Reflections on Bay Rum Sesame Oil

It’s funny. I didn’t intend to make Bay Rum Sesame Oil soap. I had some sesame oil laying around and figured to make some soap out of it before it expired. I hunted down a recipe and this was the easiest one I could find. Actually, it has turned out to be one of my best loaf-molded CP soaps so far. I rinsed the top to rid it of soda ash, but realized that made the whole thing kinda slimy and hard to handle in the bar-cutter. I will have to remember that next time. Anyhow, we’ll see how this one heals up. But its looking good so farIMG_3241

Ingredients:

Tallow 10 oz
Sesame seed oil(untoasted)6 oz
Olive oil 6 oz
Coconut oil 6 oz
Palm kernal flakes 6 oz
Castor oil 2 oz
Rice bran oil 1 oz
Lye (at 5% discount) 5.28 oz
*Water 14 oz OR 12.6 oz(discounted)
.5 to 1 oz Bay Rum FO
*For extra skin conditioning add use half water and half Goats milk or substitute all the water for goats milk.

Instructions:

Follow all usual soapmaking precautions and procedures. Keep temps low and watch this one closely because once it traces it goes fast(especially if you do a water discount). Add your FO at light trace to give yourself a little more time.
