Nuts Over You Homemade Cold Process Soap Recipe

My Nuts Over You Homemade Cold Process Soap Recipe is all about using natural nut oils! And you would certainly be hard pressed to get a homemade soap bar any nuttier than this one!

This homemade cold process soap recipe includes macadamia nut, hazelnut, sweet almond, walnut oil and coconut oil in addition to coconut milk powder. I then scented it with a coconut lime verbena fragrance oil though you can substitute with your favorite skin safe fragrance oil or essential oil at half the amount.

Ingredients:

7.2 oz. macadamia nut oil
3.6 oz. hazelnut oil
5.4 oz. sweet almond oil
1.8 oz. cocoa butter
3.6 oz. walnut oil
1.8 oz. shea butter
1.8 oz. sesame oil
10.8 oz. 76° melt point coconut oil
2 oz. stearic acid

12 oz. distilled water
5.1 oz. lye/sodium hydroxide pellets

1/2 Cup coconut milk powder
2 oz. fragrance oil

Directions:

To create this homemade cold process soap recipe you’ll need to follow my basic cold process soapmaking instructions.

Begin by measuring out the water into a large Pyrex measuring cup or heat proof pitcher. Next, using a digital scale weigh out the lye then slowly pour the lye into the water. Mix until all the lye has dissolved then set the lye-water aside in a well ventilated area to cool.

Now weigh out the soapmaking oils, shea and cocoa butters, and stearic acid and combine in a large stainless steel pot. Heat over medium heat on the stove until all the ingredients have melted then set aside to cool.

Once the soapmaking oils and lye-water have reached around 95°-100°F you’re ready to make soap!

Begin by adding the coconut milk powder to the soapmaking oils and mix well. Then slowly pour the lye-water into the soapmaking oils and mix with a stick blender adding the fragrance at trace.

Pour the soap into your prepared mold, cover and insulate. Twenty-four hours later you can unmold your soap loaf and cut it into bars. Allow the soap to cure 4-6 weeks before use for optimal results.

This homemade cold process soap recipe will fit into one of my easy DIY Wooden Loaf Soap Molds. The final loaf will yield anywhere from 10-12 bars of handmade soap depending on how thick you cut them. You can learn how to make a soap loaf cutter here for even bars.
