Lye Free Soap Recipe

Handmade Soap Without Lye
This recipe lets one make homemade soap without lye, using the handmilled soap making technique. 
This technique makes a wonderful homemade soap without the need to measure all sorts of ingredients. 
This technique is so easy to do that even a child can make handmilled soap using this method.


Using a cheese grater, grate the soap into shreds. Using a double boiler or a pot placed in a larger pot of 
water, heat the sweet almond oil and milk using a pot placed in water that is simmering but not that is 
not boiling.

Once your sweet almond oil and milk is heated well, add a few soap shreds and stir with a wooden spoon 
until the shreds have melted. Continue adding soap shreds until all shreds are completely melted. Finally 
add your FO or EO, plop the hot mixture into your mold (A pringles can works well). Place waxed paper on 
top of the soap once it’s in the mold, and using a towel, press down to press it down gently until all air 
bubbles have been pressed out of the soap.

Let cool, cut and enjoy!
