Curry Powder

There are so many curry recipes out there to choose from and this is my first time making it. After consulting my cookbooks, and the internet on at least 50 different recipes I picked one that I have all ingredients on hand for, after some slight modifications I am happy with this, and it smells so much better than the jar of stuff I bought and ran out of.

2 tablespoons Cumin, ground

2 tablespoons Corriander, ground

1 1/2 tablespoons Turmeric, ground

1 1/2 teaspoons Ginger, ground

1 teaspoon dried Mustard powder

1/2 teaspoon ground Pepper

1 teaspoon Cinnamon, ground

1/2 teaspoon Cardamom, ground

1/2 teaspoon ground Chili blend or Cayenne

High Cleansing, Low Moisturizing Cold Process Soap

I find that some people do not like moisturizing soap and the feel of all of the oil stripped from their skin is desirable so I am going to try and make a very cleansing, low moisturizing, low superfat soap with primarily Lard and Coconut oil. This recipe has a 3% superfat. I used chrome green oxide, titanium dioxide and gold mica for colorant.


327.4 grams of lard

496.1 grams coconut oil

99.2 grams castor oil

327.4 grams water

154.8 grams NaOH
