|Phase||Ingredients for a 50 gr mold||Quantity|
|A||melt & pour soap base, white||47 gr|
|A||laurel essential oil||1,5 gr|
|A||spirulina||0,3 gr (a knife tip)|
|B||peppermint essential oil||15 drops|
|B||vetiver essential oil||5 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) together with the laurel oil and spirulina in a heat-resistant container (Berzelius beaker or a stainless steel cup), and melt in a water bath. Mix well.
After melting, add the essential oils from phase B, mix well and remove from the water bath. The composition is quickly poured into the prepared soap 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.
