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.
