Follow standard cold process soap procedure (not to be attempted by non-soapmakers). When making soap you are working with sodium hydroxide, or lye, which is a caustic, dangerous chemical. Wear protective skin, eye & respiratory equipment & work in a well-ventilated area. Author is not responsible for any damage or injuries.
This is my original recipe. If it ends up being close to someone else's, that is a happy coincidence.
Rhassoul Clay Tea Tree Vegan Soap
25.6 oz filtered water
9.9 oz lye
25.6 oz olive oil
22 oz organic palm oil
20.9 oz organic coconut oil
1 oz castor oil
1 oz raw organic cocoa butter
1 oz shea butter
9 grams grapefruit seed extract
5 grams Vitamin E oil
55 grams Rhassoul Clay13 grams Tea Tree Essential Oil
Note: After the lye is dissolved into the filtered water, I add the Rhassoul Clay to the lye/water mix, stirring 'til dissolved.
Once I get the oils & butters measured & melted, I add the GSE and Vitamin E oil to that, stirring well.
I restir periodically while I wait for the lye/water mix and the oil/butter mix to get to 100 degrees F.
I add the Pure Tea Tree Essential Oil at trace.
I have split this recipe up and left 1/3 plain unscented, and the other 2/3 Tea Tree because some of us are allergic to Tea Tree oil, but love the Rhassoul Clay vegan soap. When I split a recipe this way, I make sure the molds are different shapes and very clearly labeled, so I don't get confused.
I let the soap goo insulate in molds for 2 to 3 days. Then I remove, cut & lay out to cure. After 2 weeks I label. Should be ready to use 3 weeks from original date of manufacture. I label each bar, listing all ingredients & date of manufacture, weigh, wrap & then ship or hand deliver.
