Step 1 – Create your lye solution. Set it aside to cool down.
Step 2 – Weigh out the coconut oil and melt.
Step 3 – Weigh out the avocado oil into the melted coconut oil.
Step 4 – Let your oils and lye solution cool to under 90 degrees F.
Step 5 – Add your fragrance oils to the melted oils.
Step 6 – Combine your lye solution and oils. Emulsify your soap.
Step 7 – Pour off about 1/8 cup of soap and color with pink mica.
Step 8 – Add sea salt to your uncolored soap and bring to medium trace.
Step 9 – Double pour into your molds as shown in the video.

After 24 hours, cut your soap and let it cure for 4-6 weeks. The longer you let cure, the milder your salt bars.
