|When you live in a climate like ours, winter always seems cold, long and dreary. During the worst of the winter months, we keep our spirits uplifted with various products designed to transport our minds to warmer climates. Not only does the bright yellow color of the Winter Sunshine Soap help boost our spirits, but the fresh scent of this soap works wonders as well. This is the perfect unisex bar of soap, even though you will not find me sharing my bar with anybody!
Collect needed items:
Weigh your fragrance oils and set aside.
Measure oils on your scale. Warm on the stove or in the microwave. Bring temperature to near 120 °F. Exact temperature is not critical. Add sodium hydroxide to the water. Mix well. Allow to cool to near 120 °F. Once again, exact temperature is not critical.
Combine oils and lye solution. Stir until thin trace. Upon trace add the fragrance oil blend and color. Stir well. Pour soap into molds. Allow to sit until soap is firm.
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.
Notes: I haven’t cut this soap yet. I expect to release pictures of this soap once it has been cut this afternoon. I love how yummy this soap is smelling right now! Most of the staff have found various reasons to wander by the test kitchen and tell me that this smells just like a bar of soap!
