Substituting Oils

If I do not have Shea Butter can I substitute with another oil?


You certainly can use other oils in a soap making recipe.

Visit my page on Soap Making Oils and scroll down to the heading "Formulating a Recipe" to read about what oils have similar properties to others. That will help you decide what oil to use instead.

Remember that every time you change a soap making recipe, you will have to run the recipe through a lye calculator to get the correct amount of lye needed.
