Oat and Honey Castile Soap

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.

    Made this soap today, and am worried about how soft it is. Just wondering if the castor oil may be the cause of the softness of the soap. It seems I read somewhere that castor is very conditioning, but too much can make the soap soft. I hope it will harden with time. If not, I might try again with less castor oil.

  3. What was your method? I am researching to make a batch of this type of soap and so far, I see that the honey and oat flour should be added at the END of the cook? These bars look yummy!

    Since the recipe has oil other than olive, it should be called Bastille, not Castile.
