Liquids

For the size of fat batch that you are using, we recommend that you use approximately 15 to 22 fluid ounces of liquid.

WARNING: Always add your solid form lye, sodium hydroxide or potassium hydroxide, to the liquid. If the liquid were added to the solid form lye a violent reaction could result. This means you could have a “volcano” erupt out of your container.

0% to 4% excess fat range: Proceed with caution! We do not recommend this unless actual saponification values are known and used.
5% to 8% excess fat range: This is the range we use most often.
9% to 10% excess fat range: Creates a softer soap because of the amount of excess fat.

I used 20 oz liquid, 10 oz Kombucha, 10 oz water

8.25 lye

This time I used lemon infused olive oil, lemon grass, rosemary
