Finding Parallels Between Recipes and Life
Tools Required: Big pot; spoon; gloves, rubber spatula; safety goggles; soap mold and stick blender.
Let’s Get Started
Before beginning the job, be sure to have all the ingredients, as well as a proper working area. First melt your solid oils, which are your palm oil and your coconut oil. Melt them in the big pot over medium heat. After the oils reach approximately 110 degrees, switch the heat off.
Next, add the olive oil to the soaps recipe. Make sure the palm and coconut oils are hot before adding the olive oil. Make sure before adding the lye, the temperature is 100 degrees. Add the lye quite slowly. Stick blend the mixture and you will begin to see it become cloudy. When mixing, begin by the stick-blender with brief spurts. Do this until the lye and the oils are mixed together 100 percent.
Then add colours, the scents, or something else you find vital, for example, flower petals among other things. Pour the soap mixture into the mold. Pour in a back-and-forth motion. It’ll be thick. After you have finished pouring, in your counter top, tap the mold softly. This will help get rid of any excess bubbles.
In order to maintain heat in you’d want to put a towel over the mold. Place aside your new creative gift for about 24 hours to cool. Once cooled, cut your soaps into the size/shape you want, and decorate with a piece of ribbon or toile.
Everyone is sure to adore your gift of handmade soaps.
