I while ago I made an easy "lime in the coconut" soap with coconut oil, shredded coconut, and lime EO.  Unfortunately, it didn't smell like coconut at all.  So take two, I got the Coconut Cybilla from Brambleberry and made this!  


70 oz Olive oil
30 oz coconut oil
30 oz palm oil
10 oz shea butter
13 oz coconut milk
4 oz homebrewed beer (boiled into a syrup and cooled) - my friend made it from hops she grew!
33 oz water
19.31 oz lye
tablespoon of paprika
Coconut scent
Lime EO
Grapefruit EO

This is my first attempt at a coat hanger swirl..  if I did it again, I'd swirl a little harder haha Smiley

Actually, to be truthful, this was my first attempt at the coconut scented soap..  whoops!

I made a Brazilian yellow clay embed the week before, but the batch itself thickened CRAZY fast..  like zero to cheesecake in 15 seconds!  I ended up shoving the base into the molds with my gloved hands and it came out looking like a foot :-/   I actually nicknamed it "Ugly Coconut."

thanks for looking!

I've had trouble with coconut before too! Maybe it's just a problem fragrance! Cheesy
