Beeswax Soap

1 ounce beeswax (ounces are by weight)
6 ounces olive oil 
6 ounces coconut oil 
9.5 ounces tallow
3 1/2 ounces Lye (sodium hydroxide) 
 8 ounces water
2 teaspoons fragrant essential oil
    Add lye to the water and wait for it to cool to 160 degrees F. Melt the beeswax. Weigh and combine the oils and tallow. Mix in the melted beeswax. Heat the oils to 130 degrees F. Slowly pour the lye water into the fat mixture while stirring. Stir for 20 minutes, add the fragrant oil, and pour the soap into molds. Harden the soap in a freezer for 2 to 3 hours. The soap is harsh at this point so wear rubber gloves and remove the soap from the molds. Place it on unprinted cardboard or paper bags to age at least two weeks.
