Make dandelion oil by gathering dandelion leaves, root, and or/flowers and making sure they are clean and dry. Place dandelions and 12 ounces of olive oil in a saucepan over low heat. Do not let boil. Stir and gently mash dandelion to the sides and bottom of the pan on and off for 10-15 minutes. Strain and use the olive oil in this soap recipe.
Weigh dandelion infused olive oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter, sweet almond oil, and avocado oil and add to a large stainless steel pot and heat on low until everything is melted. Allow to cool to 90-100 degrees Fahrenheit.
Put on protective eye gear and gloves and weigh lye into a zip close bag and set aside. Weigh water and take both the water and lye outside. Put on a charcoal mask and carefully add lye into the water and stir until dissolved. Allow to cool to 90-100 degrees Fahrenheit.

When lye water and oil are both around 90-100 degrees, pour lye water into large pot of oils and blend with a hand mixer until light to medium trace.
Pour into mold. Cover and insulate for 24 hours.Remove soap from mold. If it seems too soft to remove, wait another 6 hours and recheck. Cut the soap into 12 four ounce bars and allow to cure in a well ventilated location for 3-6 weeks.
