pine tar soap
by: renee

I tried using the pine tar in melt & pour soap...it took quite awhile for it to get to a solid state. I dont have much patience with trying new recipes..lol so after letting it cure for 24 hours it still was not totally solid. so i put it in a jar with water and just used it as a liquid soap for my dogs bath. hope this helps, if you try it and have success with it please let me know. :)

Setting Pine Tar Soap
by: Anonymous

The reason it didn't set is because it takes one week to take form and another six weeks to set. Pine Tar soap is a mixture of Fat, water and lye. Adding coconut oil was adding fat to it. That is why it set so precisely. M&P soap bases already have some lye and fat. I suggest taking a look at the ratio of fat, lye, and water. Because, other than the pine tar, that is all you need. The M&P bars are just convenient and easy to poor. Use the pine tar soap on skin problems like acne and other problems. Good Luck :)

Ratio for Pine Tar
by: Jill

I read that you are not suppose to use more than 20% Pine Tar in your soap batch. And use pine tar that does not contain Creosote! I also put pine essential oil in mine to give it a better smell!
