Here is a simple canola/soybean oil soap recipe. Yield is approximately 8 lbs of soap. Lye amount is based on a saponification value of 0.130. See http://www.millersoap.com/soapdesign.html#SAP Tables for more details.

Canola/Soybean Soap

Ingredients: Preparation:
  1. Dissolve lye into water. Prepare this mixture in advance, the water will take time to cool.
  2. Pour oil into large pot, heat to 130 degrees.
  3. Stir lye mixture into the oil.
  4. Blend with a stick blender until you see signs of tracing.
  5. Pour into molds and let harden.

Raw soap will take 24-48 hours to harden, after that the soap can be removed from the mold to cure. Allow 30 days cure time.
