Clean the worktop, mold and all utensils you work with, details in the general safety guidelines.

Preparation method:
Place the diced soap base (as small as possible, about 1 cm) in a heat-resistant container, which can be a Berzelius beaker or a stainless steel cup/kettle, and melt in a water bath.

After melting, add the rest of the ingredients, one by one, as quickly as possible, mixing after each one.
Stir until the soap begins to thicken slightly and remove from the water bath. Now pour into the mold quickly.

Leave the soap mold on a flat surface. After approximately 4 hours the soap is removed from the mold and left to dry until the next day, in an environment as dry as possible. After 24 hours, the soap can be used.

Important:
If the environment in which the soap is stored has medium or high humidity, "dew" may appear on its surface and a gelatinous layer may form. This is a natural phenomenon that occurs in all melt & pour type natural soaps.
To avoid this phenomenon, it is advisable to wrap the soap in a foil or store it in a hermetically sealed container.
When preparing a recipe, after removing the soap from the form/mold, it is stored in a dry place, but if it will not be used in soon, it will be wrapped in plastic foil.
