Chapter 8. Tender Apple Cider Soap
9 ounces pure cold apple cider
4.16 ounces lye, 6% super fat
3 ounces avocado oil
2 ounces mango butter
2 ounces castor oil
8 ounces coconut oil
15 ounces olive oil
1/2 cinnamon leaf essential oil
1/2 teaspoon ginger essential oil
Step 1: Mix the water and lye
In a stainless steel bowl, combine the water and lye by adding the lye and stirring well until the mixture clears out. Set aside to cool.
Step 2: Mix the oils
In another stainless steel bowl, combine the oils and mango butter. Heat over medium heat until melted.
Step 3: Blending
When the temperature of both mixtures reaches about 95F, add the water mixture to the melted oils. Mix with a stick blender until you reach a light trace. Mix in the essential oils and blend until you incorporate them in the soap mixture.
Step 4: Molding
Pour the mixture into the molds and leave to harden.
Step 5: Cutting into bars
After a day or two, you can cut the soap into bars and keep them in a place with a good flow of air. Leave the soap bars to cure for 3 to 5 weeks.
