I really needed a shower after clearing out my storage room.
Wading through the junk and spider webs,
I asked myself, "Self, why do you have this crap?"
Self decided that we really didn't need this crap, and made numerous
trips to the recycle outlet and dump....yes some of it was just plain crap!
Anyways, back to the shower.
I needed a bar that could scrub what I am sure is
spider eggs combined with webs, and dust combined
with a lot of sweat from my forty ninth time up the stairs.
But on the upside, after all of that exercise.....
I am one buff chick
This batch of soap I will title
"Activated Charcoal Cleaning out the Storage Room Sweaty Dust Bustin Soap"
Please follow all safe soaping procedures with the right safety
equipment if you are going to make this soap!
1 oz. Pumpkin Seed Oil
1 oz. Cocoa Butter
2 oz. Shea Butter
3 oz. Castor Oil
9 oz. Coconut oil
2 oz. Hemp Oil
8 oz Olive Oil
7 oz Palm Oil
2 oz. Beeswax
2 Tsp. activated Charcoal
1.5 oz Lavender Essential Oil
1.5 ounces Peppermint EO
7 oz Water
4 oz. Coconut Milk
4.8 oz Lye
|I mixed my coconut milk with water in a 500 ml. canning jar in the sink. I slowly added the lye to the water/milk mix and stirred with a wooden skewer. I was wearing my gloves, long sleeves and safety glasses!|
|I added all of the hard fats into the bowl. I used to use stainless steel bowls but found these|
Betty Crocker bowls at our local Dollarama as they have pouring spouts.
|The lye solution is poured into the hard fats and stirred until it is all melted wearing all my safety gear.|
and this is the result!
Can you imagine I waited for three weeks before I washed off that sweaty spider web infested dust?
That didn't happen.
Luckily for Mr. FT, I had a few bars left from my last batch!
