Re: How To Make Simple Soap

This is pretty interesting. Wonder if it could be made with olive oil? It 
probably wouldn't harden as well (if at all.) I don't carry lard or animal fat 
with me in the wild :-)

Re: How To Make Simple Soap

I believe the water and ash thing is to extract Lye (sodium hydroxide).
Yes you can use olive oil but the process is much longer (time) with olive oil.

Re: How To Make Simple Soap


Yes, water and hardwood ash is to produce lye.

You can indeed use olive oil, but the better soaps use a mix of oils. The soaps I make typically use a
combination of olive oil, vegetable shortening, palm oil, and coconut oil.

Erm.., I don't think the point is to carry oil or fat into the woods to make
soap, better to just carry soap. I think the point would be to make soap out
of the by-products of your subsistence in the wild, say by using animal fat
from animals that you have eaten? Skim the pot when you boil some meat for
example.
