Coconut Milk Soap Recipe

Coconut Milk Soap
Makes 8-10 bars

3 oz lye
8 oz coconut milk
10 oz extra virgin olive oil 
7 extra virgin organic coconut oil
3 oz all natural shea butter
3 Vanilla Beans (chopped)
1/2 cup Oatmeal
Essential Oil Blend (2 parts lavender, 1 part patchouli)

**TIP: When working with milk, whether it be goat's milk or coconut milk, add the lye to the milk little by little so you don't scorch the milk as the lye reacts with it. If you scorch it, you're soap will smell like you did! So give it a little extra time.

I havent tried any coconut milk soap recipe because I get "mixed messages" on the mixing of lye to milk! Some say to freeze the milk in ice cube trays and others say to just wait until other oils and lye come to trace THEN add the coconut milk! Help! I have had the coconut milk in the freezer for a week...because of all the different advice given to me online! :/
