Equipment

Instructions

  • Measure out your ingredients on the scale.
  • Melt oils and cocoa butter to 115°F over low heat.
  • Make your lye water by combining lye and water in a heatproof glass. Stir until dissolved and then cool in an ice bath to 115°F.
  • Slowly add lye water to oils in a large bowl. Blend until it reaches a light trace.
  • Add in essential oils and blend again.
  • Add the spirulina powder to one side of the bowl. Use a spatula to make small circles along the edge of the bowl until the powder creates a dark green circle around the edge of the bowl. Pull the dark green through the soap once or twice.
  • Sprinkle dried calendula and parsley on top.
  • Pour into soap mold and move somewhere warm for 48 hours.
  • Cut into equal sections and let soap cure for 6 weeks before use in a cool, dark place.
