I just found this here - I have the recipe.  It's for "Simple HP Bar Soap" - Batch size 2#/ Water: 38% / Super Fat/Discount: 6%

 

Water 12.16 ounces or 344 grams

Lye (NaOH) 4.45 ounces or 126 grams

 

Oils:

Coconut, 76 deg - 8 ounces or 227 grams

Crisco - 18 ounces or 510 grams

Canola - 6 ounces or 170 grams

Total Oils:  32 ounces or 907 grams

 

Hope this helps!

Hi Marjo!  Sorry, I didn't see this until today!  I have only made three batches of soap so far, the first one was the very first one that Suzanne posted.  I think it was called "sugar dreams" or something like that.  I really liked that one - it has a little sugar in it and it's a creamy white, it's a simple soap and I didn't use any essential oils or perfumes.  The second one was at the retreat and my husband liked that one a lot.  I didn't like it as well because it was scented.  I guess I prefer an unscented soap!  The last batch was Susanne's Chocolate Spa Soap - it came out great looking but I have no idea if I like it because I gave it all away!  Have you made any yet?
