Is it possible to substitute palm kernel oil for coconut oil?

by Bev

I have one basic soap recipe I've used for years - palm oil, coconut oil, olive oil & a few tsp of castor & apricot or sweet almond. I had a very large tub of palm kernel given to me, but I've never know what to do with it. I make small batches - blender size.

How long does palm kernel oil last. I've had the tub for several years.


You certainly can substitute palm kernel oil for coconut oil. Just remember to recalculate the lye amount needed.

I don't know how long palm kernel oil lasts but if it smells good, it should be fine.
