My own shampoo bar..homemade
Now the ingredients. This is for 972.9 grams (dry) 1213.7g wet , it will be all in grams sorry I'm Canadian lol.
Boil 266.6g of water with some fresh thyme leaves then let cool down to room temp filter out the thyme leaves. The water is for your caustic solution later on. Put on you safety gear and prepare 120.12g of caustic soda set it aside in a safe place you will mix it in the water later on.
Take some Olive oil 340g, Castor oil 30g, coconut oil 230g, cocoa butter 100g and sesame seed oil 100g. Mix all of these ingredients, your are going to need to heat it up because of the coconut oil (solid at room temp) and cocoa butter. After it is all melted and mixed let it cool to 65f. this is your base oils
While the base oils are cooling down prepare your essential oils that your are going to add last. I used 8g tea tree 8g lavender and 8grosemary keep this for later. Take about 20g of your mixed base oils and add 10g of green clay that you will mix in later (after your essential oils)
Now prepare your caustic soda solution take your cooled boiled water (266.6g) and add very very carefully with all of your protection on 120.12g of caustic soda to your water not the other way around I repeat the soda in the water. It's going to get warm so be careful. Let it cool down to 65f and very slowly pour the solution in your base oils keep all of your safety gearon whenyou do this ( base oils must be at 65f too). Take a hand held mixer (do not us it for food after ever) and mix it all up until it starts to have theconsistencyofpudding. Now you can add you essential oils and green clay.
When everything is well mixed pour it into some molds the best kind aresiliconemolds but plastic will do. Cover up your molds and in a well ventilated room where no one sleeps in . Let you future soap rest for 24 hours. After 24 hours you can take your soap out of the molds with your gloves on very important. Place your bars on a wire rack and let it sit for 4 to 6 weeks this is to let all of the caustic soda evaporate. Voila your soap is ready.
Make sure that all of your soap making utensils are only used for soap making. Wash it all with your gloves on andneutralizeevery thing with whitevinegar. If you by any chance you get some caustic solution on you use the vinegar to neutralize. Be very careful and I do not take any responsibility if something happens it is all at your own risk...good luck.
