Green Tea Soap with Grapeseed Oil
I wanted a soap recipe that could highlight the beautiful color of the grapeseed oil. The introduction of our Green Tea Fragrance Oil seemed to be just the perfect combination. To ensure a good green color, I also used a small amount of the Mint Green Color.
8 oz wt Grapeseed Oil
20 oz wt Palm Oil
16 oz wt Palm Kernel Oil
20 oz wt Sunflower Oil
24 oz water
8.65 oz wt sodium hydroxide (lye)
3 bags Moroccan Mint Green Tea
1 fl oz Green Tea Fragrance Oil
0.25 cc Mint Green Color
InstructionsHeat water to a boil and steep the tea bags in the water until the tea solution has cooled to room temperature. Remove and discard the tea bags. Add sodium hydroxide to tea solutions. Melt oils and add Mint Green Color to the oil mixture. Combine oils and lye solution and mix until a light trace has been reached. Add 1 fl oz Green Tea Fragrance Oil and mix well. Pour into molds.
This finished soap has a gorgeous green color.
