Walnut Castile Soap

I had to find a use for some excess walnut oil so I made some soap.

Dissolve salt in the water and then add the lye and KOH. One stirred and dissolved, mix in the dye and cool to 150F. Meanwhile heat the oil to 160F. When both solution are at temperature add the lye to the oil and stir until cream, homogeneous, and traced (we used a stick blender to speed up the process).

Next time we might use 1 tsp dye.
