Step-by-step recipe for honey soap from scratch in a cold way
To get started, prepare everything you need to comply with safety measures when working with alkali: goggles, protective gloves, gown, all the necessary utensils. Now prepare the form for pouring soap. To do this, at the bottom of the form lay out a bubble wrap with a convex texture up.
- Cool the water, then slowly and gently add the lye to the water until it is completely dissolved until the water is clear. Let the mixture cool.
- Mix argan, castor, coconut, olive, palm and sunflower oils, put the oils in a water bath and bring the mixture to a uniform state. Bring the alkali and oil to an equal temperature of 50-55 degrees and pour the alkali into the oil. Stir the mass until a light trace appears.
- Add honey to the mixture when it cools to 37-40 degrees. If you want a harder soap, add sodium lactate to the chilled alkali. For 1 kg of oil add 1 tablespoon of sodium lactate. For this recipe, you will need about 2 teaspoons.
- Once you have reached the thin track, add honey. For a complete and uniform dissolution of honey in the mass, mix all the blender.
- Add honey essential oil to your soap and mix again with a blender until all the ingredients are completely mixed.
- Keep kneading your soap with a blender until medium.
- Pour the resulting mixture into the prepared form, tap the form several times on the surface to remove the bubbles, and smooth out the surface of the soap with a spatula. Immediately after pouring, put the soap in the freezer or refrigerator from 3 to 24 hours. This method of cooling protects the honey from overheating and discolours the soap. If you want to let the soap go through the gel phase, then you can skip this step. For two weeks, do not remove the soap of their form, let it freeze.
- Then remove the soap from the mold, remove the bubble wrap and cut into sticks. This soap matures from 4 to 6 weeks.
As a result, you get a very delicate, fragrant soap with subtle honey notes. Foam thanks to castor oil will be plentiful, and honey will give the soap healing properties.
