|Phase||Ingredients for a 130 gr mold||Quantity|
|A||melt & pour soap base, white||122 gr|
|A||cocoa butter||4,7 gr|
|B||ground coffee||2 gr|
|C||cinnamon essential oil||16 drops|
|C||sweet fennel essential oil||38 drops|
Clean the worktop, mold and all utensils you work with, details in the general safety guidelines.
Melt the diced soap base (as small as possible, about 1 cm) together with the cocoa butter, in a heat-resistant container, which can be a Berzelius beaker or a stainless steel cup/kettle.
After melting, one third of the contents are transferred to another glass (cup) in which 1.5 g of coffee is added and mixed.
In the other container add the essential oils from phase C and the rest of the coffee, and mix vigorously. Both glasses are removed from the water bath.
Pour the contents of the two containers quickly and simultaneously, from two opposite sides, into the prepared mold.
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.
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.
