To begin, you will need to gather the ingredients that you will need. This includes cold-pressed virgin coconut oil, olive oil, lye, distilled water, and essential oils or fragrance oils. You will also need a few other items such as a thermometer, a stainless steel pot, and a mold.
Before you begin, you will need to make sure that you have all of your safety equipment on. This includes safety glasses, gloves, and a mask.
Once you have all of your ingredients and safety measures in place, you can begin making your vegan bar soap. Start by combining the coconut oil and olive oil together in a stainless steel pot. Next, measure out the lye and the distilled water and mix together until the lye is completely dissolved.
Once the lye and water mixture is ready, slowly pour it into the pot containing the coconut oil and olive oil. Use a stick blender to mix the ingredients together until all of the lye is dissolved and the mixture has reached a thick and creamy consistency.
Once the soap mixture is ready, you can add any fragrances or essential oils that you would like to your soap. Make sure to mix them in thoroughly and then pour the mixture into the mold. Let the soap sit in the mold for 24-48 hours until it has hardened.
