Summer Cool Down

Introduction

I swear that my personal stash of soap is being raided my gnomes, fairies or something like that. I looked for soap and found that I was down to my last bar. With the opportunity to make a new batch, I wanted to have a cool freshing scent. This 5 pound batch is the result.

Ingredients

    10 oz wt Mango Butter
    20 oz wt Olive Oil
    25 oz wt Palm Oil
    25 oz wt Palm Kernel Oil

    10.88 oz wt Sodium Hydroxide (lye)

    0.9 oz wt Chamomile Buds
    1 fl oz Cool Citrus Basil Fragrance Oil
    30 oz water

Equipment

    Stainless Steel Thermometer
    Stick Blender

Instructions

Make a strong chamomile tea by steeping the 0.9 oz of Chamomile Buds in 30 oz of hot water. Let steep for 30 minutes.

Strain chamomile buds from water and allow tea to cool. (I refrigerated my tea to cool it down.) I ended up with about 28 oz of chamomile tea.

Weigh all oils and melt in soap pot or bucket.

Add lye to cooled chamomile tea. Let lye solution cool.

Combine oils and lye solution. Mix until a light trace has been reached. (I used a stick blender to speed things up.) Add Cool Citrus Basil Fragrance Oil to soap and pour into prepared mold. (My temperatures for this batch were 110 F for the oils and 140 F for the lye solution.)

Comments

The color at the initial mixing of the oils and the lye solutions was a yellowish green. It looked kind of strange. In the mold it started to look more yellowish. We will have to see how it looks when it comes out of the mold. (Post use notes: the soap remained a warm but light yellow color.)
