A soap that soothes skin problems and keeps the bugs at bay.


19.2 ounces coconut oil
22.4 ounces olive Oil
16.0 ounces palm Oil
6.4 ounces Shea Butter
6.4 ounces Neem Oil
23.0 ounces water
9.6 ounces Sodium Hydroxide
14 teaspoons essential oil- equal parts Citronella Java, Eucalyptus Citriodora, Geranium and Rosemary essential oils.


Dissolve lye in water, allow to cool. Combine oils and Shea butter in large soap pot and warm over low until various components have melted. Remove from heat to cool. When both mixtures reach 95'F it's time to make soap. Combine in large pot and stir briskly until soap traces. Add the essential oils and stir well. Pour into mold, put it someplace quiet and wrap to insulate. After 24 hours, unmold and cut as desired. Allow soap to cure for at least three weeks before using.
