Making Soap in Chemistry


The Chemistry class did a great job making soap this year - definitely the best
smelling class of the year. (They picked out Eudoria Essential Oil). We used Palm Oil,
Coconut Oil, Olive Oil and of course Lye. They did the careful measuring required, got
the temperatures of the fatty acids to match that of the lye (100 degrees) and the mix
was perfect. It looks good enough to eat! It should be ready to cut into bars by next
week.
