. It maybe my sniffer but I can’t smell the honey, maybe when I use it. It does seem softer than my other soaps but hoping it will harden as it dries. Castille soap is supposed to be very hard.
Would love to hear from others who have made this soap and used it.
