Five more lovely lard soap recipes

Updated on July 5, 2016

Lovely lard soaps!

Lard is one of the most traditional ingredients in soap making. It also makes a hard, white, creamy bar of soap. Lard soap works best with other oils, mainly vegetable, to keep it nourishing, and not to hard for your skin. Lard is one of the cheapest ingredients out there that you can find for soap making, that and palm oil, but lard is still typically cheaper.

These recipes are all made using the cold process process, which means you will be using lye in these soap recipes. Lye is a very dangerous chemical to be working with, and you want to use it in a well ventilated area, away from animals and children. Also wear gloves and eye protection when using. If you haven't already read my original 5 lovely lard soap recipes there will be a link below, and if you don't know how to use the cold process method I will also link a tutorial.
