(Makes approx 4 lbs of soap)

by Sarah Varey


600 gr. Olive Oil

600 gr. Coconut Oil

600 gr. Rice Bran Oil

200 gr. Sunflower Oil

280 gr. Lye

760 gr. Water (with 1/2 Tbsp. paprika added)

1/2 Tbsp. Cloves (ground)

1 Tbsp. Cocoa Powder

1.75 oz 5 Fold Orange Essential Oil

0.4 oz Cinnamon Essential Oil

0.25 oz Clove Essential Oil


Melt oils together in one pot.

Mix the lye into the water (with paprika) into another pot.

When both reach 80 degrees, mix lye/water into oils using an immersion blender.

After the light trace is reached, measure out 1/2 of the soap mixture and add the ground cloves and cinnamon to half.

Add in essential oils, distributing evenly between the now brown and orange soap mixtures.

Blend until a nice trace occurs.

Layer soap into lined molds. Gently swirl together with a knife, being sure to reach all the way to the bottom of the mold.

Insulate molds for 48 hours.
