Soap Recipes 1

4 ounces unscented, clear glycerin soap, 1 teaspoon grated beeswax, ¼ teaspoon lavender fragrance oil, Violet food coloring -- (or one drop each blue & red). Melt the soap over low heat until liquefied. Add beeswax and stir until melted. Remove from heat and add the fragrance oil and food coloring. Stir until blended. Pour into mold and let set for 3 hours. -Author Unknown

MONEY SOAP 1-(can be used for healing, love, etc also): The easiest way to do it would be to take a bar of pure olive oil soap, or if you can't get that, a bar of glycerin soap, and cut it into shavings.
Melt this slowly in a double boiler, or in a pan over boiling water, and mix the shavings with a bit of water so they don't stick together in the pan.
When you have a nice, smooth consistency to work with, you can add empowered ingredients. Good ingredients to add would be:
-money herbs and oils, such as patchouli, mint, basil, cinquefoil, ginger, sage, Tonka, nutmeg, oak moss and lemon balm. -empowered gold glitter -Green vegetable coloring (or whatever color you correspond money and prosperity with)
Once you have added your ingredients, let the mixture cool slightly until you can start forming it in your hands. You can now roll it into balls, wrap them up in some cheesecloth or muslin, and let them harden.
MONEY SOAP 2-An easier way to make a quick money soap is to purchase some melt & pour glycerin from a craft store - I think they even have it at Wal-Mart. It's sold in blocks. Melt the blocks in glassware over the stove or on the microwave until it is liquid.
Add your empowered ingredients quickly, as melt & pour sets fast. Next, pour the mixture into a mold (these can be purchased also, or you can make molds from just about anything from margarine tubs to juice cans to empty toilet paper rolls with foil on one end) and let the soap set.
Melt and pour soap is easier to work with, because you can add your ingredients much easier, and you don't end up with so much soap afterwards.
You can also make bars that are individual to your needs. For example, try pouring half the mixture into the mold, add a toy coin or a plastic dollar sign which you have empowered, then pour the rest into the mold.
When hardened, you will have a soap with an empowered item in the middle of it. You could even put a charged stone in the middle of the soap. Creating the soap with your individuality only makes it more powerful.
The best part? The above directions can be used for any magickal goal, not just money! One more thing, when using your soap, concentrate clearly on your intentions and visualize! For money, visualize the soap attracting the money to you. For illness, visualize the soap cleaning the illness out of you. -Author Unknown

4 parts of lard 3 ounces of lye 5 cups of water 1 tablespoon of lavender oil 1 tablespoon of patchouli oil 1 cup of fresh strawberry juice 1/4 cup of dried soap bark herb Soap made from jewelweed juices removes all itches.-Author Unknown

Witch Soap -Another Recipe
4 lbs lard 13 oz lye (1 can) 5 cups cold water 1 tbsp lavender oil 1 tbsp patchouli oil 1 cup fresh strawberry juice 1/4 cup dried soap bark herb (optional)
In a large enamel or iron kettle, melt the lard over very low heat. (Never use metal) In a separate pot, stir together the lye & the water. Heat lard until small bubbles begin to appear - do not boil.
Remove from the heat & slowly pour the lye solution into the lard. With a big wooden spoon, stir in the lavender & patchouli oils, the strawberry juice & soap bark herb. Simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring frequently.
Pour into 2-inch deep greased pan & allow to cool overnight. Cut the soap into squares and leave in the pan for at least 3 days before removing. Place the Soap bars on waxed paper & allow them to age in a draft-free area approximately 4-6 weeks before using.

Ritual Soap Base
Cut a four-ounce bar of Castile soap into very small pieces, no larger than 1/4 inch square - the smaller (as long as they're in cube form) the better. Place these in a heat-proof, non-metal container.
Heat slightly less than 1/3 cup of water until almost boiling. Pour the still hot water over the soap chips. Let it sit until it is cool enough for you to handle comfortably. Mix the soap and water with your hands. This should moisten the soap chips, but they should not be floating on the water. If they are floating, add a bit more soap.
Let the soap and water sit for about 9 minutes until mushy. If the soap cubes are still hard, set the bowl in a pan of water and reheat it gently until the soap is soft.
While the soap is melting, mix together the oils, and empower them with your magickal need. Then add 20-50 drops of the combined oils to the soap-water mixture. Very warm water evaporates the oils, so wait until the water has cooled. Mix them in thoroughly. The scent should be strong; if not, add more oils until you can smell them rather than the soap.
Divide the scented soap mass into 3 or 4 parts. Form these into spheres with your hands. Place each on a 9 inch square piece of cotton cheesecloth. Pull the ends tightly around the sphere, gather them at the top, and twist together. Tie the ends closed with a strong string. Repeat with each sphere.
Hang the soap spheres in a warm place for 3 days, or until the soap is completely hard. When the sphere's won't give to finger pressure, remove the cloth wraps. The soaps are ready to be used in ritual baths, or they may be wrapped in clean cheesecloth, labled and given to friends who would appreciate them.
