Handmaking Marbled Soap Using Pantry Spices


posted
Categories: Handmade

First, line your mold with wax or parchment paper. Miter the corners so they say as flat as possible against the side of your mold. Smooth corners = pretty bars of soap!



Measure out the spices into separate containers. Mix in just enough avocado oil to form a smooth paste. If you add the spices to the soap dry, they will form dry chunks and be a pain to combine fully into your soap 
 
 Now go ahead and weigh out your other ingredients.
 


Start heating the oils on the stove, and combine the lye and water in a well ventilated area (wear gloves and eye protection, buddy!). I always combine the lye water outside because it's fun to mix dangerous chemical solutions where your neighbors can see.
