Black Cocoa Butter Homemade Soap Recipe
Mold this soap how ever you like, or just cook it in the crock-pot and plop it into a bag when it’s cooled to use for chunking into future soap batches for added colour.
Black Cocoa Butter Soap
- 16oz Black Cocoa Butter
- 8oz Coconut Oil
- 8oz Olive Oil
- 12oz Water
- 4.36oz Lye
Follow basic soap making directions. I cooked this in the crock pot because I wanted to chunk it for other soap recipes. (I will be adding ‘how to’ make crock pot soap soon. Stay tuned.)
It comes out a dark brown colour.
It is also nice cut into larger pieces and polished. Here is a chunk I cut but haven’t polished it. There is a bit of blur and glare, I hope to have a few better pictures up soon.
SANDALWOOD SOAP WITH COCOA BUTTER CHUNKS
I made these soaps with a Sandalwood Essential Oil blend (I’ll be posting that here too as well as having some for sale, I have a lot of good stuff coming up!) and chunked some of the black cocoa butter soap into it to give it some character.
Nice for a man or a sultry lady (even if it’s just for a few minutes in the shower), but the big surprise for me is that kids seemed to like it when I had it at the farmer’s market. Go figure!
