Shea Monkey Fart's Supreme

I chose to make my second batch of soap in a crockpot as I did my first.  Its one of the ways to Hot Process soap vice Cold Process.  It's acroynm is CPHP - Crock Pot Hot Process.  One of these days I am going to try CPOP - Cold Process Oven Process.  You can make bigger batches that way as you shouldn't fill your crock pot more than 1/2 full or you may have a bubble over.  I had a bubble over last night even though it was only half full but I didn't keep an eye on it.  I had wandered into the living room.  Bad Donnita!!  

The recipe I made is as follows.  I use some animal fats in my soap.  This time I used some beef tallow.  Most folks that make homemade soap to sell don't as many people are either vegan or don't understand the wonderful soaps animal oils make.  But since I make it for me I do what I want.  I made a 2 lb of Oil batch and molded in my 3 lb log mold I got from a lovely Etsy seller.  Her dad makes these molds.  


25% Coconut Oil - 8 Ounces
8% Castor Oil - 2.56 Ounces
