Lavender Tea Tree Facial Soap Recipe

I don’t have 1 oz soap molds so I make a 4 oz square bar and then cut it into 1 oz slices.

 

Lavender Tea Tree Facial Soap

4 oz Shea Melt and Pour Soap Base (divided into 2 parts)

1/8 tsp Kaolin Clay and/or Rose Clay

1/8 tsp Activated Charcoal

8 drops Evening Primrose Extract

6 drops Lavender Essential Oil

4 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil

10 drops Jojoba Oil

 

Layer 1

In a measuring cup place 2 oz of the Shea Melt & Pour soap base and then add Kaolin Clay or Rose Clays.

Melt in microwave in 10 second bursts and mix well for a minute. Add Lavender Essential Oil, Evening Primrose Extract and Jojoba Oil. Pour into mold and spritz with isopropyl alcohol to remove any bubbles.

If you want your layers of soap to remain completely separate place the mold with Layer 1 in the freezer while you prepare Layer 2.

Layer 2

In the same measuring cup place 2 oz of the Shea Melt & Pour soap base chopped into pieces and Activated Charcoal.

Melt in microwave in 10 second bursts and mix well for a minute. Add Jojoba Oil and Tea Tree Essential Oil and mix well.

Spritz the clay soap with isopropyl alcohol again before pouring the charcoal layer on top. The alcohol is essential to ensuring the layers of soap stick together. Depending on how long Layer 1 cooled when you pour Layer 2 it may sit on top as a separate layer or immediately mix in.

Let your mold cool for an hour or more before removing, if you are impatient you can put it in the freezer but take it out after about 10 minutes or it might sweat glycerin when it comes out of the mold.
