3 tablespoons French green clay

2 ounces silk amino acids powder

4.5 ounces Fresh Ginger Lime fragrance oil

Step 1: Water/lye mixture

Add the lye to the distilled water and stir all the time until dissolved. Set the mixture aside to cool.

Step 2: Combine the oils and butters

Combine the oils in a separate bowl and mix in the butters. Melt over medium heat.

Step 3: Blend

Then, add the lye and water mixture to the oils and use a stick blender to combine. When it reaches a light trace, add the silk, fragrance oil, clay, and amino acids powder. Again, mix well to combine the ingredients

Step 4: Molding and cutting into bars

Pour the soap mixture into the molds. Cover the molds and leave for 24 hours to harden. Then, you can remove the soap from the molds, and if you used large containers, you can cut the soap into bars.

Step 5: Leave to cure

Leave the soap bars for about 4 to 6 weeks to cure, and then you can use them.
