This is a cold process soap recipe which makes 1 pound of soap or (4) 4 oz bars.  If you have never make cold process soap I would strongly suggest you take a class first before you start making it yourself.  Handling lye is a dangerous and you should always be extremely careful handling lye.  I recommend rubber gloves, an apron and protective glasses while handling lye.
