Tea Tree Soap Bar 1


We all have had a blemish at least once in our lives. (Some of us wish we had them less.) However, it is a fact of life that we all get them. I wanted to make a soap that was refreshing and useful in cleansing the skin. I used Tea Tree in this soap. Come join me for a fresh and cleansing soap with a little blemish buster to boot. :-)I used clay in this soap because because clay lends a silky sensation when using a soap. Blemished skin is often irritated and sore. I wanted a soap that was smooth and gentle on the skin. No need to make something awful any worse!

I also used Emu Oil in this soap. I was so impressed when I used Emu Oil in a lotion, I just had to use it in a soap. I think it lends a softer silkier sensation to the skin. Try some Emu Oil in your soap! See what you think. I highly doubt you will be disappointed with the results.

When making this soap, I had a couple of “oh duh” moments. First of all, I forgot that excessive heat accelerates trace in a batch of soap. Second, I forgot Rosemary Extract accelerates trace in a batch of soap. For many of you who are soap makers, I am sure you can foresee a problem here. When I first mixed the soap, it accelerated trace so quickly it separated. Argh! This is so aggravating! You can bet I won’t forget this next time!

Mix the oils and lye solution and blend until a light trace is achieved. Add the clay and essential oil and mix well. Pour into a molds and allow to sit for 24 hours. Cut the soap.

    so, if the soap seizes, you just scoop it from the mold and stir it some more, until it gets back to the correct consistency?
