A poppy seeds 3,3 3 gr
A pollen 2,8 2,5 gr

Sanitize the dedicated containers and utensils you will 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 (Berzelius beaker or stainless steel cup) and melt in a water bath.
After melting, add the pollen and mix slowly, until it gets slightly dissolved. This procedure can take 4-5 minutes, after which apricot extract is added, mixed and the container is removed from the water bath.
Add the poppy seeds and let the composition cool for 1-2 minutes, under continuous mixing, in order to avoid the accumulation of the poppy seeds at the bottom of the mold.
Pour the soap 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.

A delicious, slightly exfoliating soap, enriched with nutritious pollen in combination with the smell of ripe, fragrant apricots.
