Ingredients for Soap Making without Lye
The major raw material required to make your soap without lye is the soap base. This raw material comes in a block and there are different types of blocks that you can get. Some of these blocks contain aloe vera, olive oil and some have goat’s milk. These soap bases are designed to suit different types of skin so you might need to consider this factor. When you acquire your soap base, there are other supplies that are required in making your soap which include the following.
Large Pyrex Bowl
Moulds - If you use a bread mould pan, then you will also need a parchment paper to prevent the soap from sticking to the surfaces of the pan.
Herbs and Essential Oils
There are different types of herbs and essential oils and these help to give your soap different fragrances and qualities. The following are oil combinations that can work well for you and you must consider them in making soap since they substitute lye.
- Dried lavender with plumeria oil
- Peppermint essential oil together with activated charcoal
- Turmeric powder with thyme oil
- Honey and oatmeal
- Lavender Essential Oil and ground rosemary
- Wild Orange Essential Oil with ground cinnamon
- Rosemary essential oil with peppermint essential oil.
On top of any of these ingredients, you will also need some liquid that will help to prevent the soap from burning when you are melting it. Water can work well but the following liquids which include kombucha, coffee, green tea, coconut milk infused herbs and floral hydrosol can do better. When you have gathered all the ingredients, then you are ready to begin the soap making process.
