Orange Eucalyptus Cold-Process Soap
  • Coconut Oil (76°) = 10.56 ounces
  • Vegetable Shortning = 10.56 ounces
  • Olive Oil (Pomance*) = 10.88 ounces
  • Lye = 4.53 ounces
  • Water = 10.56 ounces
  • Valencia Orange Essential Oil = 1/4 tsp
  • Eucalyptus E.O. = 1/4 tsp
  • Lime E.O. = 1/8 tsp

First thing first. (after getting everything out and preparing my molds). 
Measuring out the oils: Coconut oil & the vegetable shorting are slightly solid and room temp. 
The olive oil I used was infused with Annatto/Achiote seed this is whats gives in it the Orange color.

Measuring out the Lye.

 *Pictures not taken*
Added Lye to water in steel pot.
Added Oils to Lye mixture.
 Mixing until almost trace
 Adding Valencia Oil, Eucalytus & Lime Essential Oils.
 After mixing. Adding to soap mold. (It's a bit thicker than I'd prefer here)
Added leftover soap in Silicone Ice tray & yogurt cup (I greased with Vaseline)

The next day I removed from molds & sliced the loaf.
