How to use fresh avocado in homemade soap free recipe

Fresh Avocado in Homemade Soap
using the hot process method with recipe

The avocado is high in mono-unsaturated fats (good fats), and is able to absorb deeper into the skin.
These healthy fats help you to maintain the moisture level in your skin. Fresh avocado in homemade soap softens, hydrates and nourishes skin.

In light of the number of unhealthy ingredients in skin care products, a natural avocado homemade soap is a great addition to your skin care regime. This soap feels absolutely great on the skin. I have found it to help folks with skin problems like psoriasis and eczema by keeping skin hydrated, not stripping natural oils. 
These are my observations, not a medical statement.

Note: this recipe intended for those with prior knowledge of soap making and understanding of safety issues of working with lye.
Lye is caustic and dangerous, strict safety rules must be used.

Recipe for Avocado soap, using 40 ounces of oil
This is superfatted to 6%, and will give 
you a hard, moisturizing bar.

12 oz   Olive oil
12 oz   Coconut oil
12 oz   Palm oil
  4 oz   Avocado oil

15.2 oz   Water
  5.6 oz   Lye

1.25 oz to 2 oz fragrance oil, strength depends on fragrance 

Start with a half of a ripe avocado.

LEFT: Put 1/2 avocado into blender with 1 cup of water.

RIGHT: Blend until smooth. 
No lumps at all. You cannot put chunks of avocado into your soap! It must be completely smooth.

 Freeze pureed avocado.

When you are ready to make soap, take out avocado cubes. 

Measure your water and avocado.  I use no more than 3 oz of avocado in this recipe.
Your avocado is part of your water amount. So in this recipe the water amount is 15.2 oz, 
that means your water with avocado cubes added is 15.2 oz total.

Note: Using too much avocado in recipe will soften your soap. Stick to 3 oz or less. 
Store your left over avocado cubes in freezer for future soap.

Pour your lye crystals right into your water/avocado and stir until lye is dissolved.

Your oils/butters should already be melted in your crock pot on low.
Strain lye water into your oils if you think you did not get all your avocado smooth, no chunks.

   Stick blend as normal. 

(optional) :  Add fragrance or essential oil and stir well. 

Put into mold and allow to sit overnight.
You will get the most amazing, moisturizing soap! Enjoy!
