We’ll be making the following soaps:
The type of soap Grandma made is called "Cold Process"* It is made by combining fatty acids and sodium hydroxide (lye) together. Fatty acids can be almost any oil - from beef tallow to olive oil to hemp oil. The combinations for making your own personal recipe are endless. Cold process soap making is a combination of an art and science.
