|Phase||Ingredients for a 120 gr mold||Quantity|
|A||melt & pour soap base, white||112 gr|
|A||calendula oil||4,8 gr|
|A||yellow 09 oxide, cosmetic pigment||0,5 gr|

Clean the worktop, mold and all utensils you work with, details in the general safety guidelines.
Place the soap base, cut into small cubes, together with the calendula oil and the yellow pigment in a heat-resistant container (Berzelius beaker or a stainless steel cup), and melt in a water bath. Mix well to disperse the pigment.
After melting, add the ingredients of phase B and remove the composition from the water bath. Mix well but not very vigorously so as not to absorb air.
Sprinkle a few marigold flower petals in the mold for decoration and quickly pour the soap.
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.
