I have already posted a cucumber soap recipe, but this one is different and also worth experimenting with, so here it goes:
Cucumber Soap Recipe
15 oz Sunflower oil
30 oz Coconut oil
27 oz Olive oil
21 oz Palm oil
5 oz Shea butter
18 oz cucumber juice (juicer works perfect)
19 oz Water
14.1 oz Lye
f/o if desired
What I do, is I get my juicer out and I juice them cucumbers up and pour until I have my 18 oz of juice. Then I put this in a small pitcher, and set aside while I start the rest of my stuff.
While my oils and lye is cooling I then add my coloring and my fragrance oil right to the pitcher with the cucumber juice in it, stir well and set aside once again… I think I add about .8 to 1oz of fo for the whole recipe. But I do have a very strong cuc FO so I don’t need much.
Now go back and add your lye water to your oils, and stir it until light trace, that is when you add your pitcher of cucumber, fo and coloring and finish mixing until you have a full trace, then pour.
