      Yes, water and hardwood ash is to produce lye.

      You can indeed use olive oil, but the better soaps use a mix of oils. The soaps I make typically use a combination of olive oil, vegetable shortening, palm oil, and coconut oil.

      I believe the water and ash thing is to extract Lye (sodium hydroxide).
      Yes you can use olive oil but the process is much longer (time) with olive oil.

      This is pretty interesting. Wonder if it could be made with olive oil? It
      probably wouldn't harden as well (if at all.) I don't carry lard or animal fat
      with me in the wild :-)
