You will love it Kim. I sb it well into my lye water before I add the lye.

FYI health food stores often have cm powder, saves on the shipping cost for me.

I love coconut milk in soap! It seems to add to its bubbliness and conditioning, but I can't exactly quantify how. I always mix up the coconut milk and make sure it's smooth. Then, for the lye water, I just use a standard 50% solution, then I add the same weight of coconut milk as the lye into the soap after a couple of spins (but before trace).

It always seems to work for me, no matter how much guar gum they add to the coconut milk.

Sounds like you will have a great recipe! I love the site you posted Smile
