Easy Crisco Soap Recipe – Cold Process

3 lbs. Crisco (1 can)
6 oz. lye
12 oz. water

Melt/heat the Crisco in a enamel pan and place on stove to melt and heat.

Place cold water in a glass bowl and slowly add lye while stirring with a wooden. Stir until water is clear if you can.

When the Crisco and lye are warm to the touch, pour lye into Crisco while stirring. Keep stirring until you get trace.

Trace is when it thickens to the point where you can drop some of the mix back in to itself and it leaves a trail. At this point use any herbs, scent, or coloring and stir and pour mold(s). This recipe fits nicely in an 8×8 inch container, but other containers, such as pringles cans or specialty soap molds work just fine, too.

Put molds in a warm, insulated place, let set 24 hours and then cut. Place on to rack and let cure for 2-3 weeks.
