Selecting The Oils

Select one of these carrier oils (based on your skin type) to use in the recipe below.

Normal or combination skin: Sweet Almond Oil
Mature skin: Wheat Germ Oil
Sensitive skin: Peach kernel Oil
Dry skin: Apricot Kernel Oil
Greasy or irritated skin: Jojoba Oil
Oily or blemished skin: Sunflower Oil or Avocado Oil
Wrinkles: Evening Primrose Oil


This makes about 4 bars of soap, if you only want to make 1 bar use 4oz soap, 1/2 teaspoon oil and a 1/4 teaspoon of both THE bees wax and Shea butter.

  1. Place the oil, wax and butter into a microwavable bowl or a double boiler, heat until wax becomes soft and has began to melt. (If you are using finely grated bees wax you can usually add the wax, butter and oil straight into the melted soap without melting it first).
  2. Melt the soap following our double boiler Melt and Pour guide.
  3. Once the soap has melted, stir in the lightly melted oils and mix until all are melted and well combined.
  4. Pour into a prepared mold and spray with rubbing alcohol to remove bubbles, allow to cool and harden before removing.

  1. Good afternoon!

    I really enjoyed the teraupetic shampoo recipe.


  2. Correction! I did not include apricot kernel because I was hoping sweet almond would do the trick. I tend to break out easy if what I use on my face is too oily.

  3. I am 62 years old and fit at least 3 of the oil categories: Combination skin, mature skin, sensitive skin and wrinkles. The recipe calls for 1 TBSP of carrier oil. I wondered if I could use 4 different oils to make up the 1 TBSP. I would use 1/4 tsp sweet almond oil, 1/4 wheat germ oil, 1/4 peach kernel oil and evening primrose oil. I did not include the peach kernel oil because of combination skin and hoping that the sweet almond oil will cover that. Would that work for me?
