Green Tea Soap with Grapeseed Oil


    Date : 2002-07-05

    Introduction

    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 insure a good green color, I also used a small amount of the Mint Green Color.

    Ingredients

    Instructions

    1. Heat 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.
    2. Add sodium hydroxide to tea solutions.
    3. Melt oils and add Mint Green Color to the oil mixture.
    4. Combine oils and lye solution and mix until a light trace has been reached.
    5. Add 1 fl oz Green Tea Fragrance Oil and mix well.
    6. Pour into molds.
