Preparation of essential oil
We measure 1.7 ounces of essential oil of tea tree in a separate glass.
- Slowly and gently add alkali to the water, gently stirring until it is clear.
- Melt the base oils in one container and as soon as the oils and alkaline water have cooled to 55 degrees Celsius and mix the blender to a thin trace. If you want to quickly get soap from the molds and so that the soap is harder, then add 2 tablespoons, sodium lactate.
- Add 2 tablespoons. Activated charcoal. Naturally, preliminary make a grinding. Spoon a dump of coal, and then blender slowly stir to a uniform color. Blender hinder at slow speeds.
- Add the essential oil of tea tree and blender again mix the mixture.
- Now we hinder the mixture to the middle track stage. After that we start to fill our soap in the mold. After you tap / shake the mold with a little bit, let out air bubbles.
- Spray 99% isopropyl alcohol to prevent the formation of caustic sludge. Put the form on a warm surface for 30 minutes, then leave it to one side.
- After 3-4 days, touch the soap: if it is a bit soft, then leave the mold for another 3 days. This is due to the soft oils contained in the soap. Then remove the soap from the mold and let it ripen – the process will take 4 to 6 weeks. Then you can pack in a stylish package.
