Yolanda's Thai Peanut Soap

Here goes the basic recipe (the oils and lye) but the spices etc. are still open to interpretation.

8 oz shortening
4 oz coconut
4 oz lard
2.5 oz lye
1/2 C water
1/2 C milk (coconut or buttermilk works too)
1 t creamy peanut butter (I’ve used almond and sesame too)

I add the nut butters melted in the milk just before trace. I’ve added about 1 t each of the 5 spice powder and the lemongrass. Also added lemongrass, lime and clove eo’s. I’ve also done this with my regular shortening, coconut and olive oil soap and it worked fine.
