|Do you ever imagine your soap talks to you? I do. I’ve been told it is because I have a very active imagination, but every soap I make has its own voice. This soap says to me in a sophisticated tone of voice, “Absolute indulgence! Pamper your skin with my delightful lather! Give yourself a spa treatment in the shower!”
Whether your soaps talk to you or not, this recipe is truly incredible and worth every drop of oil used for this soap.
Collect needed items:
Weigh the Elements of Bamboo Fragrance Oil into a small beaker and set aside.
Measure fixed oils on your scale. Warm on the stove or in the microwave. I melted the oils in the microwave. Add sodium hydroxide to the water. Mix well.
Combine oils and lye solution. Stir until the soap reaches thin trace. Add the Elements of Bamboo Fragrance Oil. Stir well. Pour soap into molds. I used the Rubbermaid Drawer Organizers #2915. Allow to sit until soap is firm.
The next morning cut into bars. Stack to allow good air circulation. Allow to cure for several days before using. Longer curing will result in a harder bar.
