My favorite recipe

I decided to make two batches of soap and gift them to my party guest on Christmas eve. I made a very soothing honey and oatmeal soap that contained the wonderful spice turmeric. Turmeric is a natural antiseptic and antibacterial agent.

I also made my favorite; chamomile and mint soap. I love the smell, its so soothing. Below is a quick and easy recipe.


Mint: Contains vitamin A, and is a natural astringent.

Chamomile: Soothes skin rashes, including eczema and acne. Eases minor burns and sunburn.

Vitamin E: Natural antioxidant

Ingredients

  • 4 lb. soap base
  • 72 oz soap mold
  • Dried chamomile flowers, 1 tablespoon per pound of soap
  • Blender
  • Dried mint, 1 tablespoon per pound of soap
  • vitamin E, 1 tablespoon per pound of soap

Steps

Before I lay out my materials I line my kitchen island with craft paper. This makes it for an easier and faster clean up at the end. Lay out all the materials and ingredients. Blend mint and chamomile in a blender. Put soap in microwave pyrex. Cover it with plastic wrap to preserve moisture from escaping the soap base. Microwave it on high for 45-120 seconds. Transfer it to mixing bowl. Mix in mint and chamomile. Next stir in the vitamin E. Then you're ready to pour into the mold.

Ready in 4 hours, may be ready sooner

Herbs for the skin

They're are a lot of different types of herbs and spices you can put into your handmade soaps. I love the combination of mint and chamomile. The smell is delicious.
