Peppermint Castille Soap

23.5 oz Olive Oil
8oz Palm Oil (also called Vegetable Shortening in the supermarket)
8oz Coconut Oil
2oz Apricot Kernel Oil
2oz Avocado Oil

13.35oz Water
5.9oz Lye

4oz peppermint
2oz tea tree
1 tsp green gel colour (or other color)

I like to make this swirled in color. Once the mixture begins to trace, add fragrance and separate around 1/4 to 1/2 the mixture. Add green coloring to one portion. Pour the remaining into a loaf or tray mold and drizzle the green mix on top. Take a chopstick and draw lines through the tray (make sure you touch the bottom) to swirl in the green color.
