"Sanitary" soap with sage and guaiac

"Sanitary" soap with sage and guaiac

Formula: IL749

Phase Ingredients for a 70 gr mold Quantity
A melt & pour soap base, clear 67 gr
A blue 15 oxide, cosmetic pigment 0,03 gr ~ a pinch
B guaiac essential oil 2 gr
B ravensara aromatica essential oil 25 drops
B sage essential oil 7 drops

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

Place the diced soap base (cut as small as possible, about 1 cm) in a heat-resistant container (Berzelius beaker or a stainless steel cup) and melt in a water bath. When melted, add the pigment and mix well until completely dispersed.

Add the ingredients from phase B, mix well and remove the container from the water bath. 

It is poured in one motion into the prepared mold. Surface air bubbles can be removed by spraying with a little alcohol if necessary.

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.
