Learn how to masterbatch your lye and oils for soapmaking!

This step by step guide to will walk you through the process of creating a more efficient method of preparing your lye solution and oils for making soap.

What is master-batching?

Basically, master-batching is making up large quantities of ingredients so that you can pour off portions to use for your batches of soap as needed.

You can master-batch lye solution, soapmaking base oils or even essential oil blends.

Master-batching saves you time and effort as a soapmaker. It takes time and effort to lug out all of your supplies; you know…the big buckets of coconut oil and cubes of castor and olive. It takes time to prepare your studio to do that and also time to clean up, as measuring out oils can be messy! By measuring out oils for several batches at once, you can save time by cleaning up only once.

By taking a day to master-batch oils, you can prepare oils for several batches (10, 20…even more) at once to cut down on the prep and cleanup of dealing with oils before and after every singe soaping session. Who has time for that?!

And if you’re a business…time is money! Master-batching can help you cut down on production time, thereby reducing your costs.

Soapmakers have been master-batching lye and oils for years now. The processes in this book are nothing new and not something that I created. I get emails and questions about this topic all the time so I thought that making an eBook would be helpful.

Enjoy!
